Cello#4 back again

02-06-2011 01:34 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

High Folks, Its been a long time since I did the cello due to a mixture of dreadfull weather, work and family commitments but the journey continues.The back plate was glued up using fresh hide glue. It took about 2 hrs to accurately plane the edges square and get a good contact along the entire length of the joint. This joint is of absolute importance that it is done right, surface contact, glue consistency, etc. Normally on smaller instruments it is sufficient to rub the joint together and l...

More inexpensive shelving

02-05-2011 11:32 PM by devann | 2 comments »

I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...

The hunt for a table saw

So it was time to find a good used saw, or pony up the extra cash for something like the Grizzly G0715P. I am not that patient when it comes to waiting, especially when I have a list of projects waiting for the saw. Being that the Grizzly was backordered for quite a while, I started weighing my options. ...

02-05-2011 09:13 PM by shipwright | 0 comments »

Time to wind up this little blog about my venture into hand dyeing marquetry. Most of what’s been covered here so far is also covered in the blogs of “Cabinetree” and “Facets”. It appears here as a “one stop shop” for the initial stages of development. What remains is to list a few of the tips and tricks I’ve learned through experimentation, mistakes, etc. to give any of you who want to give this a try a head start. The first picture shows a ...
