    I am venturing on a new project. Simmy from UK, former member of the late Scale Model Horse Drawn Vehicles forum, sent me a CD with tuns of photos of two different Chinese carts. He built one in 1/8th scale. I found them intriguing and decided to see if I can build one. I will be building in 1/12th. I thought that this would be an easy project, now I could build with my trembling hands. While I now have my doubts I am continuing on. I will post the build as I go.

    Finally got around to making a 1:8 scale chair for the roll top desk. Took me three attempts to get it right, going through each hole six times with beige thread. Cheers, Guy

    Thanks for the compliments Bill, I think trying to figure out how to do it is more fun than actually doing it much of the time. It took me several attempts just to figure pout the template for drill int the segment holes. Once I got the fixture set up drilling the holes was just taking the time to drill all 500 + holes. The biggest problem was keeping the holes aligned as the tiny drill wanted to wander when it hit hard grain. I solved much of this by starting the hole with a center drill first. I can only work about an hour or so each day so it took me much of a week to drill all the holes. Same to for turning own the nail heads. My lathe is set up for that and locked in position. so ever once in a while when I need something to do I set down at the lathe and turn nails. I'm about 1/3 of the way in finishing the nails.

    Developing the tires. On the original the tire is made up of six individual sections and nailed on to the wheel. to make it simpler for me I rolled and silver soldered the joint of a main tire. I then made each individual section which I some soldered and riveted in place. Each of the cleats were filled out to look rough. This is the point I am on th is project.

    Amazing that those who are shown how to work with METRIC, just find it so much easier. Seems to be a problem at the government level about implementing Metric, must be somebody who has a special interest ( think making lots of money ) by keeping that antiquated MONGREL measurement. The stupid thing is the the American Dollar is pure metric, 100 cents per dollar, 100 centimeters per metre, even use the same abbreviation - CENT - wow, how close is that, eh ? Even the old mongrel inch has been metricated, think 1000 thousands of an inch marked on a Micrometer, even use that word METER again.

    Hey! My name is Karen, and I am the sister of the late Marcia Backstrom. Marcia was a substantial talent in the miniature doll world with her original dolls still being displayed in private collections and museums around the world! Maybe some of you remember her work! Until I am more technically proficient as to be able to add pictures, you can google her name to see some of her fantastic character dolls. In the meantime, I would love to hear from those of you who knew my sister. Knowing Marcia, there are some funny stories out there!!

    I had problems locating nails that would work for the wheel sides. I had this antique 1/4 # box wire nails and decided to use them. I have to turn the diameter of the nails down and true them up; all 594 + of them. I set up a collet in my lathe and turned them.

    A template was made to mark the hole locations on each segment. A fixture had to be designed to drill the holes accurately. There are 33 holes per segment making a total 297 holes in each wheel. There is a difference in hole spacing between segments so each segment needed to be marked separately but all holes in each line had had to been the same circumference.

    Next came turning the hubs. I used An old Magnolia limb I had laying around under my work bench in the garage, for years. I drilled a couple sections and pressed in a long piece of brass tube to mount it in the lathe. I later turned the metal boxes from hex stock steel for the front of the hub (AKA nave in Europe). These will be drilled of the spokes later.

    Start on building the wheels. I no longer have a large enough lathe to turn the wheels so I had an adaptor plate made to mount on my rotary table of my Sherline mill. The wheels are made up of 9 segments. That = 40º triangles glued together . These were both mounted on the plate with double stick tape and cut to outside and inside diameters with a mill cutter.

    The support piece at the back of my Klein duplicator is made from white/natural colored UHMW plastic, it is not delrin. Not that it matters as they are both slippery plastics. But they do have other properties that are different.

