Toy costruction #48: Coal Train Build day 8 Put it together just to see how it may look.

05-09-2016 09:10 PM by htl | 10 comments »

If you see something you think needs some work tell me now it’s all glued up tomorrow.I still need to finish up the wheel linkage but that’s about all besides making the coal or wood car.To me the wood car looks better, which one do you like.O! and I guess I need to build the bell to fill that spot on the boiler roof and the tanks under the cabin and the – - – - the more I look at it the more I see what still needs doing. AAAAA!!!!!!

Toy costruction #44: Coal train Builds #2.5

05-03-2016 01:09 AM by htl | 12 comments »

I thought I took a bunch more pictures but???Played with the cabin walls and windows. Next I needed a roof so here’s my take on rounding one out.First I glued the pattern on the edge of the wood [made the wood block extra big so plenty of room to work]then hot glued a big square of scrap 3” X 3” to the roof bottom and cut it out on the band saw.Then with the wood scrap still on it to keep it strait and level I sanded it on the SS. Then I really had some fun...

Jensen's Train Bed #2: Front Cap

08-14-2012 08:53 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I am working on the front cap of the train bed. I made a template for the arch and circle. This is something that I should have done about 3 trains ago. I keep having to reinvent the shapes. After I had the templates made, I then used the template to create two identical pieces. To make the front cap thicker we spaced them out with some poplar for framing. The next step will be to wrap it with some bending plywood. Pictures More building pictures and video can be found at:http:/...

Jensen's Train Bed #1: Starting to Build

08-14-2012 11:50 AM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

ALL ABOARD! Starting to build one of my train bed. This is what it will look like when I am finished. It will, of course, have a few customized changes requested by the customer, but overall will follow this pattern. I will blog about the steps in this series, but if you’d like to look forward I do post the pictures first on the Current Projects Page of my site. I’m usually a little slow on the write-up.

Scroll Saw Forum #2: Something Different For Me, Intarsia?

07-21-2012 03:26 AM by TripleB | 1 comment »

This pattern came out of the book by Kathy Wise, “Intarsia, Woodworking For Beginners”. My Nephews birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and he loves Trains, so I thought I would give this a go. This is my first attempt at anything that resembles Intarsia, even though I don’t really consider this Intarsia, more segmentation even though it did come out of an Intarsia book, so not sure what to call it. Here are some more pictures of it. The woods I used were...

Wood Scale Models #1: 1949 Reading Steam Freight Train Part # 1

12-08-2011 07:53 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

1949 Reading Steam Freight Train I started a new project. It is a steam train using Gatto plans. I currently have made the main frame, boiler and the display track. I made a jig out of a strip of plywood with grooves spaced the right distance apart and then glued a fence on one side to line up the cross ties. I also made several spacers to go between the cross ties. This made it super easy to make the track. Here is the main frame coming together. The b...

Train Bed #7: Completed

04-23-2009 03:36 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

The train is back from graphics and completed. Well almost. I am thinking about putting a bell on the front and I need to add the child’s name under the window. Other than that it is finished. After I got it back from graphics, I just reassembled it cut slats and wired the lights. I put a small knob on the headboard to activate a touch sensor. I mounted the control box under the slat cleats, hidden and out of the way. The wire runs under the cleats to the front where it plugs in to ...

Train Bed #5: The Finish

04-15-2009 01:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I’ve put the finish on the train bed. It is just the base color. The rest will be a vinyl similar to what the car wraps are made from. On the base I used a black lacquer undercoater and a flat black lacquer. I’ll do a little bit of assembly on it before it goes to the graphic people. Here are some pictures after the finish: For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us build this or see what we are doing live:
