TRAIN CAR

 

TrainCar.1

Besides enjoying doing photography and visiting Historic places around my area, I do enjoy building small projects out in my wood shop just for the fun of doing it.

Since I am a retired Machinist and have worked in the trade for over 22 yrs. I still have working knowledge of how to use woodworking/plastic/steel machinery.  Building things like this is somewhat like working in the Machinist Trade, but not anywhere near as precise.

To make this, I just used my imagination, some wood that I have around the shop, a drill press, a table saw, a chop saw, and a Scroll Saw.  The wheels I did not machine.  They were ordered from a Internet site which can supply most of what you’d want.

It takes time to build this.  Measuring and cutting the wood pieces as precise as you can takes some patience that I don’t have a whole lot of.  I worked on this for about 2 weeks to get it like you see here.  I have to give it a paint job to make it look more real, instead of just plain wood.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

Thanks for stopping by.
