Solid Pine 2x12 Speaker Cabinet #2: Dry Fit & Glue-Up Pictures

1150 days ago by Michael J. Moore | 1 comment »

So I picked up 8 Jet Clamps then I returned 4, and ordered 4 Jorgensen Clamps. There was no shortage of shipping issues but after 3 returns, 2 delivery exceptions, and 6 different clamps going back and forth either because of missing parts or being damaged I finally got it all worked out and glued up my first speaker cabinet build. Here’s some eye candy… I used my new Woodpeckers Box Clamp to square it up as well.Fun stuff.

Luthiery Fun #5: Bending the Sides Part 2

1294 days ago by Chinitorama | 4 comments »

Here’s a shot of my bookmatched sides ready to be bent: Many luthiers shape an edge on each side with a compound curve before bending. This aids fitting the back and makes it a good idea to label everything before you get started. I’ll shape this edge after bending, but want to ensure the grain is as symmetrical as possible from bass to treble sides of the finished instrument.Bending begins at the waist and I’ve marked this location approximately 14” from what wil...

Luthiery Fun #4: Bending the Sides Part 1

1295 days ago by Chinitorama | 1 comment »

Still without a climate controlled work room, I’ll continue through the list of tasks that can be done without a dehumidifier. Next up is one of the steps that seems to mystify a lot of non-guitar types: side bending. There are many different approaches to this task ranging from hi-tech electric blankets to boiling. My method is based on conversations with luthier friends and guitar geek research. It’s also probably one of the simplest to set up without spending a ton on exp...

Luthiery Fun #3: Solera

1343 days ago by Chinitorama | 2 comments »

Probably the most important fixture in the guitar building process is the Solera. This jig is used to establish the arch in the guitar’s top as well as the necessary angle of the neck in relation to the top. Basically it’s a guitar-shaped board with sections carved away to facilitate various shaping and assembly processes. A shaped clamping caul more or less. I’ve read about these fixtures being made of mdf and solid wood but I chose 3/4 fir plywood. A previous attemp...
