Shop stuff #85: 1964 Harmony Rocket

03-21-2017 07:55 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

This one needed a lot of work. Starting with getting the neck into a condition that is playable. It had been covered in a thick layer of epoxy and the frets, while still having a lot of meat, were in rough shape. View on YouTube

Adventures in Lutherie #10: Just a glue-up-du-jour

03-21-2017 07:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This poor cello had a slit in its face and part of its top had separated from the ribs. Today I felt confident enough to try repairing it. It is curing until I get to work tomorrow.

"New" Picture of Gustav Stickley

03-21-2017 02:39 AM by cicerojoe | 3 comments »

I have always been interested in history. Being from the Syracuse NY area, I am very familiar with Stickley. They make it in a suburb of Syracuse and I know people who work there. Anyway, my interest in history and woooworking kind ove “dovetailed” and I found a picture of Gustav Stickley that I have never seen on the internet. Anyway it is in a public domain book (because it is so old) and I posted it on my website at: http://www.cvalleystudio.com/index.php/2017/03/21/undisco...

Hidden figers joints? #3: Heading for a glue up

03-21-2017 02:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, wasn’t the plan to work on a Monday in the shop…just kind of happened… Thought I could just size two plywood panels to make the lid and the bottom panels….Marked one out, thinking I could use that to mark a second one, once the first was done….bandsaw cuts were a bit..wavy. Got out a plane to un-wavy them.. Got a Junior Jack plane to joint the edges straight. Checked the ends with a square….recut, and then joint THAT edge. Then go through ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #7: Preparing Cores and First Test Bagged Board

03-21-2017 02:08 AM by TungOil | 0 comments »

Now that all of the veneer material is ready it is time to prepare the baltic birch plywood cores. Each finished board consists of two 3/4” baltic birch center cores with a sapele veneer top and bottom. I first cut each 5’x5’ sheet roughly in half for easier handling. The cut is placed slightly off center to be sure I get the maximum number of strips from each piece of plywood. The top shelf on my parts cart is high enough to allow large parts to pass over my join...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #4: Crack Repairs and Top Reinforcement

03-21-2017 01:00 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 6 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the youtube video is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmXWgNwtXAg For this session I started to repair and reinforce some of the bigger issues with this guitar. All guitars experience a tremendous amount of strain and pressure on the neck joint at the body. A good way to counter this strain is to reinforce the top in the area just below the fingerboard. This guitar did not have any reinforcement in that area and thus it was necessary to add some stiffness ...

Workbench build #1: Part 1: The need for a new, cheap bench

03-20-2017 10:10 PM by RobNPHX | 0 comments »

It’s been about 6 months since I purchased a bench from a discount tool store, and I am in desperate need of something else. The bench is cheaply made, and even for having glued the joints prior to assembly, there is too much sway and movement for hand tool work. The included wooden vise is falling apart, and the wood is cracking. Yesterday, I started to build out a new bench, constructed of Douglas Fir 2×4’s. At less than $3 a board, I couldn’t beat the price. I w...

Along with stove to refurbish. when i did get to where I could get a few things done this is what happened. First thing I wanted to do was put up the door that i hadn’t last month to the back porch and since it was going to rain and already had a couple times on me. I knew it needed to go up. I k...
