Desert Storm Tank Carrier #5: Truck is complete....entire project is now assembled!

10-20-2012 04:42 AM by DigBaddy | 2 comments »

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.

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #3: Completed Assembly on tank and trailer

10-18-2012 01:38 PM by DigBaddy | 2 comments »

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.

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #2: Tank progress

10-14-2012 07:25 PM by DigBaddy | 3 comments »

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.

Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan #6: The Bonding of Rider and Horse plus Glimpse of the Steed's Future

10-08-2012 09:07 PM by Lee Barker | 7 comments »

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...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #16: X Puzzle

08-30-2012 12:11 AM by rance | 1 comment »

Someone came up with this puzzle a long time ago. I think it was Moses, or maybe Methusula. I first saw it Here on LJ. I eventually drew it out in SU. So many folks have asked for the drawing I thought I’d post it here. It should be self-explanatory. PS: Obviously you’ll need to make two of these pieces.

Noah's Ark #1: The Plans and my first cuts.

08-16-2012 08:56 AM by DigBaddy | 0 comments »

My name is Keith. I am very new to scroll sawing. I received a scroll saw for Father’s Day, so that makes me about 2.5 months old in scroller years. :) I started off in my scrolling hobby by cutting some basic puzzles from this book. A few of the ABC snake puzzles later and I was itching for something a little more challenging. I stumbled upon Toy Maker Press and was immediately drawn to their Noah’s Ark sets. I’ve wanted to build one for my little nieces for quite ...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 13 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

05-24-2012 03:01 AM by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...
