Toy Construction #235: Caboose using Gatto plans #2

10-18-2018 10:54 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Got it in my head the the Reading train needs some cars so ordered the Gatto plans that match up with the train.This will be my third caboose but all are completely different.It also come with a Hopper car which will be a new type car for me, it also comes with a passenger car but it’s I can’t remember but it’s way long so may build a cattle car instead down the road. {I love to build cattle cars. LOL} I forgot to bring the camera with me the first day but you get the ...

Toy Construction #225: Belly Dump Trailer #2

09-10-2018 08:38 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Got started yesterday on the Toys and Joys Belly Dump Trailer to go with my just finished semi. The two main frame members are about the only thing that doesn’t have some off the wall angle to it so it’s making for an interesting build. As you can see in the picture I glued up the outside of the frame and then added the bracing as I went. I clamped the main brace to the table and as I added parts the glue would glue the parts together but also glue them to the copied ...

Toy Construction #223: Semi Truck Bumper, mud flaps

08-31-2018 09:46 PM by htl | 4 comments »

With this build I keep making things and then come up with something else so if this keeps up I’ll nearly have enough parts for a second truck. LOLI came up with a different front bumper. Was! IS!!! Then on to the mug flaps. I’m going to use two of my extra wheels for the front, not as pretty as the maple one’s but will match up better. That’s it for this trip, hope you all liked them, and thanks for checking the t...

Toy Construction #221: Semi Truck 4.5+2 Playing with some wheels

08-25-2018 09:29 PM by htl | 7 comments »

Figures I’d get started with the wheels.Making 20 of them, 8 for the truck and 8 for a trailer and then 4 extras for another car or maybe the trailer needs 12 wheels?.I already have my fronts.Glued up a bunch a walnut scraps and then band saw them round, then drill out the centers, and need I say sand, sand, sand. LOL I left 1/8” to the back of the outside wheel center so the 1/4” axle holes will help line up the two tires for gluing up I will later drill out the center d...

Toy Construction #217: Semi Truck T&J #2

08-12-2018 11:47 PM by htl | 9 comments »

Started on another semi truck, been thinking about building a trailer and thought it would be nice to have the truck ready for it.Doing it this way I’ll make all the tires at one time and they’ll all match up, which has been a problem some times.I never seem to make them the same way. :-[Just some quick shots before I headed out the door.

Toy Construction #215: Hi Track Dozer It's time to make the blade

07-12-2018 07:19 PM by htl | 9 comments »

There’s some very interesting table saw set ups to get this done.You may have noticed two different woods being used but half way through I saw That I wanted walnut tips so cut out the maple and then glued on so walnut.I don’t back up very often but knew this would look ten times nicer. [I don’t have much walnut]I take just a half turn of the height adjustment at a time and even less on the last pass going very slowly to cut down on saw marks, that will needed to be sanded o...
