Walnut Guitar #1: Tuner Head Inlay

09-14-2009 12:25 AM by interpim | 5 comments »

Well, I am in the process of my first attempt at a guitar, and I have decided to go with Walnut to build it out of. I am designing it somewhat similar to a Les Paul, but I am putting my little twists on it here and there. As they say, when it rains it pours. I guess that applies here as well. Because I attempted my first inlay today. It isn’t perfect and there are some spots that need a little filler but I think for my first attempt I did fairly well. I first sawed off a coupl...

Fly Fishing Rods #1: Starting my fly rod - finding materials including birch bark

09-13-2009 10:21 PM by Matt Vredenburg | 6 comments »

I am setting off to make my first fly rod (sorry, graphite not a bamboo rod – one thing at a time) with the goal of leveraging my years of woodworking by turning a unique grip. I am also making a rod for my older brother as well. I plan to make something similar to this one http://eclecticguy.com/2009/04/06/birch-bark-fly-rod-grip/ – birch bark grip with other laminated woods. My first chore is finding some birch bark and since I live in Arizona we have plenty of cactus (i.e., sa...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #12: Preparing Stock for Doors

09-13-2009 06:22 PM by Scarcraig01 | 5 comments »

I special ordered some 4/4 rough quarter sawn maple from my hardwood dealer for the doors and I picked it up Friday afternoon. I gave it a quick look at the dealers and it didn’t look so great but I thought it would hopefully be okay once I got to milling it. Well, no such luck, I’m pretty unhappy with it. It clearly is not FAS Select clear furniture grade lumber! This is a huge on going problem that I’ve been having! I’ve been all over the state trying to find a ...

Hand Tools Odyssey #1: What is Sharp?

09-13-2009 06:12 PM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Intro to Hand ToolsThree Saturdays ago, Kristin and I woke up early and headed down to good ol’ Cerritos Community College to start our new class, Woodworking with Hand Tools. Previously we have taken Basic Woodworking, Cabinet Making and a Furniture Lab together. I have also taken table making and a few more lab classes. I have a pretty good grip on basic furniture making and power tool use, but have been frustrated in my use of hand tools. Kristin is not a fan of huge power tools...

Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

09-13-2009 05:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

Warriors of Wood ….i have travailed the road that others could not see,and while on this road i carried pictures inside my head,where none could side-track me from my dreams of wood,just as wood and i have learned to deal with our times of age…. ….still working wood just as the wood works me in style,my character has many times been planed by the hand of wood,till even now there is the gnawing pain that pushes me faster,much to do as still counting the opportunities of project...
