Let's Repair a Broken Guitar! #3: Not Much to Report, Just a Couple on the Bench.

03-03-2014 05:51 PM by Dallas | 2 comments »

A few weeks ago I bought a pallet load of broken guitars. Most were real junk, you know the kind, Walmart, Costco, etc.In amongst the junk were a couple of Epiphone SG’s or at least enough parts thereof that I could build one.I found a decent straight neck, a body that was pretty good, a set of electronics and pickups and 6 matching tuners.I was really surprised that the neck didn’t have a broken headstock also but hey, I’ll take it! The worst part was a deep gouge about ...

Reviews - Tools #2: Router Depth Gauge

10-22-2007 01:24 PM by Dekker | 2 comments »

I got this tool last year as a freebie when I made an order from Rockler, and I just tossed it in my router table and promptly forgot about it. But now that I needed to do some precision router table work, I finally got a chance to use it, and so I’ll give a bit of a review. Though I’m sure there are other examples of the same concept, this one can be gotten from Rockler for $5.99. Though they illustrate the gauge being used directly on the router, it is also useful for ...

looking for shaper cutters

03-10-2008 11:27 PM by Kip | 2 comments »

I need some help locating a specific shaper cutter. I need a cutter that will cut a tongue and groove on an 11.25 degree bevel. I haven’t been able to find anybody that has this cutter in stock and I’m afraid I may have to have one built. Any suggetions?

Novice Rambling Quickie #4: Eureka!

05-21-2010 04:13 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 2 comments »

Okay, it’s not something I can gain a lot of prestige or money from, but it’s a personal Eureka moment that I had to struggle with on my own to understand. Being of scientific mind, I couldn’t let the issue lie from my last blog post on the shifting shades of my clock face. If the hypothesis in my blog post is out to lunch, I would love to discuss it here or on my blog site.

Ghosts of Christmas Future #2: too

08-26-2010 05:41 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

YES! More pictures of stuff I can’t show you yet! I had a fairly productive afternoon in the shop. (Once I walked away from the lathe that just doesn’t want to stay on. Quick call to customer service, a new (Free) switch is en route, and I’ll be turning again soon…) In the meantime, I got to tackle lots of milling and project prep… and a few other things I can’t share yet. – Oh the future blog fodder and project posts! But for now, yes, I am ano...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #8: Day 2 went well!

02-11-2011 06:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Hello Again, Well after a rough day at work I was really looking forward to today’s course…then I had to go back to work! But its okay I still made it to class early! I’m 2 for 2! Today Ryan demonstrated the bandsaw, disk and spindle sanders. Pretty cool, a huge bandsaw. I will have to measure it’s resaw capacity as it looked about 12 or 13 inches but very deep from the blade to the arm and a huge table. After the demo’s we picked our projects and began ...

Making Lathe Tools #3: Drilling Holes

11-06-2011 06:27 PM by Big Ben | 2 comments »

Yesterday I will to Home Depot and pick up some steel rods to make the chisels. 3/8”, ½” and 5/8”. When I got home I was looking at the 5/8” rod and decided to try just clamping the rod my bench and drilling a hole. I figured the worse that could happen would be that I need to cut off the damage piece and still have enough.Clamping rod to the bench top, loaded a 7/32” bit into my corded drill. The results were so so. It was painfully slow and I was not getting the depth I wanted. Then it was ...

Hollow Juniper Stump End Table #3: First curved glue lamination

12-23-2011 05:02 AM by junipercanyon | 2 comments »

Well, my first attempt with the spray bottle and torch from the previous post was successful for one board, but took way too much time and I have a few other projects going at the same time. So I decided to soak all my pieces in the bathtub overnight. The next evening I clamped all the boards together on the form and let dry overnight. After drying, I took off all the clamps, added a couple new holes to the form that I learned would have been nice to have on the dry fit. I rolled glue on e...