    PetrikNZ, I know you are more interested in fully upholstered pieces, but I would like to offer one more detail to Elga’s webbing support in her fabulous chair. Even fully upholstered pieces have supports. I took a class from Elga at Guild School and created a wonderful chair at her instruction. I did manage to create a more narrow webbing strap by weaving the tape myself. I used a Greta loom and the technique learned at another Guild School class with Bonni Backe. It really is a most wonderful week! Martha in Louisiana

    My workbench still has several unfinished projects on it: one unfinished window for Aragon, the beginning of a new room box, the roof of my Greene & Greene bungalow, et al. But, I have finished both of my Guild School projects: a peacock done in Johannes Landman’s class and turned birdhouses done in Iulia Chin Lee’s class. It was a great week!

    Amazing and wonderfully fun. I bet you are having a blast. So what is more fun for you, figuring out how to set it up and do it or actually doing it? Meaning drilling all those holes, turning all those nails? Great to see the excitement of a new project. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello to everybody After some months of silence, this is my new miniature creation. A new shop windows with a showroom of bathrooms and accessories. As always the façade follows the art-nouveau style, with an important sgraffito in two colours, stone arches and a sinuous baseboard also made of stone. the sidewall is made with a new piece of concrete. It reproduces the original design which Antonio Gaudí made for the first time in Batlló House. This house is in Barcelona, in Passeig de Gràcia (one of the most important Barcelona's avenue), and this design was also used for the pavement of this avenue, but made of green-grey concrete (those in Batlló house were of enameled ceramic).

    The delrin piece that supports the cutter arm can be adjusted up/down. I don't think you'll have to replace anything. I am also not using an original-equipment cutter - plus I have it installed with the cutting point rotated ever so slightly off of vertical (I can see it but I'm reluctant to change it because I've made some parts and I want the others to match). Either of those things could easily account for my issue, which is somewhere on the order of about 0.012" (best guess). I guess what I'm pointing out is that each time you take out your cutter to sharpen it, or change cutters the height could change ever so slightly so adjusting the delrin is more practical than changing things out for a permanent set-up. I'm just setting a thin brass shim atop the delrin and that's working fine. I'm not motivated to tear it apart and diddle with the height right now in the middle of my run of spindles. EDIT: After re-reading Karin's post, I now realize that she's talking about matching the height on a macro level and I was talking about the micro-fine adjustments. I recommend 0.015" thick brass for the template. I have a bunch of blanks that I got from either Tom Walden or Pete Boorum and they are all about 0.015" (OK, maybe some are 0.016"). I think those will last forever. If they were thicker, it would be harder to cut them with the jeweler's saw. I have some unrelated 0.010" thick brass and it is *way* too flimsy to use for the template.

    I love the Guild School experience; if you want to learn from some of the finest instructors in 2019, the classes that are full are noted on the website now. Students who pre-registered, should begin receiving notification of their classes! It is a wonderful week, where you are only concentrating on making minis and being with people who also enjoy mini-merry-making events! This is your opportunity to learn from a Master Miniaturists and learn and perfect a new skill!

