Different techniques applied in making the woodtoy models #1: Engine for the 2CV

In this series I want to show what different techniques I use to make my models. I appreciate comments, especially if you come up with another proposal to achieve something.

In this first episode you can see how I made the engine (hood) of the 2CV. Enjoy and let me know what you think about it. 



very interesting dutch, thanks for sharing your process.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

Nice follow along Dutchy,

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Thanks for sharing, great details for a person to learn how you do it.

I always learn something when you go through your steps. Thanks for sharing!
Complex, but very methodical!

Love the process (and envy the fresh disc on the sander without any burning!)
Dutchy, that is a home run!   After you and I spoke, I reworked the front of the 2 CV using that technique.  Perfect!  No tear out at all.  Thanks for sharing the "improved" process.  I am sure that will make many craftisians very happy with the outcome.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
