Usually I used just one of those square like things… Been trying to keep these somewhat organized, but…also need to sharpen a few up.. But these were in the way…that mallet off to the side? Is one I turned a while back. Tape measure? As long as I can read the numbers, fine, I use just one ta...

Used Tool Deals! Garage Sales, Salvage Stores and Auctions! #1: Today's Finds 6Feb2016

02-06-2016 11:06 PM by Dex378 | 3 comments »

I am always on the lookout for tools that I need (and always looking for tools I don’t need). But we all know that everything is so damn expensive these days. I have 4 kids so I can’t afford to run out and buy all my tools new. I try and hit yard sales, garage sales and salvage stores when I can. Most of the tools guys like us use are outdated junk to everyone else. The average homeowner owns a compound miter saw nowadays and wouldn’t know which end of a hand saw cuts the wo...

The dump truck #3: Axis

02-06-2016 07:14 PM by Dutchy | 6 comments »

To make the axis holes fully parallel I made a new jig. I had seen this jig here at LJ but can’t remember where. Sorry! My own conceived jig was much more time consuming. I make the hole 8,5mm over the full length. This makes that the 8mm. dowel can turn in the axis.

The dump truck #2: Leaf springs

02-06-2016 06:44 PM by Dutchy | 3 comments »

I had to made groves from 0,7 mm wide in the springs. I don’t have tools to do this and that’s why I made the springs out of more pieces. I also wanted black springs and therefor I used european oak. Ebonizing european oak is easy because it contains a lot of tannic acid.

Craftsman Side Table #9: Completed Table

02-06-2016 04:50 PM by DanMelander | 1 comment »

Completed table. I finished the walnut top with 7 coats of wipe on satin poly. I sanded the top after 4 coats with a 400 grit sanding sponge and sanded the top after coat 6 with a 1200 grit sanding sponge. The final surface is super smooth. Now on to table #2, which will be narrower and deeper with a smaller drawer.

A Tale of Two Guitars #3: Scarf Joint and Heel Block

02-06-2016 03:32 PM by fatandy2003 | 0 comments »

Started off by trimming up the neck blank and planning it square. **Just a note here: I couldn’t find anywhere that definitively instructed on the width of the neck blank. At the guitar joint, the neck is 2-1/8” wide and at the nut it is 1-3/4”. But, since the headstock is made from the same blank, most are 3” wide due to the widest part of the headstock. So we went with a 3” wide blank (however, my headstock will taper the opposite way as normal, so I could have glued up a thinner blan...
