I purchased a electric guitar kit first off and need to get some advice and check somethings and as Lumberjocks is the go to place for helpful woodworkers I am going to throw it out there for thoughts. I am seriously confused on the finishing well in general, I need a sealer which I put on after sanding? I have up to this point used a poly with a stain in it but I think I heard that someone told me once that poly is not good for the neck? Has anyone got any opinion on Tru-oil? I also want to stain the body, I have seen a couple videos online talking about some nitro stuff, is there a reason I can’t just pic a stain I like up as say my homie depot store and use that? Also I read in the instructions for this thing that I can get some vibration in the pickups, should I tighten everything super tight, which I would think could cause problems with certain aspects of the build.
Hand planes awwe the wonderful world of hand planes, man I think using one is by far the most fun I have building a project. I find myself planing more of a board than I need to, anyway I have several planes and have notice my jack plane gets used the most. Is that common? or am I just not to the point of using the rest as often as I could. Hmm probably me fav because the blade was in the best shape of my planes when I got it and quickest to sharpen. Which by the way I have a blade on my jointer plane that is almost impossible for me to keep sharp, which confuses me as I sharpen them all the same way and the other planes stay sharper longer even the ones I use when pissed at the jointer and grab another.
I wanted or want a kreg pocket hole jig, but as I am on a budget or rather money goes to other areas first, I don’t have one as of yet. My wife though wants a puzzle table with the top being some reclaimed oak board from a barn. So I decided to attempt to do my own pocket holes, I started a hole at a ninety the angled the drill at my desired angle and plunged right in, with a stop on my bit so it didn’t drill to far. While I still want the jig I was happy that it seemed to fit the bill for the time being.
-- why get a plan when you can get even more experience
