I needed to build the body first because I extended the cab and didn’t want to make the frame till I could see what was going to happen. The reason for the truck is to find a place for...

Making Wooden Model Plans #9: Got some wheels made

01-30-2018 09:49 PM by htl | 3 comments »

The treads I made on the last post were just to big so sanded down one set and retreaded them. Now these are the right size. And here’s how I cut the wood down for my wheels.I cut the board just a tad over size 2 3/4” then rip on the table saw using a rip blade that came with the saw and it does a pretty smooth job of it. The project page is here.

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #10: Rattles and custom storage box (drawing included)

01-22-2018 06:05 PM by sras | 9 comments »

I just posted my rattles & box project and then I remembered I took enough build pictures for a blog post. So, here it is. The fun thing about this project is that it requires very little materials. There are three blanks cut from bird’s eye maple. I ended up cutting the middle one a little thin so I added a veneer of mahogany to each side. The caps have recesses formed by a 1” core box bit in a drill press. The caps are cut to length. Next caps are glued t...

Baby Gym #2: Template

06-29-2016 09:06 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

I cutout the shape using 1/4” oak veneer. The height clearance seems adequate to fit over the baby and overall, I like the shape. The 1/4” veneer may be too thin to use as a routing template (it’s closer to 0.2”), so I may have to make a second template with 1/2” MDF or something a little thicker so the flush trim bit has a better surface to ride.

Baby Gym #1: Design

06-09-2016 07:42 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

New baby means new project. The wife wants a new baby gym. I could buy one of those cheap fabric one from Target or make one. Luckily, the wife is letting me make one. I found one I liked on Etsy and drew one up to make. Ideally, I’d like to design my own, but with the new baby, there’s less time. The design The dimensions The holes are to hang toys from it. Next step is to cut the template. I’m leaning toward using the template to route out the forms. I...

There needs to be a 1/2” slack for the tracks to move smoothly but when it’s not going to be moved around I’d like it to look nice and tight so made the power wheels axle adjustable still need to make a nice nob for the back but it’ll come.
