I’ve posted two projects on making parts for the Delmar Caboose. The Mason Dixon Woodworking club was asked to assist in the restoration. I volunteered to make the parts needed.
I am now making the siding for the caboose. 3 1/2” wide with a 1/4” tongue and groove with a “V” cut relief at the edge of the board.
I must have given up on taking pictures during the process. bucause no picture were made during the actual milling.
I used a rabbit bit with a bearing that would cut 1/4” deep. I then cut on each side of the board to leave a 1/4” tongue.
The groove was cut with a 1/4” slotting bit that gave a 1/4” deep and wide bit.
I made 10 boards 8’ long
The bevel on the edge was made with a 45 degree bit that gives you the interlocking corners.
I only went about 1/8” deep on the edge.
Then I really screwed up on the pictures.
I made 44 pieces of external window mounding. I made it one evening and delivered it the next morning so the only pictures I got was stack of boards that I used to cut the molding.
I’ll simulate the cuts and post another picture. The window molding was between 24” and 36” long. They were all cut out of ends of 2 X 6 rafters that came from a home being constructed by one of the Mason – Dixon Woodworker members. I tried to pick all of the boards that were clear. But a few had small knots.
They were resawed again to 7/8” and planed to 3/4” and ripped to 2 1/2” wide.
