High Track Dozer No 2

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


High Track Dozer No 2I just finished another high track dozer.
The tracks are Mahogany and the main body is Kauri, the cab and other dark timber is Walnut.
The model has been coated in tung oil.
This is a T & J model but I made the tracks a little different, the gripper is approx 1/16” wide mounted vertically and housed into the track link. I also added 4×3/32 dowels to each link as bolts. Making the tracks this way is very time consuming but in my opinion it is well worth the extra effort.

Vertical Holding Jig for Tablesaw

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Vertical Holding Jig for TablesawThis is a jig I made tonight to be able to safely and accurately slot the ends of some long vertical pieces. I had no other way to hold them safely.
This could be a tenon jig too. I was given a big cast iron tenon jig but it did not fit my tablesaw so I gave it back. This was made along those lines only I used maple plywood for the bulk to clamp to.It is made from 1/2” and 5/8” maple plywood and doweled and screwed and glued together. It is 4” wide x 8” long and 6” high with a vertical rail to insure the piece is held square. I left a 1/4” lip on the bottom for the piece to sit on so the edge is never dragged across the top of the saw. It rides totally on the jig like a sled!The only finish on it is wax on the bottom and side.
It worked good to put the 1/4” slots in the pieces of the next project. It held the parts real well and I felt comfortable using it that way.Cheers, Jim

South cabinets

Furnished content.

South cabinetsThese are the cabinets along the south wall I made. Silverware drawer, measuring cups/towels/hot pad holders. and a pull out drawer with utensils upright. Love the utensils not all jumbled in a drawer together. Pull out drawers for lids and dishes, and a final slim cabinet with sheets/pans, etc.

Beach and White Ash spiral Stair case

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beach and White Ash spiral Stair caseA while back I was hired by a couple to design and help build this spiral stair case. It turned out great. I only have one picture of it to share that was taken during the process of building it. They loved it and it turned out well. It was kept simple because no one had much money. But she cooked well and they were a great couple. The curved wood was cut into thin strips bundled up and thrown into the Kalamazoo River for a week to soften it up. Many strips were cut and several did not survive the bending. But we planned for that and it went well. Never needed more clamps than I did on this job.
