Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #7: Hogging Out the Cavities

09-30-2015 09:31 AM by Dave G | 0 comments »

Hi all, I measured at least 10 times before making the cavity cuts. These need to be done before shaping so there is support for the tools – drill press and router. Before beginning the routs I had a little cleanup to do on the butt end of the through neck. The photo shows I back cut the tuner mount (this travel guitar is headless and has the tuner behind the bridge) to 20 degrees. This is so the tuners swing nominally level after tensioning the strings. If I didn’t ...

woodworking for money #1: first big commision

09-24-2015 05:05 PM by Gwjames | 15 comments »

So I started talking about this table over in the forum and decided maybe it should be a blog instead. So I have been trying to put my limited wood working knowledge to good use and start trying to sell things I build, or sell items that have not been built yet. I tried everything, posting on craigslist, posting to bookface friends and family, and then on a local for sale page on the bookface, and once I put tables on the for sale page I started getting emails like crazy. Everyone wanted a cu...

The Spidey Box

09-24-2015 01:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

This box I made for my son for a birthday gift. He has it now and was pretty thrilled with it. Now the shop is a disaster area as I have it torn apart to build a storage unit in one corner. The box was a fun build, and I really needed the practice. My meagre skills have waned. Over the last year I have not done any woodworking, concentrating instead on getting the shop built. This is the first project to come out of it. This turned out to be a long video so I split it into 2 part...

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 | 4 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...
