Cigar Box Guitar #1: Good Start

09-30-2012 09:59 PM by PittsburghTim | 1 comment »

I recently purchased a book called the Handmade Music Factory by Mike Orr. I had seen another book on the topic reviewed here several weeks ago and that stirred my interest. I haven’t played an instrument since I was forced to take several years of piano lessons by my mom some 35 years ago, but I just finished to large coffee table projects and wanted something new to start. I read through the book and decided to start with a three-string, fretless guitar, I stopped at the local c...

You Design It, I Build It project #4: And the winner is.....

08-13-2012 06:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

After a tough fight between the hall table and the bench, the hall table has won. At the beginning the bench took a quick lead, but then failed to hold it as the hall table easily passed it. Now it is on to the next stage, the actual design of it. I will be figuring out how I will do this and then post more about the next step. Thank you to all who participated so far and please keep on participating.

Oak Boat Bed #2: The Headboard

02-21-2012 12:04 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

When coming up with a design for the boats headboard for the first time I wanted more like a bookcase headboard. Something more then just a flat headboard. What I did was take a simple bookcase headboard, one like I’d use on a captain’s bed, and tilt it back a little. To give it more of a nautical look, I cut portholes across the top and then some larger ones in the sides.
