Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #3: Part 3: Kerfing, Bracing, and Gluing the Back

01-13-2019 11:17 PM by DMiller | 4 comments »

The guitar is coming along well; progress however, has been slow as I only have two afternoons each week to work on it. I am grateful for the time I do have though. Over the last three or so months I have been working on it, the kerfing, bracing, and back has went together. The kerfing definitely isn’t perfect, but I think it is a is good enough to do the job. I definitely learned a bit or two about making it- use straight grained wood, bend to fit BEFORE cutting each groove in i...

Handmade wooden kazoos!

01-07-2019 01:16 AM by TomGrin | 4 comments »

I start with a blank ¾” x ¾” x 5”. I made a little jig to drill them in the drill press. I use a 5/16” brad point bit. It’s not long enough to drill all the way through, so I have to flip them. I switch to a forsner bit and drill the hole in the body. I drill it about 1 ¾” from one end. I cut the top piece on the bandsaw with the aid of a fence. I cut them ¼” thick and 2” long and ¾” wide to match the body of the kazoo. I sand the top pieces on some sticky backed sandpap...

Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Coffee Table With Storage For Puzzles And Board Games

09-14-2018 02:48 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I built this coffee table for my wife. She likes to put together puzzles and usually takes over the dining room table for a week or so. Now she can take the top off the coffee table, work on the puzzle for a while and put the lid on until she has time to come back to it. I made the table out of poplar and used General Finishes Java gel stain and Arm-R-Seal to finish it up. I am pretty happy with the results although I might buff out the top with steel wool in a couple weeks after it fully har...
