Okay it’s late, and I am dripping sweat, so forget the pics tonight… But there has been more progress… My shop time, like always was very limited tonight, but I did get a great deal done. First things first, cleaned up glue drips I missed last night. What a pain! It is MUCH better to get these before they become giant globs on your work piece! Next order of business is to break out the flush trimming bit from the wall mounted bit set. New discovery, rocket scientist...
As you all recall, We have been granted the use of the Lexington Woodworker’s Guild for our LJ Picnic Event. I still would like to present them with something in appreciation of the gesture – but am not sure what – any ideas? I would also like to thank Rockler for stepping up and sponsoring us with some goodies that will be raffled between the LJ attendees. Thank you Rockler! This really presents the same great customer service, and positive experience I’ve b...
Hey all, Once again, no pictures but a lot of progress. This was a long weekend for me since my parents have been visiting. I made the best of it in the shop too. From Friday until today, I finished up building the base pieces and sanding them. I applied two coats of shellac yesterday to seal up the pine, and today I got the first coat of polyurethane on the base pieces. With another long weekend coming up, I hope to get a lot more done. I am hoping to get the second and final coat...
Not sure how many out there would be interested in making a Native American Flute, and if I understood how to work this site, I would be happy to guide you in how to make one.
With so many woodworking forums out there on the web, why should you join a local woodworking club? First, let me say that I am not in any way against forums. On the contrary, I belong to several which I visit almost every day and try to make a contribution whenever I can. Well, to start with, there is no better way to spend a couple of hours than to be around people who share the same interest. Woodworkers come from all walks of life and it is always fun to meet someone who’s professi...
the tremolo i felt (it was broken and not functioning) could be designed more vibrantly in sound texture. so it has been discarded. just the broken part. i hope to capture the out take air in the vox hummana stop to spin the vibrato paddle more smoothly and more easily replaced the unit was all glued together and the glues had become brittle it looked like the only place that they used glue. mostly screws and gravity. with solid fitting parts. the leathers were tacked on i will use a disovab...

So when we last left the shop, we had four sides to this “Poor Man’s Box”, but no top or bottomIt’s not much of a box without a top or bottom, ha ha ha! I guess I’ll have to try to add some!The whole reorganization thing is giving forth first fruits, in that I was easily able to lay my hands on some scrap Mahogany strips that I might be able to use…Now I just need some slots or channels (whatever those things are called) to fit them into. It’s Table S...
Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...
My wife wanted a daybed that we could put in one of our spare bedrooms for when we have more than one couple stay the night. We searched high and low, but couldn’t find anything that we liked. So, I downloaded Google SketchUp and started playing around. My wife and I both like the arts and crafts and shaker styles, so that’s more or less what I based it on. It’s not true to form, since I had a tight deadline on getting it done, so no mortise and tenon joints. I ...
