Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

This week in the shop: an old tool tote

06-25-2017 05:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Last year a very dear friend died after a full life. She was a very practical lady, and after she took care of items that she wanted the family to have, she made arrangements for the rest of her possessions to be organized and set up so that her extended family could come to her house and take their pick of what was in her house, from books, to shelving, to plates to everything. Absolutely nothing was sacred and everything was supposed to go if anyone had a use for it. One of the things th...

Antique 3/4 HP motor restoration

04-15-2017 04:41 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

I found a couple motors at a local yard sale and cleaned them up and got them running. The big one is 3/4 hp with 3450 rpm. I was originally going to use it for a disc sander, but got lucky this morning and found a 3/4 hp x 1725rpm motor which is more suitable. Check out the video and subscribe.

If you prefer not to read the video is herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwLDBA1nQIo So we are now at the most annoying part of this entire restoration and that’s the bridge plate. Here’s a picture so you can get an idea of what and where the bridge plate is. It’s the small overlaid piece of wood A guitar’s bridge plate does quite a few very important jobs for the guitar. To make it simple, the pull of the strings on the top of the guitar is quite intens...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #3: Removing the Fretboard and Neck

03-06-2017 04:45 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

Video is here if you prefer not to read http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lZ1XroRf8o&feature=youtu.be Part 3 of this series is a simple prospect of removing the fret/fingerboard (they’re different names for the same thing) as well as the neck. The traditional joint for a guitar neck to be attached is a dovetail, this one was no exception however it was extremely poor in it’s execution (not surprising considering the number of these they made and the budget they were mad...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #2: Removing the Back

02-27-2017 02:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 3 comments »

Video entry is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3G8GxAHNmY The first step on this long project is to remove the back of the guitar. The reason we are doing this is two fold, there is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to both the back, sides, and top of the guitar. If we were to try to do the level of work that is required through the soundhole we would be far too tedious and would end up with a poorer result. Removing the back allows me extremely easy access to all ...
