Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #6: Glue Up

09-23-2015 11:12 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

I drilled and chopped out the wire passages for the pickups then glued the beast to the neck with Titebond III.Wire routes. It will weigh about 7#.I should be able to trim some weight as I shape it. Before gluing I cutout the body at the bandsaw with a 1/4” blade. I used the scrap as caul and I also had to put some tape on the top of the body to level it with the neck. The glue-up was done face down on a board and tapped into into alignment against the board while tightening th...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #2: Marking and mortising

09-10-2015 11:57 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Continuing on with my desk project… I milled all of the lumber roughly to size. I left everything a little oversized in case any internal stress warped the boards. Also, my planer blades were shot and leaving raised lines. For now I’m sticking with the HSS blades and got two sets on Amazon for a decent price. The new blades cut like butter. After a few days, I dimensioned all the parts for the legs and all the end pieces. Next, I marked all of the mortise locations. I ...

Found a vise to use..

09-08-2015 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Went to a Tractor Fest over the weekend. Amongst all the “goodies” I brought home, was a $10 Craftsman 7” wood working vise. Figured I could make some use out of it. The end of my bench is just about where all the “action” takes place, anyway. Not too often it is even cleared off.. Sooo, dug out some toys, and a big clamp. On the end of the bench, it is just a 2×4 as an End cap. It is also where the legs have a few bolts. Had to sit the...

Here are my finds for last week:2 – Irwin screwdrivers3 – Stanley No. 60 chiselsVaughan ball pein hammerVaughan soft face hammerWilton 4” viseAnd the coolest thing was the putty knife/spatula made by the Ontario Knife Company. It is very well made with a dovetailed walnut handle. I really like the old wood handled tools. They are fun to restore and make them look like new. And they work well. I got a great deal and everything you see was Made in America.

Second inlay keyhook #1: Chiseling newbie is a dull fellow.

08-16-2015 06:22 PM by Jared | 3 comments »

My second attempt at making a miscellaneous hanging system to store, keys, jewlery, or kitchen utensils. I’ve found that having a sharp chisel is very helpful with the process. After doing some research on chiseling, I tried drilling a few holes first, this made the chisel a fun tool to use. After the first attempt at chiseling l almost quit woodworking, just kidding.

The drill box #2: Working on a bottom for the box

08-15-2015 07:53 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, started off checking the layouts.. All four sides together and square? Check! Motivator in place? Check. trimmed the bottom panel. Trimmed two pieces of JEFF’S Maple, jointed the edges, and clamped them up in the now empty clamps. Then stowed them out of the way for awhile… Ok, back to the Oak stuff. Got the bottom panel all nice and square. Clamped it down to the bench, time to cut a rebate or four… Numbah Wun! took a bit to set it just right. ...
