  • School buss

    I made a school bus for a Christmas present for my grandson, of course someone asked me to make them one. I cant seem to find the pattern. I wonder if anyone here can help. I have a ton of magazines, including Wood working and creative crafts and some books, but I just don't remember where I got the pattern. The bus is about 9" long, 4" high, 1 3/4" wide, with about 2" wheels, there are holes for windows and cams on the axels to make the people go up and down. thanks dan

    Sounds like a pattern I would like to try.

        Could you supply a pic of the one you made? It might jog a few memory cells here.

          I don't ever remember seeing that in a Fox chapel publication. Like Linda suggested a photo would be helpful.

            I have a fairly extensive index of woodworking magazines. The only school bus I find is in Woodworkers' Journal, December, 1998, pg 26. Hope that helps.

                That is an interesting looking project. I'd be interested on seeing the mechanism for the passenger's movements.

                    Nice ! I have never seen that one before. It is a simple design. What did the kids on the buss do? rotate or go up and down? or both?

                      I did find some of my old copies of some of the pieces, but not enough also, no identifying information where the plan came from. I am anxious to look at the public library, but do not know when it will open. It seems I have modified some dimensions on the pattern, I do this a lot. The people on the bus go up and down. There is a cam on the axel that moves the piece of wood up and down that the people sit on.

                        Sadly, after I get what I want the rest will be next winters firewood for my son. I might even convince Bruce to take 2 logs to the sawmill he volunteers at and slice some. Hmmm.

                        Well, you read my mind! I’m going to make the happy birthday out of a piece of thin wood and paint it her favorite color using the sparkling green unicorn spit. Mainly because if I mess it up I won’t ruin the basket. Sam is turning 11 and I don’t think the happy birthday will bother her. But it’s...

                        That looks like it will be beautiful when done!
                        What finish are you using? I have success with a spray glue if it is not an oil based finish.

                        One suggestion I've done is instead of cutting the Happy Birthday as part of the main piece, cut it from thin / contrasting wood and make it...

                        Thanks guys - both sites seem to have a much broader catalog range than clockparts.com and i am sure I'll find what I need from one of them.

                        Appreciate the help ...