    The lathes.... Unimat SLs, etc. These are those mostly green machines that had 2 round bars acting as a bed that millions like me lusted over as kids at the local hobby shop. They had a wonderful brochure that showed they could do anything with the right accessories. In a sense they were a table top Shop Smith. Basicly my opinion on machines that can do everything is they do none of it well. These were also prominently featured in all kinds of projects shown in the magazines of the day and were super popular. They almost seem to have a cult following today based on the prices, in a sense it is a little like the muscle cars today but a lot less money. Guys that always wanted one now can afford to have one and they lust after all the accessories. What I didn’t like about them was the tolorences are sloppy, the center height is low, they are a pain to clean the scarf out of and the carriage. Now this is my number one and two complaints about these and these and both apply at all models of Unimats and Sherlines! The carriage is not easily removable and is controlled by a hand wheel on the right end of the bed. The lathe must be mounted up high or at the edge of the bench to leave room for your hand. The removable feature is so you can do hand turning without all this carriage stuff in the way. The other feature I don’t like is it screw barrel tailstock these lathes have. Your hands get tired turning that handwheel while peck drilling tiny holes. Unimat 3, These were the much later often white lathes with cast iron beds. The tolorences were much better as were just about everything however my big 2 complaints still exist. Sherline, These are by far the best when it comes to overall quality, looks, fit & finish, support, etc. They also have a matching milling machine that takes many of the same accessories. I should also mention that both Jerry and I have recived awards by the Joe Martin Foundation which is the parent of Sherline. Thank You! Taig, This is what I use most of the time. I think I even wrote the review in the Scale Cabinetmaker nearly 40 years ago. But the version I use is not an out of the box Taig, it has some crucial modifications. For years the Taig was not sold as a ready to run out of the box. The motors offered over the years changed. I like those I think 1660 rpm ones he was selling for $20 ages ago. They were super smooth and quiet. I don’t like the DC motors and changing speeds with the belt takes seconds and is easy. The two modifications I do are first a collect nose to take the WW style collets which Sherline makes and I use. While Taig makes a WW spindle the collet is too close to the front of the headstock not giving room for your hands and blocking your vision. I machine one of Taigs blank arbors and turn down a Sherline draw bar that puts the front of the collet about 1 1/4” out in front of the headstock. I also use the Sherline chucks, especially the 4 jaw universal, with an adaptor ring. The spindle threads are same size but the Taig is longer. The Sherline chucks have much smaller jaws and are therefore safer. The other modification I make it a woodworking style Tee rest. I started this ages ago by drilling and tapping holes in the bed and mounting a shortened Unimat 3 tee rest. I have since made my own patterned after that. Now days both Lee Vally and Taig offer a tee rest that fits without modifying the lathe. I just prefer mine. A key to this is being able to remove the carriage instantly, this take about 5 seconds. A word on the carriage, it operates on a gear and rack hence no lead screw and therefor no handwheel at the right end of the bed. It allows for much faster travel of the tool over the work giving you much better control of you cutting speeds. It is much easier to like light cuts. This feature along with Taigs lever operated tail stock makes drilling and turning small parts lightening fast. Some parts I can do faster than CNC. The bearings on the Taig are great, I have never worn any of the out! The alinement or the tailstock could be better. Anyway, those are my basic feelings on little lathes.....

    Bill There is good news and bad news. The bad news, is that the Sherline adaptor as from the factory, is a real pain to adjust. In fact, I can not remember if I have ever been able to adjust a stock one to my satisfaction. The good news is that it offers a solution unavailable from others. I currently modify and adjust the adaptor as follows. (1) I first adjust the headstock for alignment per Sherlines instructions. (2) I then machine two small diameter work pieces to a very sharp pencil point per attached photo. (3) I next replace the adjustment screws with 5mmx .80 hex head bolts and lock washers from the local hardware store. The thread is retapped slightly larger to 5mm and the adjustment holes are also slightly enlarged. This eliminates the troublesome allen wrench tightening routine allowing the use of a much easier standard ignition wrench. (4) adjustment can now be done by tightening the bolts slightly against the lock washers providing tension on the front plate. The plate can now be tapped in any direction until the two points align under optics per attached photo. Alternate between bolts tightening each slightly until tight and recheck alignment. The alignment will depend on the accuracy of your drill chuck through out its range. An alternative is Sherlines tailstock WW collet adaptor if you have a set of WW collets. Jerry Kieffer

    One more row of flooring to lay in, and then the spots along the two walls to fill in. One long and one short section of wainscotting are painted but they won't be permanently installed until the floor is completely finished. The flooring is a bit of a challenge, as my little mitre box is not as accurate in it's cuts as I anticipated it would be, the aluminum channels' 45 degree slots wear open wider with use creating a little sloppyness in cuts, and that small amount is enough to throw accuracy off, so I've had to compensate a little to get the leading edges of each section straight across with a sanding block, but doing that slightly changes angles and the next row winds up with slight fitment variations that need further compensation to fix. I also should have done the floor by itself first and then cut the finished square to a size that evens up everything left to right so there would be no need for half width pieces etc to fill in. So far though it's pretty accurate and no big issues, but it would have been easier doing the floor alone first, as well as have more open room to work on it free of confines of the walls. I also would have had an easier time with the wainscotting had I routed the walls where it goes just 1/16" to inset it slightly below the door frames, I've done both of these on my bathroom box and sort of forgot to do that with this one, though I routed out the door openings part way into the plywood to inset the doors.

