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. I made this new hair gauge using brass strip 1/2 inch wide and about 2 inches long. I used a wood coffee stirer to space them apart about 1/16 of an inch and soldered a brass cleat along one edge on both sides. Then I cleaned it up with my benc...

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

01-13-2017 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Last month, I was thrown a bit off track by life's events. It happens to the best of us. We set our goals.We work to achieve them. And then as we are rolling right along . . . BAM! "Life" gets in the way. It is just part of living. As I get older, I am figuring out that the more resilient and flexible that I am, the easier things are. I have watched family and friends who are perhaps a little bit rigid in their thinking struggle because things aren't quite the same...

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

Cflux and Others Dust Collectors --JDS WOW

01-12-2017 05:11 PM by Redoak49 | 12 comments »

Several people have recently commented on the Laguna Dust Collectors. It is interesting as several different companies have marketed similar looking ones including Laguna, Jet, JDS and others. I was curious about them so I gathered the information for three of them to make a comparison of the 3 HP models. They all look pretty similar with a relatively short cone and mounted on wheels. Below is a picture of the three collectors. I also put together a table comparing the three machines. ...

Woodworking Skills & Stuff: #5: How to cut a tapered sliding dovetail with a router- the EASY way!

01-12-2017 04:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 7 comments »

Sliding dovetails are super strong, and they look better than dados. But a lot of woodworkers are intimidated by them. Not anymore! This method is easy, and the tapered form slides together MUCH better than a standard one! Subscribe to Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal- our free monthly digital magazine, and WIN FREE TOOLS!
