Guitar 02 #2: Bracing, sides, and kerfing

11-21-2011 01:51 AM 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

09-17-2011 03:03 AM 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...

Guitar-building #3: Fretting the neck, routing the pocket

03-25-2011 02:41 PM by kenstonge | 8 comments »

After three months of once-a-week woodworking, my Les Paul Jr. project is finally starting to look like a guitar. I spent the first hour of my class installing frets on the guitar’s neck, a process that involves fretwire, a fretting hammer, a few clamps, flush-trimming pliers, some CA glue and a file. The basic process is to cut the fretwire — which had been radiused to 10 inches — for each fret, leaving an extra quarter- to half-inch on either side. Cutting the fretwire Next, I c...
