« Part 92: T&J Dozer #2&3 Part 93 of Toy costruction series Part 94: WS Tractor Semi »

Got a few more things done or at least heading in that direction.
Worked on the fuel tanks and got the base for it ready..


Then on to one of the funner things to make.

Clamped down some boards at just the right angle and by raising the blade about an 1/16” at a time cut out the blade.

The project is finished find the post HERE.


It’s getting there won’t be long now.

It really can be scary but the less wood you cut out at a time the smoother it works so don’t get in a big hurry is my best advice..
A friend of mine does this for whole cabinet sets, making crown molding.
Here’s some I made for a chifferobe.
It was a long time ago but seems like I made three, 6’ lengths to do it.

Like crowie said, Love the laminated timber. I’m too lazy to do it but that doesn’t mean I cant admire it in other people’s work.

Talking about laminate… You had me going in admiring your forward thought of the walnut blade tip in picture 4.
As I was formulating the praises in my response, I noticed it missing from the cut (following pictures) and felt disappointed. Nevertheless it does look great.

Here we go again… using that word loosely.

While I haven’t made this model, I made the grader which uses the same principle… and I was crapping myself all the way throuh… Challenging.. hmm, interesting.. hmm or maybe even clever... but certainly not fun... The fun part was reaching the count of 10 when checking my fingers after the cut…
But I do agree you sit back with a proud sense of achievement….., when finished.

PS. Like the demon protecting the chifferobe.

Ducky Look at it again and think how deeply I would have had to cut into the wood to do it all at once, plus I didn’t think about the walnut blade tip till it was cut and the notion hit me.

Is he the vicious one…? Looks like the dust is too afraid from landing on the top of the cabinet, or has the boss (Mrs. #4) organised a “tidy” for the photo shoot?

My wife is a dust buster from way back and she would appreciate the compliment.
That’s one reason my many models have just about reach their limit, she doesn’t want to dust them any more, so may need to find some new homes for some of my models.
Sad but true!!!

I did look at it a few times and that’s why I thought it was clever as you would have had to plan it carefully to shave so much off to just get a tip. You still get “E” for effort…
