1920's Ford "C" Cab Farm Truck for a little boy's first birthday

1920's Ford "C" Cab Farm Truck for a little boy's first birthday 1920's Ford “C” Cab Farm Truck for a little boy's first birthday.After seeing the Ford “C” Cab Farm Truck I made for the local boys & girls club Easter Guessing competition our youngest daughter asked if I could make a similar but smaller version for Asher's cousin Sammy's first birthday.I had the pattern for the “C” Cab so it wasn't too difficult to scale down the farm truck to a smaller tray back truck with not too much extra detail to ensure it's playable for a little bloke.The timber is a mixture of Merbau, Spotted Gum, Blackheart Sassafras with Beech Wheels while the finish is my home made Wipe On Poly.

Taming the beast.... belt sander stand

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Taming the beast.... belt sander standI've had this 4×24 Bosch belt sander for some 23 years and used it extensively when building my timber frame house.But when it comes to woodworking, it has proven to be a project wrecker, as it can remove a lot of material quickly, and if you let it rock or tilt it can easily put a divot in your project.So for some time, I've wanted to make a stand with a fence, but the box designs I've seen look pretty heavy and limit access to the controls. So I used 1×1 80/20 extrusions with aa Aluminum plate for the spine.The stand holds the sander securely to the base and plumb to the fence, and can be used in 3 different orientations. It has pins spaced to match the hole pattern in my downdraft outfeed table to keep it securely in place when in use.Used it today for the first time and all seemed to function well.Thanks for looking in,Matt

One more rattle for McKinlee

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


One more rattle for McKinleeThe last rattle with the marble in it was a little too big for our great granddaughter's little hand so I made this one a little smaller. It is made from 2 flat pieces of cherry with a groove bored in each side and glued together with few BB's inside. It is 4” in diameter and the ring is 1/2” diameter with a 1/4” hole n the center.It is buffed and waxed with Carnuba waxcheers, Jim
