Musical Instruments Restoration #8: Violin 2 - Jig for the ribs on action

381 days ago by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Took me a little while to do the steel work on the jig. Have to make the somewhat C-clamp with push block. Cutting threaded bars and looking for the nuts. Shaping the push blocks (made from ebony) become tiresome after making 16 pieces. These are made from scraps. Here are some self explanatory photos… I give notes on some important aspects and ideas that you can grab suited for your project and availability of materials: Notes: 1) The piece that was bended was narra ripped by ...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #4: Carcass Installed

1448 days ago by RonPeters | 4 comments »

Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...

181 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, The chair arms have been formed into a nice rolled shape and they are ready to accept padding. This will be fun and it’s easier than you may be thinking. It is certainly less exacting than most would expect. Lets get started. There are 3 major products you can use to pad the arms of a chair. Foam, Cotton or Dacron Polyester.

Green and Greene Style Clock #3: Ebony plugs? Well, sorta.

809 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

The Greene brothers used ebony extensively in their furniture and architectural pieces and that use has become a trademark of their woodworking designs. I wanted to try to stay true to their designs and use actual ebony plugs in the Greene and Greene style clocks I am building. I was not impressed with the shouldered plug design the plans called for and wanted true pillowed ebony plugs in my clocks. Pricing Ebony, I decided that I would have to come up with some other method of getting my plu...
