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 flattening the bottom of the boiler where it will meet up with the base.
Having the bolt in the center made making a jig to flatten it on the SS drum sander quite easy.
Still it made me quite nervous didn’t want to bugger it up this late in the game.
Here you can see where the sanding will be done.
The sanding disk is moved to the wood so much nicer and the wood can’t move and get out of control.
I need to mention that I had hit the bolt lose on the first day so it was tight but not glued in at this time.
With that done I could unscrew the bolt from the boiler.
Here it is sitting on the base.
Tomorrows garbage day so cleaned out the cyclone and had 6.5” of saw dust in the 7 gal. bucket.
Quite a bit a saw dust just went out the door with my grass blower, when I use it to really clean out the dust.
So here’s where we’re at, at the end of the day.
Not glued up but where I can see whats needed.
