Making a wacky daxophone! #3: Day 2

03-03-2010 01:33 AM by Justin | 2 comments »

I actually had a lot of actual work to do today(50 new display shelves needed by Monday) so I didn’t get into making the tongues as I had wanted. But now I have a finished Soundbox! I sanded to 600, gave it a tripoli buff and finished with caranuba wax. I did all the buffing with a dremel so it was a pain in the butt. Gonna buy some 6” wheels and do it again tomorrow. I’m really happy with the way the lacewood turned out.I decided to test the pickups with a ruler to s...

The Wood Whisperer Guild

08-04-2010 10:40 PM by Blayne | 2 comments »

I recently joined the Wood Whisperer Guild. If you’re unfamiliar with the Guild, it is a subscription-based group run by Marc Spagnuolo. They do “Guild Builds” three times a year (spring, summer, fall), and the current build is a chest of drawers. Marc posts videos detailing specific parts of the build, and he also has live Q&A and demos for the Guild members. Not quite like being in someone’s shop, but pretty close. I’m almost ready to begin on the ch...

The Rocking Alligator #2: Getting Wood

07-17-2011 12:11 AM by BentheViking | 2 comments »

So over the past few weeks I have been looking into trying to figure out what kind of wood I wanted. All I could really afford was pine. I looked at the box stores and as much as loved clear or select pine it was way too expensive. Even the whitewood pine was gonna be a bit pricey. So I figured I’d head down to the lumber yard and get a better choice there. I managed to get two 1×8x12s of relatively clear #2 Common pine and two 2×6x8 of relatively clear #3 Common spruce. I jus...

Creativity and Tradition #1: Legacy

12-28-2012 05:08 PM by EulerPhi | 2 comments »

12-28-2012My Father was an amazing “creationist”, he could build anything and it was amazing to watch him work. He worked with wood, steel, and earth to build what he liked from toys, to his home in Northern Michigan. As I grew up, he would build us toys, a Doll House for my sisters (with electricity) and construction equipment for me and my brother. As my Father grew older and finally finished his home, he retired and started building very detailed toys and gave them as gifts ...

trip to my favorite sawmill

08-22-2013 01:24 PM by MattNC | 2 comments »

Here are older pics from a trip to my favorite sawmill around raleigh, which is Charles Hollands place near jordan lake. The slab leaning against the trailer magically made its way home even though I had no idea what to do with it. Its around 9’ long and was from the center of the crotch of a walnut tree and its 2” thick. The stack of logs are cherry, and the stacks of lumber are walnut.
