Hi everyone, finally I come back with a blog for a little project I been doing in my free time for the last 2 weeks. As it was bound to happen I think, having been a professional musician for nearly 20 years and now interested in woodworking as a hobby among some other things, finally bit the bullet and started building a CBG (cigar box guitar), and this is the short story, short because there really is not too much to tell as the build can be as simple or complicated as you want it to be....
This piece here is smaller and we are able to fit it in the blast cabinet. This is a lot nicer way to work, but man after a few days if this my neck gets a severe kink in it. The blast cabinet. After the red colored wood has been blasted. Now we need to shape the rough edges, sand, add the leg supports and glass supports.
Well, we were invited to be a part of an “By Invitation Only” showroom. It is called Rocky Mountain Design center, located in Evergreen Colorado right of I-70. This is a 25,000sg ft showroom which features all high end lodge type home furnishing, from all of the U.S as well as Tibet, India and Europe. Needless to say this is suppose to be some of the best of the best and we are so thrilled to be a part of it. Anyway we will be renting a 400sq ft space to feature our work, the...

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
Well if you have made it this far, why not go a little further and watch the conclusion of this chest. It has been a fun build so far for me. I hope it has been informative and somewhat enjoyable for you to watch as well. Now I know the video quality isnt the best. but As I go on it has gotten better….Now in this present day I have a new camera, lighting and it has helped a lot. Here are the final 3 videos of this chest build. Parts 6, 7, 8 Part 8 was pretty basic, the installation ...
The other day I posted a couple of projects where I used some reddish-white wood, that we around here call “Cedar.” I don’t know what the species name is, some say Western Red, some Say Eastern Red, so I don’t know for sure. I received enough interest on the wood type from commenters to the project and emails,, that I did some checking around, and I found a local source for this red/white cedar wood with the aromatic smell if anyone is interested in it. It would c...
I am new to real woodworking, but I have been doing some reading on what a proper wood shop should have, and thing one always seems to be a workbench. Which I do NOT have. I found the LumberJocks forum while searching for ‘plywood toolbox’, but that led me to the forums, where a number of you have been great about offering advice and encouragement. One in particular (Danny) lives within a reasonable drive and has his own sawmill! So I made the 2:20 trek. This was a great ...
Well, I’ve signed up for a woodworking class ‘til the end of the year and have decided to make a hope chest (and a couple of other little things). Tool Dad was kind enough to send plans for the Cedar Hope Chest he’s built and I have turned them into a Sketchup (first one I’ve tried). I think it’s looking pretty good so far, but any input would be appreciated – I’m fairly new to woodworking and would like to do the best job I can on this project. ...
Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.
