Shop stuff #122: Making a new strop.

04-18-2018 01:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I have one. But it was just thrown together from scraps to test it out. Naturally it worked well, no surprise there, I now strop more than I “sharpen”. The problem with the original one is that it is too narrow for all my plane blades. So now that I am convinced of its usefulness, it’s time to build a proper one. I gave a bit of thought on a design that would be versatile for me and then made it. The first attempt was thwarted by bugs though, so I had to start over aga...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...
