Hi and welcome to my explorer guitar blog. This is a project I started 5 or 6 years ago when I found some mahogany in my fathers garage, I built the neck mostly by handtools, finished it with nitrocellulose laquer (which sadly has cracked in some places and is currently being stripped off). The neck is made of mahogany, a fretboard of indian rosewood, and the head veneer is also indian rosewood. The body will be made of mahogany, and the top is figured bubinga. I’ll post mor...
just a few pictures to update.. finished 3 more drawers and i’m now working on the front fascia’s and then i have the top to finish i guess. trying to carry the molding right through to the front of the project(keeping everything uniform i guess) <it’s coming slowly i just hope i can finish it off nicely though
I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...
getting close… finished the drawer fronts, so I’m nearly done with all cutting. Mostly left is sanding and the part I dread the most – finishing. That’ll be the make it or break it time.
progress is slow but i’m happy with how things are turning out. slowly but surely is the saying i think whereas haste makes waste and truthfully i’m discovering that(i destroyed a few pieces of boards already). anyway here it is..progress
i just finished hand cutting my dovetails on my jig(lol) and they seem to turn out pretty good so far. i have to f figure out a way now to install these cheap undermount slides from lee valley. sorry not much to show !a href=”http://s815.photobucket.com/albums/zz74/dub560/?action=view¤t=Picture257.jpg” target=”blank”>(dovetail joiints)! a href=”http://s815.photobucket.com/albums/zz74/dub560/?action=view¤t=Picture258.jpg” target=...
Another Demilune Table. This one has a crotch Mahogany Top, with solid Mahogany legs. The legs have a little detail, just to spice them up a bit. I used a jig to cut the cove in the leg bottoms, and to cut dado’s in for a bead molding. While a dado blade in the table saw would work for the dado’s, it wouldn’t do the cove. So, I used a simple jig to do both. I used 2 layers of 3/8” bendy board for the apron, glued up in the vacuum bag, and unibond 800 Ures Resin ...
i always wanted a mohagany dresser so i decided to build myself one. not really sure what design i wanted to follow and so after looking at a few on the site (i borrowed some ideas from you) i ended up with this so far. tell me what you think? my panels are 3/4 plywoodlegs are 1 1/2 squaredmoldings are just a cove and bead set up(end up trying to hide unsightly gaps after gluing up everything) i just have to fill some nail holes now drawers are being dovetailed on the jig, i̵...
One of the beautiful aspects of woodworking is that there are so many facets to the craft. Marquetry is one of these woodworking crafts that requires just basic woodworking tools and is well with the reach for all of us. The primary shop tools used for this wood project are the scroll saw, table saw, and the band saw. The hardwoods selected for this project came from a number of wood species that were in the scrap bin. Selected woods for this woodworking project include hickory, maple,...
