Another scale model build

After finishing the roll top desk, I needed something a little lighter on the brain and a lot lighter on the body so I decided to start another model build. The day wasn't very eventful as there was some milling of the rough cut stock that had to be done as well as some marking and layout of the base pieces. But then again, every build starts off like this with some boring pieces that look like a 6 year old made it and then after a few posts, the build starts to take shape. Stay tuned guys.....there's more to come.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Ice cream truck? Naw, I'm just too hot.

I'm pretty much convinced it's a doohockie thingamajig.. Remember, denial isn't a river in Egypt, it's an ice cream flavor.

Your projects are always an inspiration.

On a different note ... is that a roubo style bench with a back well? How do you like it, and if you were to make a new bench, would you include the well again? I am wavering on having a well in the bench I just started on.

... turning perfectly good wood into firewood every day ... :smile3:

Every adventure begins with that first step. Anxious to see what will roll off your assembly this time. Be safe.

Being someone who hates clutter and hates his shop in a mess and firmly believes that everything should have a place and everything should be in its place, I had a hard time wrapping my head around a tool well. However, I found that while working on a project, the tool well became more and more useful and I actually love it. If I were to do it again, I would definitely include the tool well. It's been extremely handy and I don't knock tools off the bench because they are safely in the well. My youtube channel has the entire bench build in a video series on the channel if you are interested.

I have a tool well in my bench. There are times when I wish it wasn't there, but most days it comes in really handy. Since mine is removable I may just redo the well so I have 2. 1 as a standard deep well and another that's flush with the top of the bench for days when the drop off just gets in the way. This may just solve the problem of my tool well becoming a full time junk collection port... My pencils, screwdrivers, rulers and so on usually end up buried in the sawdust and shavings in the well.
I'm nice and tidy in the kitchen and keep it in order most days, but the shop is a whole different story.

Someday I'm dragging everything out to the driveway and reorganizing AND getting all the extension cords up off the ground. Extensions make it tough to sweep up to keep things clean.. I'm probably going to go overhead with drop down cords..There's no electric on my side of the garage so everything is connected with heavy duty extensions for now ..sucks in more ways than one..

The frame looks a lot like the frame of the tow truck I just finished a while back. Haven't been on the forum much lately. I've been working on some outdoor projects around the house and down at my camp, I have been working some on a log skidder . I have all of it done but the wheels. They are the hardest part. For now the shop is rainy day work. I will be helping my daughter move as soon as the people living in the house she bought moves. We gave them a month to move but they are over that by 3 weeks now.
