Started painting this project after turning off the Packer game around half-time. Hope to have this done by Thursday.
This would make a great stocking stuffer. EDIT: I have fixed the wobbling problem. Check out tomorrows Second Slice to find out what I did wrong and how I fixed it.
Just finished applying 3 coats of rub on poly to all the animals! once they are dry I’ll get a final pic of the animals with the Ark and post that in projects! Till then, here are two pics of the animals. Woods used are padauk, black walnut, yellowheart, red cedar, ash, aspen, basswood, wenge, and beechnut.
I have been salvaging wood from my job sites. The latest was some cedar cut offs, so decided to cut them into very thin slabs of about 1/4 and see what i could make. So far i have made a tray to contain silver ware in the silverware drawer and a large tray for the other utensils in that drawer and a pencil box. I am thinking of making larger items so have been joining the pieces which measure about 2 1/2 X 15 X 1/4” to make larger pc of about 15 X 15 X 1/4. Joining these pc’s h...
Finished up assembly on this project. Had a blast and learned a lot along the way. The wheels are bought..I don’t own a lathe and have no desire to try to make them myself. As for the paint, I am going to mix my own military colors for this project using craft paint I have laying around. I post finished pics when I have them. Here are the latest photos to hold you over.
Got the chassis and part of the cab glued up yesterday.
I am making really good progress on this project. Finished assembling and gluing the tank and trailer two nights ago. Last night I got a good start on the tractor. Once all are built, then it is on to paint. I have been very fortunate to have enough scrap wood to make this project. The only cost incurred has been the cost of the plans. Toymaker Press really puts out some nice toy plans.
Made some progress on the tank. Adding wheels and gluing the turret. Yes it rotates. Since I am painting this for my customer I can use up some of the scrap wood I have laying around. I hope to get the trailer done today as well since the Packer game is on this evening.
Got the first three pieces of the tank cut and currently gluing. Need to get going on the axles and wheels next. When done, this project will be painted and given to a co-worker for his son for Christmas.
Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan #6: The Bonding of Rider and Horse plus Glimpse of the Steed's Future
It’s Emily’s third birthday, and there’s a party, and stuff, and cupcakes, and 5 grandparents, and the camera. These are in chronological order. 1. Checking the hooves. 2. Discussing saddle styles. 3. A few fatherly tips. (The pen on his ear was to record any apt quotations of the moment.) Mom smiles from the margin of the pasture. 4. “Climb aboard,” a classic unintentional pun. 5. Gramma gets involved. 6. Little B...
