Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #2: Add Carbon Stiffeners to the Neck

09-01-2015 08:51 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

The plans I found recommend stiffening the travel guitar’s neck with carbon fiber. This makes sense because it lightens the neck slightly by substituting carbon for maple and because the travel guitar will want to have as thin a neck as possible without being weakened. This guitar will also use heavy jazz strings so some added stiffening will help the truss rod. Stewart MacDonald carries these. The plans suggested 3/16×1/4×18. I decided to orient the rod with long ...

So Lumber Jocks it is hey

01-11-2007 09:42 PM by Shawn | 11 comments »

My biggest regret…not taking highschool woodworking class seriously enough…my Jr High and Sr. High were both outfitted with GORGOUS tools, great wook selections, and amazing teachers who could have taught me so much…ode to the squandered time of my youth. A year and a half ago I bought a used table saw…it’s not very good…takes so long to set up square for a cut that I struggle with if I shoudn’t just buy a new one…then I remember I have a wife&...

First real Mortise Job

02-23-2007 04:54 AM by Obi | 30 comments »

Today I had the opportunity to use this new Mortising Jig on a Mission Style Table (pictures coming soon) where I did 24 mortises with the jig. Beats the hammer and chisel method, but i still want a mortising machine. I cut all the tenons with my table saw using this sled Since the picture was taken the sled has been modified with t-track, the narrow end fell off, and the groove in the “handle” had been widened to 3/4” from all the tenoning.

I just talked to Shelli DeCou

03-29-2007 04:27 AM by Karson | 4 comments »

I just talked to Shelli about their daughter Rachel. They have not been to any new Dr.s since the blood tests came back negative. They have an appt for next week. I didn’t ask her how mark was, so he will probably be mad thinking we are ignoring him. Serves him right. When I talked to her last week she said that after he got his OK to go back to work, he had a lot to get caught up on. So I’m guessing that shop time is at a premium and computer time is at a minimum.

"Sapience of Sagaciousness" --by RusticWoodArt

06-01-2007 01:54 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Sapience of Sagaciousness ....and so as the lightness of your fog escapes my parting willow lips, i am soon enough transformed into the awakened morning dew, where past participles of running brooks give meaning to a hidden eclipse, just as i now know the heart felt yearning of your imbue…. —-come now along my derived sweetened green of morning tea, as in this our aromatic moments of budded shivered foresights, we are passed along the rising rock walls of a turbulent grey se...

'This Old Crack House' #45: Are you sure your in the right class?

07-07-2007 02:00 PM by Dusty | 24 comments »

The only things that were keeping me from moving into “This Old Crack House” was $80,000, the estimated cost of the new addition, the sale of my existing house, approval to build on the vacant lot, and a design and plans that I could build from. Oh, and did I mention that I was headed for a strike and all indications were it would be a long one? No Problem, I thought to myself. However, it was a problem, but no more than anything else I had faced and tackled with the purchase an...

Boy Scout Woodworking Merit Badge #4: Last Episode - Rockler Store Visit

09-17-2007 09:23 PM by David | 13 comments »

I just posted this on my experimantal podcast and thought it would be a great way to complete my Boy Scout Woodworking Merit Badge series. How cool is this? As the counselor for the woodworking merit badge, I got to accompany our boys on their visit to the local Rockler Store – a woodworker’s dream come true! I did capture a short video clip – sorry it isn’t longer – I was distracted by all the tools! The Troop 728 Woodworking Merit Badge culminated with a vi...

I’ve decided that by far, this is my favorite style of homes, furniture and decor. A few months back, Laurie and I thought about moving out of our little starter home and was looking at older homes. After weighing the pros and cons of selling, buying and moving we decided to just stay where we’re at for a few years and move when the kids finally take flight out of the nest. The back of our house looks out onto common grounds and just beyond that is woods owned by the Army Corp ...
