A Guitar for Daniel #8: Done. For now.

12-31-2012 05:22 AM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

Daniel came back for another visit and said “yeah, it sounds really off at the 12th fret”. With visions of “oh, crap, we have to mill off that fret and move it” we started playing with things, and discovered that the bridge was in the wrong place. The bridge had individually adjustable string positions, so we moved them, and got a sound that was okay, but the bridge was also really too high. So I chucked it up in the milling machine, milled it down a bit, then t...

Bedside tables #1: Concept

01-21-2010 11:42 PM by FrankThomas | 5 comments »

Hi… Beginning a new project and have the concept drawn in SketchUp. SketchUp is great by the. I enjoy the design phase of a project and have done a lot of pencil drawings with T-Square and ruler. Once I decided to spend the time to learn SketchUp I was surprised how quickly I could produce meaningful 3-d drawings. Anyways, a pair of bedside tables to match some of the design elements of our simple sleigh bed. Hence the shape of the legs. A small drawer with a bottom shelf seeme...

Tool thoughts #5: First turning on my lathe

08-28-2008 05:03 AM by NedB | 6 comments »

Last night I broke out the turning tools after cobbling together a temporary lathe stand… I actually used my miter stand: One thing I found, was that I want to lower the lathe a couple more inches, II will need to get shorter bolts, which will help, I wound up putting the 2×8 I bolted the lathe to on top of two 2×4’s, which really raised things up higher than ...

Murphy Bed #15: Finish Coats - Ready to Assemble

05-01-2009 11:29 PM by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Today I applied the finish coats of lacquer to all of the pieces. After a couple of hours of drying time I put all of the hardware pieces on, installed the legs as well as the center fake legs/ pull handles. I have come to the conclusion that I need a lot of help with using a spray gun. I either left out a step or do not have the settings right but even though I got a pretty nice finish it is not a really really nice finish that I have achieved with my hand applied finishes in the past....
