Toy gun with working trigger

01-14-2017 10:42 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

ukulele-a-thon #5: Completed but not finished

01-14-2017 12:19 PM by cfrance | 2 comments »

I made the fretboard out of some maple I salvaged from a kitchen cabinet doors I brought home from work. Marking the frets was easy with some calipers and a chart I found on the internet, and I used a piece of plywood as a straight edge with a pull saw I have. The nut and bridge were also made from the same piece of maple. I decided to bolt the neck for added strength and ran into another mistake. Some bracing was in the way of the nut. After a bit of chisel work I had the neck bolted to the ...

Shopmade Lutherie Tools #15: Improved bow hair gauge out of brass

01-13-2017 08:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

My first hair gauge [link] wasn’t quite what I wanted it to be so I kept an upgrade in the back of my head. The other night I spotted this string gauge [Below] and it inspired me to make something extremely similar to measure bow hair.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1813: Finished Sloth Pastel Drawing
