I just added the latest build progress of the Mandocello build. In this one I’m adding tone bars, the Virzi and also making some tap tone in between steps to really hear the changes happening on the soundboard. Let me know what you think!

A computer desk #12: Lid installed, PIP

01-21-2019 04:04 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

2 hour shop time last night, 4pm to 6pm….parts for the lid were taken out of the clamps, sanded clean, and squared up. Bread board ends needed trim a bit. Found a strip of scrap that I could use to set the “meeting angles” of the lid Short section is for the top shelf. Once the angles looked decent, I could use these to set the bevel on the tablesaw The long section needed a bit of clean up, bandsaw did a wavy cut….once that was where it matched the top shel...

Shop stuff #146: The bathroom reno...Building the vanity part 2

01-21-2019 01:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A longer format, which I prefer doing. This one completes the vanity to a functional state. Not yet completed, but with colder weather closing in there will be less time in the shop. I am passing along some information that I have gleaned over time too. View on YouTube

Among other things…4 hours of shop time…..wasn’t that great of a day..meh..Began by tracing around the desk, once it was as centered as I could get it….then drill a few pilot holes… Was hoping I would miss a few things underneath…nope…corner blocks were in the way. Placed the desk back on the base…kept trying to clamp things in place….finally found a 3×3 block, and clamped things down.. Fun part was lifting this thing up, on...

A computer desk #10: Been busy, need to get caught up

01-18-2019 01:00 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Where was I? Had some mortises to chop? Well, I set up the router table, to mill grooves to hold all those pencils/pens Needed a few of these chopped out. Backer strip for the pencil holder..Was going to use the thin Ash strips…..went out and bought a 1/4” thin strip of Poplar, instead.. Rather than a full width hole, I made them to accept a notched end….drawer shelf is now full depth….dry fitted Had to trim the poplar a few times…kept wanting ...

The wood used is Torrefied Sitka Spruce

A computer desk #9: Catching up

01-14-2019 03:45 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Figured I could at least finish the dovetails. Had the pins from the front done earlier. Used those to mark out the tails, and the bandsaw to make a few cuts….easier than using the handsaw, and I can see the cuts better.. Used a board under the part, to save the top of my bench. Still was a bit rough trying to clamp these in place. Like before, I chopped about halfway down, then flip the board over..(Mountain Dew was from thursday..yuck) And complete the chops, nice when I c...

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

01-13-2019 11:17 PM by DMiller | 6 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...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #2: Side panels and legs

01-13-2019 10:48 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 4 comments »

I milled up the stock for the legs and panels: Dry fit to test fit and get the final dimensions for the panel: Picked out some amazing grain wood for the panels, milled then book-matched two panels. I had planned on saving this wood for drawers, but I “think” I have enough: Trimmed the panels to width and test fit to mark the arch: Cut the mortises in the legs to take the cross stretcher: Glued up the panels and aggressively smoothed them. Cent...
