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 #4: Crack Repairs and Top Reinforcement

03-21-2017 01:00 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 6 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the youtube video is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmXWgNwtXAg For this session I started to repair and reinforce some of the bigger issues with this guitar. All guitars experience a tremendous amount of strain and pressure on the neck joint at the body. A good way to counter this strain is to reinforce the top in the area just below the fingerboard. This guitar did not have any reinforcement in that area and thus it was necessary to add some stiffness ...

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M