    I have worked with PMC silver and find it very clay like as in pottery clay. I bought bronze and i have a larger beehive kiln to try it out as you have to cook it in charcoal. Has anyone tried this? My goal is to turn a piece and decorate with silver metal clay and see how it goes! Love sculpting and mold making/casting.

    I'm reposting my Guild School Projects to this thread as well. Thanks Missy - I thought we should do that, but got sidetracked. I've completed my Peacock in oil from Johannes Landman's 36 hour class. Original was by Edwin John Alexander c 1900. I also completed 2 turned birdhouses in Iulia Chin Lee's 12 hour lathe class. One is Cherry and Padauk, the other is Padauk and American Holly. Loved both classes and learned so much. Both teachers were excellent! Martha in Louisiana

    Mesouth, your Painting from Johannes class at Guild School is exquisite! And of course, I like the little birdhouses! I know that we all create wonderful miniatures, but deep in my soul, I think of paintings as one of the top of the artistic endeavors of our artistic community! I did spend some hours yesterday and today at the lathe. I am now able to turn the needlework stand uprights segments in about in the range of 75 to 90 minutes after I have turned one end to a length of .600 and diameter of .3125 so it fits into the collet. I think at the beginning of my 3rd summer of practice I am finally to the place where I want to be, to turn with some measured, confidence. They are not perfect; but my skills have definitely improved. Now I am working on using my incredible tapered indexing jig, that Mr. Robertson created for the class (and students could purchase), and then the fun part of turning the beautiful details will be the final stage for the turnings.... after that is assembly and finish. I have no idea where I stored my gravers though... they were not under my table with all the rest of my turning tools. <uh oh...> Do we have any other Guild Students who can share some photos of your projects on the Forum? There is so much to miss when you are not able to go to Guild School, and as another year passes, I know I miss seeing everyone and sharing the joy of the best week of the year, but I miss seeing the results of everyone on Friday evening... so I am waiting to see the official photos! If I ever get my Guild School & Guild Study classes finished, I will post pictures!

    well... totally ridiculous and insanely ambitious... this engineers dream table; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ_AwFSWIPU here's a little more explanation Of course this is way above my head and just too hard to reproduce in 1:12. There are a few mechanisms though, that come close to the same circular expanding feature, but those don't stow the leaves that increase the size of the top. And that's what actually makes it so attractive to me. And is so useful in miniature too. That way you can 'play' with it without having a bunch of loose table tops you need to put in. A feature that made me make this table But a circular one is definitely on my to-dream-do-list

    Tamra, on my latch I glued nails into the holes and filed them flush with the latch's bottom surface and then just glued it to the table top. My table top was too thin to drill holes into it. If you are going to put petitpoint on top I would rivet the latch as nobody would see it once the petitpoint is inserted.

    In response to your request for more postings, here are some pics of a 1:8 scale roll-top desk. Constructed of Mahogany and Poplar because I already had these materials, but a tighter grain wood should have been used. Most difficult part to make was the tambour top. The drawers have dovetails but since they were made using an inverse cone cutter, they don't have the correct angle. I haven't started on the chair yet. Cheers, Guy

    Yes there is a little mortise and tenon in the center of the back edge. On this type of hinge there is a little sweet spot where it works perfectly but it is hard to find without binding. So what I did was make the holes in the middle floating hinge plate a little bit elongated this way it would open and the back edges of the table would clear each other and then it could be pushed it on the mortise.
