Guitar Build Progress Report #4: August 20th Update

08-20-2010 07:33 PM by knotscott | 6 comments »

Here’s today’s update. Adding the shop-made curly maple veneer to the front of the headstock was a little tricky because it’s attached to an existing neck. My plan to rout down the face to accommodate the thickness of the veneer didn’t pan out as planned because the radius on the fretboard made it rock. Instead, I ended up using the flat edge and back of the “paddle blank” as a reference and sliced the cutout on the band saw. Once the veneer was in place an...

Extremely Average #273: A Drubbing

10-10-2010 05:57 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, Still waiting on my computer. Today my father and I went to the ISU vs. Utah game. My post tonight is entitled ‘A Drubbing’. I took a bunch of pictures with my iphone and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I know a lot of you are only interested in my woodworking posts, but I will say, there are CHEERLEADERS in one photo. Not that that would sway you. :-) Brian

Quest for a bigger TV #5: Doors and Drawers

10-22-2010 04:42 PM by JBfromMN | 1 comment »

With the center unit constructed it was on to building the drawers and doors. The drawers were just plain maple boxes with simple table saw cut locking corners. Then faced with the oak fronts. The doors rails and stiles are all cut on the router table with the new Bit set my Dad purchased for me last Christmas. The panels of the doors are all glued up solid oak and cut slightly smaller than the opening. My wife got a kick out of the name that Rockler has for the little rubber pieces ...

Owning your own business (post #8) Learning as you go.

11-04-2010 04:45 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

Good morning Lumberjocks. Owning your own business can be stressful sometimes. Specially when you learn new ways or things you should be do in owning your own business. Which in the last two or three months I have learned somethings the hard way. Which I won’t mention those things because I felt dumb enough and I already did different things so those problems won’t happen again. But at least I found out how to do some of these things within the first year of owning my busines...

Corner Inlay Table #2: Dry fit

11-26-2010 06:05 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

The first dry fit showed some work needed on the tenons. I first cut them a shade long, even though I thought I’d left some room for glue. SO – that means I didn’t get the mortises as deep as I’d planned. But it was just the smallest of adjustments there. I also found that the top of the legs and apron weren’t flush, so again a couple adjustments. But with that work done, and another dry fit to see how it’s starting to come together, it might end ...

Workshop Development #10: The new saw decision has been made. The winner is...

12-10-2010 08:56 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Okay so I did a lot of calling around on RAS’ in my price range, and to be blunt, they were TRASHED. Or too danged small for my needs. There was one old DeWalt 12” out there, that had the capacity, and everything was there, but it was so badly rusted it would take me a year and a ton of money to fix what was left to rot… So before it expired, my coupon and I went to Harbor Freight, where they had a stack of the #98194 12” Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser. Mind ...
