Hillbilly Track Saw Project

11-20-2011 10:46 PM by SeaWitch | 12 comments »

This is my first blog entry here on LJ. A few people asked me for some details about my Hillbilly Track Saw, so I’m going to tell you everything here. I’m shocked and honored that this project was chosen for a Top 3. I’m a rookie, and I just thought the photo would fade into oblivion. So thank you, everyone. I designed and built this because I have a lot of plywood to cut up. I’m not experienced enough or courageous enough to put big sheets through my little...

Sources #1: French Polish

11-20-2011 09:59 AM by Byron | 1 comment »

I have been reading about French Polishing for some time now and finally dedicated the beginning of my thanksgiving break to finding a good source for how to apply this classical finish. Shellac is a very finicky finish and is hard to REALY get right. Although this site is for guitars it seems to be and excellent guide to French Polishing.

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #9: Finishing and Assembly

11-20-2011 01:27 AM by RandyMorter | 2 comments »

I decided to just wipe on some Danish Oil for these projects, mainly because I’m lazy and didn’t want to try to do the Arm-R-Coat. I MAY spray some shellac on them but I’m not committed to it at this point. Sometimes it seems easier to apply finish before the full assembly in order to get into all the nooks and crannies. Since I’m just doing a wipe on oil I figured I could proceed with glue up. First I glued the bottom wing to the fuselage. I marked the center of the front of the bottom...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #8: Main wing struts and propeller

11-20-2011 12:52 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

I cut the main wing struts a bit over length, with the expectation that I’ll have to fit the struts on each plane. There are 8 struts that hold the top wing on – it doesn’t have any connection directly to the fuselage. I used store bought 3/16” dowels for the struts. I cut the rear two body-to-top-wing struts at 1-3/8” and the forward two body-to-top-wing struts at 1-1/2”. I cut the two vertical lower-to-upper-wing struts (the center struts) at 3-1/2” and the other four struts to 3-7/8”. I cu...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #4: Now I have a box

11-19-2011 04:14 PM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

So first I sanded up the bottom detail using a drum sander on my ancient drill press next I cut the dado for the bottom to set in. I don’t have a dado blade so I just make multiple passes on the table saw. After that is done, I move on to sand the inside of the box. Since it is nearly impossible to do after the box is together this is the perfect time to do it. Now it’s just a little glue and some tape. I have found that with boxes this small tape is more than enou...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2)

11-18-2011 09:29 PM by StumpyNubs | 23 comments »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop… Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more! This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”. My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a hon...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #3: Bottom Detail

11-18-2011 05:01 AM by JoeyG | 0 comments »

Here I have laid out a design for the bottom detail that I liked, cut it out with my jig saw, and finished up with a 1” drum sander on my drill press. I have a few more boxes to do this to but hopefully I will have a box to show how tomorrow. I am also going to try to remember to take pictures of each step. Thanks for taking a look.
