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...

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade) Water Base Pre-Stain Conditioner

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 46 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced produ...

Guitar-building #1: Cleaning up the guitar neck and body

03-16-2011 06:18 PM by kenstonge | 4 comments »

I’m new to Lumberjocks and this is my first post. It catches me in the middle of a project — a Les Paul Jr. electric guitar, which is being built as part of a class at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. I should finish it some time in April. Last week, I finished installing fretmarkers on the neck, which was built out of solid mahogany with an African ebony fingerboard. Complete pictures of the guitar in progress, from start to current, can be found on Flickr.

Rush Seated Bench #5: Finished Stool

03-10-2011 03:02 AM by woodworksbyjohn | 0 comments »

Here you have the finished project. Like everything most of us do, we look back at it and know there are skills we’ve learned and new things we’ve accomplished. Over-all I’m very pleased with this stool. It’s purpose is to provide a place in the entry to put on or take off your shoes. We have an antique buffet that is made of mahogany as well and this piece harmonizes quite well with it. I like the combination of the polished wood with the textural quality of ...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #6: Ornament evolution

03-07-2011 03:26 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

Started playing around with some… “new career options” for some of my unsold ornaments left over from this past Christmas. Between the finished ones, and nearly ready, there are several dozen after all. This container is mahogany. Grain match is very close to the lid/ornament. Turned and sanded, but still unfinished. I’d already intended to cut feet out of the hollow bottom, so I’m not worried about the hole that chipped out. But since sanding and getting ...
