Guitar Build Progress Report #1: ...early progress

08-19-2010 03:33 AM by knotscott | 5 comments »

My oldest son recently asked if I’d build him a solid body electric guitar…. my 2nd guitar project. We agreed on a unique slightly goth shape, green curly maple front, and a black back made from ash. A purchased unfinished Les Paul style neck is on order, which will likely be painted black. The head stock will be shaped to compliment the body…maybe some color compliments too. It’ll be trimmed with gold and black hardware. The pickups will be a GFS Fatbody single neck, ...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Me and my GRR-Rippers

05-05-2013 05:03 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 10 comments »

:O) I am a bit excited. I finally have a set of GRR-Rippers in the shop. I have been wanting one for a long time. So I put together this video to show you just a couple reasons why I am pumped up about these helpful shop accessories. Not only are they keeping me safe, but they are allowing me the opportunity to perform tasks I couldn’t perform before… That in itself has got me doing backflips… lol Here is a look at the video

One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you.

Roubo #1: The beginning, top.

01-15-2013 02:26 AM by bondogaposis | 11 comments »

Another Roubo build here. This is something that I really need. My old workbench that I built 30 years ago has gotten a bit rickety for hand planing I have found. I want something solid, so the only thing that moves when I plane a board is the plane. So I have begun to embark on a Roubo build. First step is the glue up. Leveling it up. I decided to go with poplar for most of the top. I have a cheap source of kiln dried poplar. I also think it is kind of soft for this applicat...
