Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #6: Assembled....and a forest of clamps

08-07-2018 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ends came out of the clamps…..test fits….weren’t that great. Decided not to cut a groove across the ends, just a notch in the bottom panel will do. Had to use a bunch of clamps, to get this thing together….one corner wasn’t going to line up….either the groove was off, or the tongue was… This was just the start of the follies…needed to add a couple cauls, to pull the ends into square…. More clamps. one on each end..Then, no...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Don’t need the spurs….going with the grain….rotated these up, out of the way….long rods are held in the vise… Alw...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #2: Cutting parts for the frames

08-02-2018 10:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got that panel up of the clamps…and out of my way…. This is what the “Plan” looks like…but nothing is set in stone….have to adapt to what sizes I have on hand.. Made a “cut list” of sorts…it said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4×1-1/2×8-1/2” so those were milled.. It also said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4” x 1” x 8-1/2”.....so milled those up…..then things got….changed..List called for 4 pieces, t...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #1: A start up

08-01-2018 04:36 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have a large pile of Maple, and other hardwood scraps in the shop. Don’t really want to burn them….maybe a bit of resaw work….and wind up with a Frame & Panel Box/ Mini Chest? May make it similar to a Walnut & Cherry box I made a long while back. First, need to resaw some of the chunks down a bit.. Part of the stash. Bandsaw has a 1/4” blade on it.. While it is less stress on the saw, with the replacement motor, at least it is sharper than this ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...

Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a very busy day, yesterday…..so I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

Chest of Pine Drawers #7: A little assembly...

07-09-2018 04:06 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well…the cussing wasn’t quite at Drill Instructor level…..more like Squid level…..I made sure that fan was hauled to the shop, this time… And set on “HIGH”...goal was to get the case up onto the empty bench. Slide the loose side off the frames. Figures, had to turn the case around, had one frame that wanted to stick….with the frames still sitting there, I could attach the kickers…with a spot of glue and a screw at each end. I th...
