Thank you Dave,I have not seen this video yet,but I have seen the content,the model is made by John Andela who gave me the plans for my build and this video has been made by a guy who owns one the Ontario made by John Andela.Great progress, Zoly!
I don't know if you've seen this:
I did not even ask ,I think they are cherry,I don’t see why Dave could not get you them on any other wood.Zoly...mate...you are cheating bro!!!!! I thought it is your scratch building project...but you have ordered some laser cut parts. Don't worry, I will keep it secret. But carriages look great. What kind of wood they are made from? Can this be ordered from any species of wood?
Hello Nigel,thanks for visiting my build log.Looking good Zolly.Those carriages look pretty close to me,at least from the pics.
Regarding trimming the inner planking inside the ports.I never got satisfactory results using a file or sanding stick.The linings always got marked.I use a number 26 Scalpel blade (mounted in a handle) and work from the centre to each corner.Working from the outside and with practice you can flex the blade slighty and trim the planking flush without even touching the lining.Brand new blade a must and replace it the second the edge starts to dull.
