Building my first guitar #2: Test fitting the parts

09-27-2012 10:02 PM by daverose | 4 comments »

Got to work on my pine practice block this week. Did a test cut on the neck pocket and the pickup recesses to make sure my templates where up to snuff. I was going to use a template guide in my router but realized part way in that I couldn’t get the bit low enough to make a deep enough cut because the guide got in the way so off to Lee Valley to get a template cutter with the bearing on the base and I was off to the races. The neck fit pretty well but was a tiny bit loose near the ...

The Mayan end to the woodworking year.....

12-21-2012 08:53 PM by jbschutz | 8 comments »

The Mayan calendar may have been a tad off over all, but it would have been right on if it had predicted the end of my woodworking year. Yesterday, after clearing my driveway of 10 inches of fresh snow and delivering the snowblower to my neighbor, I slipped coming back across the street and broke my right ankle. So, daily forays to the shop/garage will be on hold for a bit. Getting around on crutches is about all I can handle right now. Too bad I don’t have some little projects to sand ...

New Lathe

01-19-2013 11:49 PM by MOJOE | 3 comments »

So my gal purchased a Rikon 70-050VS for my Christmas gift and I’ve been making shavings ever since. I’m learning each time I pick up the tools. Several folks told me “the lathe is the cheap part”, and man, they were right! I’m learning how to sharpen, and I’ve already decided I didn’t like my bowl gouge, so I reground the bevel! Anyway, I’ve finished a couple bottle stoppers and tried a couple bowls…... Later,joe Rough River Bir...

methods of work #9: Dining chair prototype with all wood parts dry assembled

02-15-2013 10:29 PM by Loren | 1 comment »

The geometry of all parts is established. I need to cut slots for wedged in the through tenons and after that the frame will be ready for glue-up and the seat and back splat for upholstery. The back legs are laminated into the curve. The seat is curved too and obviously the back splat with its lumbar curve is laminated. There was a lot of time invested in making forms for gluing up laminations but other than that no one step was terribly tedious.

As The Lathe Turns #17: The First Glueup Results

03-17-2013 03:02 AM by William | 18 comments »

Today has been a long day. As a matter fact, I can’t even believe I made it to the shop today. I couldn’t help myself, and will probably be paying for it in the morning, but those blanks I glued up yesterday were on my mind and driving me nuts.First of all, my wife has been working some crazy hours because her company was short handed. They finally hired someone though. She was able to come home early today. It’s been so crazy lately that I’ve almost felt like a single...

This thing is covered in glue and rust but I am making progress – what a mess!! Motor is going to repair shop – I don’t do electrical. Hoping its the start capacitor…all the other tools that came with this 100.00 purchase work fine but the bandsaw are not user friendly at all.
