Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #4: Binding the Fretboard

09-05-2015 03:31 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

I used 1/16” x 1/4” ABS cream color bought from LMI. The 1/4” is just high enough to cover the crown on the ends. This stuff planes and scrapes very well so it was easy to plane it down to the board level without stressing the bond joint. I began by cutting the fretboard to size. This meant cutting it off flush where the nut goes and cutting it about 3/8” past the highest fret (#22). A gents saw worked very well for this. The edges of the board were planed ...

The Delta Unifence

09-05-2015 02:40 PM by trophyjoe | 3 comments »

I hate my unifence. I added the Uni-T-Fence from ttrackusa and it’s a decent upgrade. But the back side is still messy, not at all like the Biesemeyer. Anyone using the Unifence knows what I mean. Tripped over this from Been bouncing this same design between my ears for months but never executed. mistuhd: You get the glory. Now that you’ve done all the heavy lifting, I can build mine, ...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #2: Add Carbon Stiffeners to the Neck

09-01-2015 08:51 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

The plans I found recommend stiffening the travel guitar’s neck with carbon fiber. This makes sense because it lightens the neck slightly by substituting carbon for maple and because the travel guitar will want to have as thin a neck as possible without being weakened. This guitar will also use heavy jazz strings so some added stiffening will help the truss rod. Stewart MacDonald carries these. The plans suggested 3/16×1/4×18. I decided to orient the rod with long ...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #1: Planning and Roughing

08-30-2015 05:34 PM by Dave G | 2 comments »

My son is an accomplished jazz guitarist, having minored in music, playing every day several hours for 10+ years, and doing occasional jigs in NYC where he lives. I promised a hand-made personalized guitar for his graduation present. Now I’m going to make for him a Klein copy travel guitar. I found some plans online here by Eric Olds and here. I redrew them myself in sketchup because my son has certain specifications for the hardware that require laying out the neck/body conne...

Tablesaw Cross-Cut Sled

08-30-2015 02:43 PM by SirFatty | 5 comments »

A cross-cut sled should be one of the first jigs that a woodworker makes for the tablesaw. It’s more accurate that the typical miter gage and is safer to use. I’ve made a few versions over the years, but have not created one for the the Porter Cable table saw purchased three years ago. There are a couple things that set this version apart from the many variations seen on YouTube and various websites (or even Norm’s). First, the runners for the miter slots are made ...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #4: Phase 1 complete

08-24-2015 03:02 PM by jonlruss | 1 comment »

I was able to spend a little time in the garage this weekend and finish up what I’m calling phase 1 of my table saw project. The saw’s been cleaned, lubed, tuned, a new fence installed, and now the paddle switch and a power strip have been added. I really like the way the mount for the switch turned out. It’s solid and not in the way while being easily accessible. I still couldn’t get the aluminum weld to work. I think my propane torch just couldn’t get the heat ...
