Construction Grade Toys #4: Making Fenders ¡Ay, Caramba!

08-28-2011 02:59 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

Stalled out a bit making fenders,. At about 1.5 hour a pair and then the router ate a couple of pairs and then one pair were not even close to a match, then another pair the wood fractured. Here is a couple of pics of my first attempt. You can see one of the ways of working with small pieces is to mount you hand held tools like my ROS upside down and bring the piece to it. The fenders turned out very nice but then the router ate them. On the final attempt I then decided to glue the bla...

Puzzles and the continuing process

08-22-2011 04:32 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

It has been a good week in the shop and that is always a good thing. I have been experimenting with puzzles this whole weekend as I have a request to make one. I played around for a day or so and have pretty much the entire puzzle I was asked to make done but need to make a frame. I want to thank Carl at Scrollsawvideo.com for posting his video on making jigsaw puzzles. The process he uses is very easy and my sample piece I decided to make came out great. If you watch his video you wi...

Construction Grade Toys #3: Little more work done

08-20-2011 05:56 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

I got back into the shop late this evening and got a little more work done. As you can see from the pics the kit (wheels etc) for the truck came in today. I had to recut the carriage piece this evening as it was a bit more narrow than the hood. The next and most important is I had to work out is the difference from the tractor trailer plan and the dump truck plan to get the Hoist Support and Hoist components of the dump truck box aligned to the tractor trailer. I think I have everything worke...

Construction Grade Toys #2: Getting Started on the Dumptruck

08-15-2011 09:40 PM by sIKE | 2 comments »

The plans for the Dump Truck come from the July 2011 issue of Wood Magazine (just the Tractor Trailer) and from the April 1995 issue of Wood Magazine (the Dump truck). I will be using the Cab and Chassis from the Tractor Trailer and the Payload box from the dump truck plan. I got started with the chassis and the hoist support. Since the dump truck was a bit smaller scale I had to do a bit of and upsize the hoist support. The next challenge was the one inch notch in the hoist support. You c...

08-15-2011 08:58 PM by sIKE | 5 comments »

He will get one from each of us for Christmas and the other for his birthday. First up the Dump Truck. ps It is nice to get...

Lower rails, leg vise, and sliding deadman

08-12-2011 05:46 AM by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

First of all I just want to say that I love the term “sliding deadman”. I think it’s hilarious! As a forensics investigator for the Edmonton Police Service (a city nearing a million in population) I have seen my fair share of dead men, literally. But I have never seen one sliding! Not even in the cold, snowy, icy winters that we have. But I’ll bet that if I do, I will probably bust a gut laughing while thinking about the work holding device on my bench instead of whate...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #8: Side panels and rails...

08-11-2011 05:02 AM by RS Woodworks | 7 comments »

Hey all! It’s been a bit since I posted my last progress on this workbench, but thats not to say I haven’t been working on it. Since the last time, I managed to do some more work on the legs to get them ready to accept the rails and panels for the sides of the bench. Remember those Douglas Fir posts that I posted I think in my first blog? Well I resawed a couple of those to use for the panels, really nice wood! The posts were thick enough to get 3 full 1” boards o...

Graham Nash Music Stand #2: Taking Shape

08-07-2011 05:59 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

This is the laminated adjustable section after the clamps came off: It gets run through the planer and its pretty much done: These are the two halves of the main lower section of the stand. The insides are routed out to receive the adjustable post which will slide inside the lower section. I removed most of the inside on the router table. Then I finished it by using a palm router with bottom clearing bit until the slots were the perfect size. Checking the fit with the two...
