Not a Ford, but it could be, Just a little truck ready for fun, play and imagination!Not a Ford, but it could be, Just a little truck ready for fun, play and imagination!Well it was a wet summer downunder and Autumn [Fall] has been equally as damp.
My under the house shed which is cut into the sandstone rock has been consistently damp to wet as the water hydraulics through the rock.
I've had 4 fans running 24/7 since December in an attempt to keep the timber and shed work area dry.Still saying that the TOYMAKING MUST GO ON!This is another batch of 4 little trucks or maybe Utes for the local shop.The timber in the body is recycled doors for a 1960's commercial cupboard laminated with another misc timber.The tray timber base is TallowWood with the side also for the cupboard.The truck is nearly 7” [175mm] long by 4” [100mm] wide and 4” [100mm] high.Headlights and tail lights are furniture buttons.The wheels are 1.75” dia shop bought.I used my homemade wipe-on-poly as the finish 4 coats.Both Papa Smurf and Handy Smurf were very pleased with the finished vehicles.

Router Plane and Fence

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Router Plane and Fence So a couple of upcoming projects require a couple of planes I don't currently own – rabbet, plough, and a router plane. What a great opportunity to try my hand at building a few shop made tools!This goal of building projects requires a bit of a set order of operations, first of which is a router plane. So here is my first attempt at ever making a tool, using only hand tools. Nothing overly complicated was done, I like to take a pragmatic approach to most things in life so it makes sense to do so when designing tools. I would like to add a depth stop to the blade itself but I'm having an issue finding an appropriately sized collar that secures.The body is made using cherry for the top, maple for the base, and walnut for the fence. A Veritas 1/4 router plane was used, and the basic eye bolt and knurled nut keep it all secured.
