Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #2: Add Carbon Stiffeners to the Neck

09-01-2015 08:51 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

The plans I found recommend stiffening the travel guitar’s neck with carbon fiber. This makes sense because it lightens the neck slightly by substituting carbon for maple and because the travel guitar will want to have as thin a neck as possible without being weakened. This guitar will also use heavy jazz strings so some added stiffening will help the truss rod. Stewart MacDonald carries these. The plans suggested 3/16×1/4×18. I decided to orient the rod with long ...

Industrial Scale Dust Collection #5: Removing old bags.

09-01-2015 03:37 PM by Mainiac Matt | 5 comments »

I mentioned previously that we were disappointed to discover that this bag house had been used in some kind of a stone crushing operation. We had hoped that the bags, which have a reputation for lasting quite a long time and can be washed and repaired, would be useable. But they are caked heavy with talcum powder fine stone dust. The equipment dealer is selling us replacement bags at wholesale cost, but we were concerned about the labor involved with exchanging 124 bags. We were also con...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1614: Uploading

09-01-2015 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am afraid today's post won't be too exciting. I am in the process of uploading nine videos, and being the impatient gal I am, I am doing them all at once. I figured I would give my new computer components a chance to spread their wings and see what they can do. So far, so good . . . However, it is not without taxing my system a bit. I had a couple of things to show you, but I think I will wait until tomorrow. Uploading photos may just send it over the edge. ;) Needles...

Jewelry box #2: Part 3

09-01-2015 09:09 AM by Kiwib0y | 1 comment »

You have to love rainy days as you get time to play!! ( to wet to work on the building site).Finished cutting and assembling some of the marquetry that I plan to use on the box.You may see on one piece of marquetry it has a clear film on it. I have used a product called Dura seal which people cover book covers with for protection to assemble the marquetry on as it has a sticky surface to it and holds the pieces in the right place then I put veneering tape on the opposite side and remove the D...

Building Two Baptismal Fonts #3: Finishing all the required models and templates

09-01-2015 02:06 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

Because of the unusual nature of the is project, I am spending more time than usual at the beginning with models and templates. It took a few days, but i got the bowl model to the right shape, adding joint compound and sanding it off three times until the shape fit the template. Tonight I began to work on templates for the shelf and the leg. First was to lay out the rounded triangle shelf with a compass, bevel angle, and straight edge. Then I laid out the leg template. In...

My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #4: Fitting the vises and finishing up

08-31-2015 11:04 PM by Lind | 0 comments »

After a lot of planing and a lot of sanding I arrived at the above, and was ready to fit the vises. (By the way, the white spots are filler used to seal and fill som nasty planing marks where the grain switched direction… Next time I’m buying better wood.) I wanted a leg vise, but wasn’t decided on whether I was going to go with a standard parallel guide with a pin or if I wanted to try a pinless design. I haven’t used a lot of benches but the pin just didn’t...
