Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 1 comment »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

End Table, out of Ash #8: glue up prep, and other things

12-01-2018 05:08 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

OK, took the clamps off for now….legs need a bit more work. Have a middle rail done, one because the only plywood panel IN the shop was 2” too short, and two, the rail stops saggy shelf syndrome.. Will get glued and screw at the center of the long rails, rebates are for the panels to sit in. Needed to set this machine up.. To mill a small cove detail. Allen wrench to fine adjust the height setting. The other two corners on each leg that show, will get a cove detail̷...

Random Shop Jigs and Projects #1: Slab Flattening Router Jig Using Kreg Universal Bench Rails

11-26-2018 03:10 AM by BoilerUp21 | 2 comments »

I had an extra set of Kreg Universal Bench Rails laying around and decided they might make good rails for a slab flattening jig that i have been intending to make for larger pieces that won’t fit in my planer. I don’t want to spend $700 for the woodpeckers slab flattening mill, although it looks like a great setup. The sturdy rails lend themselves well to both the main rails and the trough guides for the router. Clamps through the existing dog holes in my 48...
