Fiddle Case #1: I am tired of being out "blinged" at the fiddle jams

04-19-2012 04:11 PM by Wes Grimes | 11 comments »

Among my hobbies is playing fiddle at acoustic jams. What I have noticed when a bunch of fiddlers gather is that everyone “ohhs” and “ahhs” over the cases. I think this is because all of the fiddles look the same. Sure some have a prettier finish or grain than others, but none really jump out at you. There is always someone with a crocodile vintage case that wins the show. Those are hard to come by, so I thought I would try building a wooden case to try and keep ...

Arts and Crafts Coffee table project #2: Mortise and Tenon cutting and fitting

05-05-2012 11:50 PM by Cato | 0 comments »

I was not able to work on this project last weekend as it was a yard and garden work weekend. Today though I got back into the shop and began cutting the mortise and tenon joinery for the table base. I used my little woodpeckers rule stop to mark out the mortises and really like this little tool. I cut the mortises first with my plunge router and guide using a 1/4 inch upspiral bit. It did take me awhile to cut the mortises for the upper and lower rails, but everything I do in woo...

Making a Cello #5: The 'C' Ribs

07-21-2012 03:12 AM by PhiltheLuthier | 3 comments »

A lot can happen in 42 days, but when we’re talking about my cello it’s probably safer to say, little happens in 42 days! I have plenty of excuses but let’s forget about those and just get to the good news, I finally got a bending strap! So today I bent some ‘C’ ribs! (And glued one of them too). First up, in keeping with my light industry time is of the essence (wait? Didn’t I just slack for 42 days doing no work at all…) approach towards this ins...

Exercises in Artisanship #31: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 2

10-25-2012 09:40 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...
