I’m making the Jet Ski and 4 Wheeler

16 comments

While enjoying this build I took a few pictures and thought I’d share those here on the Forum. I use the plans as a guide and along the build I’ll change a feature or so depending on my situation.

I’m showing the main body clamp process of which I clamp piece 2 to 1 then let dry then add the next exterior piece in a similar fashion. I use mild clamp pressure to avoid my piece sliding out of position while letting the glue do its job.

After removing the clamps I’ll do sanding to blend in all edges of the assembled body. Now the build gets interesting as I can add featured items as the Steering Handlebars and such.

The Trailer frame pattern was a very good and basic build although the Rollers require a bit of patience and the aid of my Mini- Lathe for drilling was a plus.

 

 

 

 

Check back later for my build update !

I can add my photo’s of my wheels noe made from 5/8” thick hard Maple. The center was drilled using a 1” Forstner bit then I drilled my 4 accent hokes per wheel. Then cutting out the outside circle then to the Mini Lathe to true up and put my 3 tread grooves.

I should add the wood being used is predominately Poplar and Cherry. Here in this picture I locate and glue the Fenders. I don’t do this till I have the wheels as I want to make sure I have clearance between the two.

The two woods the Poplar and Cherry look perfect together.

The build has come together quite well and the application of a spray polyurethane finish is next. The wheels

will be removed from the Axles as to get a complete application.

This is looking very good and looks like a very rough and tumble toy to be played with or as a display model very happy to see this picture and makes me want to do more plan sets.

Nice to see these pictures this morning. Very nice job of the Jet Ski & 4 wheeler. And really like the two colors of wood you have used. The trailer with the small wheels looks awesome.
