Baby bow saw #6: Kolrosing

01-02-2021 08:38 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

Once the saw was “done” I still wasn’t quite happy with it. I decided it needed decoration. With the light yellow of the citrus wood, the dark brown of coffee grounds made a very pretty contrast. Kolrosing (or kohlrosing) it is! I decided to do a more linear pattern on one side, and a more curvy, or floral pattern on the other, mostly to get more experience and figure out what I like better.

One More Guitar #8: Shaping the Neck

10-28-2020 02:43 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Here I finally take the neck I glued up in an earlier episode and shape it with drawknife, rasp and sanding. This is part 8 of the making of a guitar after a 44 year hiatus from from having made them long ago in my youth. It is as I learned it in Camden, Maine from Luthier Nikos Apallonio in the mid 70’s. The process uses only ordinary shop tools and simple homemade jigs. The video:

Then, the braces are preliminarily carved down to rough shape.This is one more guitar after a 41 year hiatus from making them. The last one made when I was 24 years old. It uses materials purchased at that time and tools and jigs of that era. See the video here

There’s a lot of work packed into this 21 minute video I just published. This was a custom closet door project and I’m showing the process starting at the lumber yard to the end where you see the customer reaction. It’s almost the perfect length of video to make a 30 minute TV show… if HGTV would be interested in some craftsmanship. Here’s what’s covered if you’re interested in a part or all of it:- selecting lumber in the lumber yard- rail and s...
