Guitar Build Progress Report #2: Updates for 8/17/10

1440 days ago by knotscott | 5 comments »

Here’s where things stand as of noon today. All the parts and hardware are in. Here’s the top with the natural maple revealed on the sides. There’s one coat of spar varnish to protect the stained surface, plus help prevent fading. The back now has black paint. While rounding over the edges, we liked the look of the natural ash revealed as well, so we’ve decided to keep it….got some sanding ahead. Here’s the top and back together next to the unfinis...

Guitar Build Progress Report #1: ...early progress

1440 days ago by knotscott | 5 comments »

My oldest son recently asked if I’d build him a solid body electric guitar…. my 2nd guitar project. We agreed on a unique slightly goth shape, green curly maple front, and a black back made from ash. A purchased unfinished Les Paul style neck is on order, which will likely be painted black. The head stock will be shaped to compliment the body…maybe some color compliments too. It’ll be trimmed with gold and black hardware. The pickups will be a GFS Fatbody single neck, ...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #3: Rails and Stiles.

1440 days ago by degoose | 12 comments »

Having dressed all the timber to size… the next job is to make the frame..I use Cope and Stick construction.. also known as Frame and PanelFirst using a Mitre Express and Mitre 2000 gauge with stop attached… all the rails [horizontal parts] were cut to size …. this method ensures accuracy… the Stiles [ or the vertical parts of the frame…] are left over long… this means that a little extra protrudes past the rails… these are called ‘horns’ ...

Infill plane construction #1: And so it begins

1440 days ago by Tony Strupulis | 12 comments »

I was browsing the Popular Woodworking web site about a week ago when I innocently poked on a link to infill plane maker Sauer and Steiner. The site described how the dovetailed metal bodied planes are made using hand tools that most people already have. That was all I needed for motivation. I already own a hacksaw and a bunch of files. Never mind that I’ve never done any metal work or the fact that I already own two Stanley #4 planes, I’M GOING TO BUILD AN INFILL PLANE! An...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #76: Fretwork Cross Candle Tray and Charms

1440 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

After the initial delay of the morning yesterday, things went pretty well. The power remained on and as I understand it, it was out all the way to town for the time that it was. Although it remained overcast for most of the day, the misty rain subsided and by the time in needed to do the quick routing on the candle tray, the pavement was even dry. Things went very well. Since I changed my router bit, I have had little problem with burning. Apparently the dull bit was the culprit, and I...

Shopsmith V Drum Sander #2: Shopsmith V Drum Sander - Completed

1441 days ago by Milo | 8 comments »

Hey All, Sorry it took a while to get back to this. I had some sad family business to take care of, but I got back and finished this sander. Basically, I just built a box around the drum. It took a LOT of tweaking, primarily because I stink at design. Someone with better design skills could have measure the box height better than I did, but what the hey, it was fun figuring it out. I routed the length of the top with a straight bit and a cove bit to get the shape. I used some l...

The New Workbench Journey #8: Workbench Base Completed

1441 days ago by DrJosh | 3 comments »

Well, it has been a while since I posted any update on my workbench build progress, but it has been in the high 90s with heat indexes in the 105+ range…so working in a non-climate controled garage shop was tough. I had to work in short bursts and that made for slow going in a one man shop. Anyway, I now have the base of my new workbench complete and I’m now building the top. The first pic shows the primary base construction.This second pic shows the same base with a few extra ribs...

Random shop notes #8: Wire brushes and brooms.

1441 days ago by AnnaEA | 2 comments »

I spent a loud morning dragging my washer and dryer across the basement. Once they were out of the way I settled in for a grimy and dull bout of wall scraping and brushing. I also gave eviction papers to some 347 spiders of various sizes, most of whom went peacefully and without protest. I am so pleased with the ‘peacefully and without protest’ aspect of my spider eviction operation that I am adamantly refusing to think of where they might have relocated too. I have al...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #2: Meet "Mr. Snowman"

1441 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

“Mr. Snowman” is the second of the Skating Pond series which I am recreating. I love his little plaid scarf! Painting plaids is really fun and a bit of a challenge when I am doing so on such a tiny piece. He also looks a little more ‘fluffy’ in person. I am just going to keep scanning in the pieces now for consistency. When they are all done, I will take real photos using a camera and they may look a bit different. The snowman in the original set looked kind of ...
