Got a bunch done this weekend on getting the joints cut out and rough fitting the “pie” together. Struggled a bit with the mortises, and although they fit snuggly, they were not as square as I would have liked. Having a decent set of chisels, which I bought after my joint experiment really helped out, but I still lack the experience (I know it will come…that’s why I’m doing this). Once I was satisfied with the joints and the rough fit, I glued up the end pie...
Hi! everyone, I just wanted to give you an update, on how the prayers and the medicines are working. The surgeon that put me on the medication to expand the arteries and blood vessels in my legs wanted me to start walking as far as possible once a week. To get an idea as to how the medication is working. The first day that I started on the medication, I could make it one and two thirds trips at a fast pace, the length of my driveway before my legs just hurt so bad, I could hardly walk. One...

I think I am safe in saying I’ll keep my foot out of my mouth with this one. LOLLooking HVLP spraying and not sure which way to go. I have a 5 hp air compressor and thought about buying a HVLP gun, or is the Earlex 5000 a better choice? I do not have any spray experiance except the old spray can. I want to be able to spray water, oli and schellac.
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the warm welcome!!

I have a server in my basement hooked-up to the television, and a wireless keyboard and mouse I use on a coffee table when I need to access it directly. I get tired of looking at the PC bits sitting on the table and leaning-over to use them, so I’ve decided to build a lift coffee table to hide the parts and bring them closer to me when I need them. I took the following design from a book I have, but modified it for a different lifting mechanism and some general dimension changes (alon...
Before proceeding with more videos on the Leigh jigs, I want to share some cool stuff that has made my life easier when using my old D4 dovetail jig: Excellent guide bushings, and the superb Vacuum & Router Support. In my mind, they are a must-have for my jig. Highly recommended! From my blog : This episode shows the Leigh optional accessories for the dovetail jigs “…that make your woodworking projects even more satisfying…” These include the Universal Guide System (UGS), and the Va...
It was finally time to close up the body of the guitar. Yet another fun clamping operation.Things went reasonably well. The stage is now set for routing the channels for the binding and purfling. Take a look at the post for details. Thanks for reading!
I started cutting down the rough cut lumber that I have. I joined and planned some of it too. For now I am using a 4” aluminum dryer hose to connect the dust collector to the cyclone lid, it works great I might just keep it like that. The hose was only $10 bucks. Here are some pics.
