The Craftsman's Path #34: Dreadnought Guitar - Bracing the top

2200 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

There was more bracing work to do on the guitar. This time a more complex operation on the underside of the guitar top. I found an alternative to the wooden dowel go-bars that I used last time. Take a look at the latest post to see the operation. Thanks for reading!

I am, however slowly it might be, coming to the realization that I make wood scraps. I know, you are probably thinking, “So what, we all do.” Well, that’s just my point. I make mostly wood scraps. Thinking of all the projects I’ve built there are more wood scraps than actual projects. I know I’ve disposed of 5 or 6 – 55 gal. trash cans full of wood scraps that I didn’t think I could possibly make anything out of. That’s a conservative esti...

Ladies Night

2201 days ago by brunob | 10 comments »

It all started with a woman at church asking me if I could help her fix up a doll house she bought at an action. She came to my shop one evening and brought a friend. They were interested in the tools and some of the projects I have around the shop so I asked if they’d like to try some. Bottom lins is the doll house is finished and I now have several women who come to the shop two at a time and I have a waiting list of others who are interested. We feature a new machine every evening an...

Bookcase Challenge04 #1: Bookcase entry – Challenge04

2201 days ago by lightweightladylefty | 8 comments »

I had already started working on the design for this bookcase when I became aware of this contest. Realizing that my built-in application (designed to conceal ductwork) was quite different from the needs of most people, I slightly redesigned the crown to make it a free-standing bookcase (although, for the sake of safety, I would still attach it to a wall if I were to place this one in my home). The close-up of the crown shows the area for built-in lighting which is simply a 36” fluore...

Plans and Drawings #1: Combination Loft

2201 days ago by Chris Davis | 7 comments »

I had a request or two on how I made the Combination Loft. I was going to scan my notes and email them to the LJ but thought why not share with everyone. First remember these were intended for me so they may not make since to anyone else. I am posting it here so there can be dialogue back and forth. I’ve built this version two times. One time in white and the other time in the pine version. This is some dimensions to show the side panels Here are some more overall dimensions. ...

pics for routing tip (REVISED)

2201 days ago by dlcarver | 10 comments »

Here is a tip for some jocks who have to do a lot of routing on smaller and quick projects, especially if they are making small signs. This tip can be used on larger projects as well with a little adaptation. I learned of this from a little old sign maker about 30 years ago. I met him at a craft show…. I was carving and he was making signs. He was routing signs on the table top without using any clamps. I thought, “Boy is that cool or what? ” What he did was take two strips...

Modern Modular Bookcase

2202 days ago by bfd | 9 comments »

This is my entry for the bookcase challenge. I designed my bookcase to be modular and have simple modern lines. I eliminated the “top” and “bottom” to give the piece an open feel and to reinforce the feeling that the shelves are “floating”. The case or “shroud” is 1-1/2” thick and made up of (2) 3/4” qtr sawn ash plywood or veneered mdf. The sides would be clear coated to contrast with the walnut shelves. The back would be...
