    Cool 1932 ford Toys and Joys plan build

    I build this Toys and Joys car [1932 Ford] way back but used pine and just was never happy with the way it came out so lets try it again with some oak.
    This is a very simple [old] plan so doesnít come with many details.
    Cut out the sides and frame then sand sand sand!!!


    Glue up for the hood, I donít have much of this really figured oak so will be facing some plywood to get it done.

    Here Iím taking off the masking tape and pattern for the frame really makes clean up easy.

    Picture of the parts.






    Will need to be playing with some spoke wheels in the near future me thinks. ]

    Itís coming together.

    I always love playing with the radiator or grill.
    I made sure I built it and glued it to the bonnet before I glued the hood to the frame as last time I forgot and made my work a lot harder.
    Itís so much easier to sand the grill and hood as one part with out the frame and other parts in the way.
    Here you can see the plywood heart of the hood.



    Then glue it all up and sand every thing flush.


    The oak has some nice grain to it but had to work around a lot a worm holes as you can see in the last picture.
    Running out of it but the spare tire should hide this bugger.

    Played around with making a fat steering wheel or two.
    Used the same steps I would for making a spoke wheel will try some smaller spokes [tooth picks] next go round.
    I started out making four but two didnít survive the operation.




    Please remember that on most of the things I show itís a first try so may not always turn out the best but you got to start some where, and just might spark an idea for some one.
    Then on with the roof and got a start on the wheel wells.
    Iíve been buying quality hole saw bits as I need a new size here lately and it has really saved me a ton a sanding on the insides of wheel wells and the like.
    And then you guessed it a ton a sanding on all the body parts.. ;-[


    The wheels are left overs from my last try at spoke wheels.
    May try to copy these but probable easier to just make a new set so they all match up right.
    Iíve got a lot a long narrow scraps of oak so I better start cutting and gluing it up for wheel blanks.


    Hereís a note on sanding disks and a problem Iíve been having.
    Over time I have had the pads on the bottom of my Ryobi and Harbor Freight sanders get where they wouldnít hold the pads any more because the sand paper would split apart and ware out the Hook and Lock Backing part of the sander.
    This was because I had been getting the sand paper that has cuts so it can work on more than one size sander but the cut areas would catch on something and would roll up and expose the Hook and Lock Backing of the sander and ware out the Hook and Lock Backing pad.
    So now I have two sanders that work just fine but canít hold any sand paper.
    The short of it.
    So what Iím trying to say is get the pads that are all in one and not cut up for use with more than one size sander.
    Donít get this if you want your sander to last.

    But try and find these as they wonít come apart and mess up the sander.

    Cool Building spoke wheels.

    Before I glue up the wheel wells I figured it would be a good idea to have the wheels so every thing lines up just right, so itís wheel making time again.
    Here is where I got all my info for making spoke wheels, I do it a little different but this will give you all the info needed, I watched it 10 or more times before it all started to come together.
    Thereís a hundred ways to do any thing but hereís whatís working for me right now for building spoke wheels.
    Drilling out the tires and rims.
    I left a 1/16 or so on the bottom to hold it all together as I drill out the spokes.

    I did flip it over and cut the rims out of the wood block.

    Hereís my marking jig for the spokes, has 60 angles but just need 30 for this project, so mark every other one.

    Marking center of rim.

    Simple jig to hold the rim as I drill the holes free hand.


    Marking which angles get a hole drilled,inside and out.


    Then on with the drilling and glue up.

    I really love drilling out all the odd angled holes for the tooth picks.


    I again used tooth picks for my spokes.
    I first drilled the out side rim with a size smaller drill bit than the tooth picks, made it easier to get the holes started and going in the right direction then used a drill bit that was tight for the tooth picks and taped them into place after gluing.
    Here are my hole saw drill bit sizes used to make this 2 7/8 wheel.
    Making the tire.
    I used a 3Ē and 2 1/8Ē hole saws to make the tire.
    Making the rim.
    I didnít drill all the way throw left about a 1/16Ē holding the rim together till all the spokes are glued up to hold it together.
    I used a 1ĒOD hole saw to cut out the center this will give me a 7/8 center hub.
    For the outer rim I used a 2 1/2ĒOD and a 1 3/4OD , leave the wood between the cuts for the rim.
    The rim is just a tad bigger than the tires inside hole so you can disk sand the rim down to fit in the tire for a great fit.
    I then used the hole saw bits larger that the hub to hog out the space between, from 1Ē to 1 3/4OD.
    I hope this will help others make some nice spoke wheels. #4 over and out.

    Thumbs up

    Got a little more done on the wheels.
    They're a long way from perfect but should get by for this project.

    Finished her up today.
    This was done with some nice figured oak but had to work around the cracks and worm holes to use it.
    IMG_6385.jpg
    It was finished with one coat of natural Danish oil and while still wet added a second wipe with walnut Danish oil to bring out the grain.
    I use the clear first to fill the places that would make blotches and helps hide any super glue I may have not sanded out.

    Your work is always first class and relatively so quickly.
    Top marks, sir.
    Cheers Peter
