Building an Acoustic Guitar #2: The Neck, Shaping the Heel

921 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 7 comments »

My lovely wife spent her weekend watching the kids and provided me with nearly two full days of shop time. In the intervening days I’d decided I wanted to build one of the guitars from cherry. I have a rather large stockpile and had read somewhere that Martin made/makes a “sustainable” series out of cherry, so it can’t be all that bad an idea, right? I’ll just set aside one of the two maple blanks for later and replace it with a new cherry one. Another imp...

Building an Acoustic Guitar #1: Building an Acoustic Guitar

929 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 9 comments »

I’ve been rather busy with life the last couple years, but I’m finally back in the shop and up to no good again! Here’s what I’m up to for anyone who’s interested… A few years back I was conversing with a co-worker and fellow guitar player. Aware I was an amateur woodworker, he suggested I build a guitar. “Luthiery requires special tools and skills…training. Naw, I couldn’t do that,” I said. Google search. Fast forward to la...

Guitar 02 #2: Bracing, sides, and kerfing

1005 days ago by joseff | 1 comment »

I have not been back here at LJ for a while. Had some problems with the internet connection for a time and somehow got used to having no connection even after we got it back.Anyway, I just finished attaching the braces and the sides to the top. With this guitar, I also decided to try and make my own kerfed lining. These linings usually cost $2.44 each, from a supplier, and a classical guitar will need four pieces, a total of $9.76, shipping not included. Making my own cost me $3.50, plus ...

Guitar 02 #1: Top and rosette

1070 days ago by joseff | 5 comments »

Well, here is the start of my second guitar project. I imagined this second guitar before I even finished the first one. Outline of the top Marking the rosette channels. My method is a bit crude, although this one is better than the popsicle stick I used for the first guitar. A fellow LJ posted a project, a marking tool, that gave me an idea for a circle cutter. I will ask him if I could adapt his simple, yet beautiful design. Routed the channel using a small router planeTwenty-s...
