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...

Faery Mirrors Build #2: Learning & More Jigs

02-08-2013 02:33 AM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Well… a couple of days of intense learning. Chopped some mortises with my drill press, not very happy with them, machine has way to much runout. You can see them on the left. So I made a mortising jig for my router, inspired by this post:http://lumberjocks.com/HungryTermite/blog/13593 The mortises on the right (above) were cut with this jig. I made some upgrades to the jig. I scribed centre lines before drilling for the router, then mounted a 1/4 inch brad point drill b...

Woodworker's Auction #2

06-19-2012 09:17 PM by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

Entertainment Center #4: Base, Shelves, and Top

05-24-2011 05:20 AM by Marc | 1 comment »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. As promised, I completed the base of the entertainment center this time, along with a couple of other little details. The base is just made up of four corner blocks and four rails screwed together with some pocket screws. The corner blocks were actually pretty easy to make although…

52 Weeks #22: Working on my first cutting board.

06-06-2011 03:09 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So one of the things I like about this hobby is there is always something new to try and for a person that has a hard time with doing the same thing constantly that is a good thing. The problem with that is there is always something new and I have not yet found one thing to focus one, I am not sure if that is a good thing or not. But until I figure it out I am pretty happy trying as much as I can. That being said I have decided to tackle a cutting board. My first one is to be for a gift a...

Cabinet Making #1: Looking At Actual Cabinet Construction

06-28-2010 05:30 AM by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

Last year I bought a half kitchen with the idea that I would add the cabinets to my workshop and give it an upgraded feel. (Right now everything is gray melamine which I got from an office that was being torn down.) When my wife saw that I was going to use the cabinets in my shop she immediately said they are too nice to get beat up in the shop. Too nice is a relative term. Let’s take a look. Here is an example of one of the cabinets. Here it is from different angle. Th...

Simple Writing Desk #1: Working my way through

04-18-2012 10:04 PM by Rick | 1 comment »

I started out with a bunch of sycamore. It’s been sitting in my garage now for a year. I finally started to make use of it. A sample with one end shellac, one end Arm-R-Seal My wife is in need of a desk, but we wanted something simple. She said she didn’t even want a drawer. So we measured, and started on a couple boards. The boards had some twist. I spent a lot of time getting that out. I tried ripping one board on the bandsaw, then jointing one of the rips. I...
