Tool Gloat: Brass Purfling Channel Cutter

10-18-2018 10:18 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This is essentially a specialized cutting gauge that is used to cut a thin channel in the edge of a violin so that laminated purfling can be inserted. There are several types of these available, but I wanted this one made of brass. Even though I’m not even close to creating a violin, at least I have a tool to help spur me along on my journey. The tool above the cutter is a thin specialized chisel used to dig out the material after the cutter digs the path. This gives...

Ukulele #2: Banding and catchup

10-16-2018 07:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the banding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa banding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside banding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, which means I can continue on the neck and the bridge. I’m curr...

The amazing woodworking collection of Zhuhai, China

10-15-2018 09:46 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 12 comments »

Try to imagine yourself, as a hobbyist woodworker, being invited to a private tour accompanied by an Chinese government representative, in what appears to be the biggest, most expensive and most amazing woodworking collection. how big? 20 thousand square meters, which is about 200,000 square feet, equivalent to the size of an Walmart superstore. also, this collection is private, and therefor closed to the public. we were the only visitors at this giant warehouse.I have so much to say about t...

Uncovering My Shop - Finally

10-14-2018 03:09 AM by mot | 4 comments »

After years of house renovations and my shop behaving like a huge vortex of doom, sucking in every misplaced, displaced and disavowed object in the house, I have finally dug out my shop. We started renovating our main floor and kitchen almost 8 years ago. After two lawsuits and a heft insurance claim we finally got that reno done. My shop seemed to be the only place that my family members could figure out to put their crap. It became a disaster. It was so bad that looking at it just paraly...
