Boxes from Red Cedar #4: From scraps to a tray

12-23-2020 03:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

As I guess the sides of this tray make it a box…sort of? Sorted through the leftovers….managed to find three decent looking ones….none were bowed…just the T&G edges were not the best looking..or ..locking. Tablesaw to rip those off. Was trying for a 9” x 12” panel… This was so much fun to do…..first blue clamp wanted to pop the 3 slats up into a curvy thingy….started to add the cauls, to keep things close to flat….....

REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP #4: now I'm working with power

12-19-2020 05:44 AM by garethmontreal | 2 comments »

Quick update spent the day you vwrjng the shop with my huddg and it’s all done now. Installed 4 new lines (three 110v and one 240) so that the table saw, lathe, band saw and drill press each have their own dedicated circuit. Have to organize everything again but totally worth it very excited to get it up and running.

12-06-2020 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, worked on the lid a bit….panel wasn’t fitting just right…..grooves were preventing things from settling all the way in…we have ways.. Changed the cutter from 1/2” wide, to 1/4” wide….had a few high spots to level…. Was finally able to spread some glue, and add some clamps…inside looked good….topside? Will be a work in progress….bad sign…fingers way too long….. Cut a few thin slats to size….and...

REHAB UPDATE: SETTING UP SHOP #2: The shop will be mostly set up and good to go a week from today.

11-22-2020 05:33 AM by garethmontreal | 8 comments »

My electrician friend is coming by friday to help me (by which I of course mean hell be doing the actual work will i hand whatever he asks me for to him) get everything wired up properly. Thankfully my main panel has a bunch of space left to add new circuits and its located in the room right beside the workshop. Given this fortuitous state of affairs we are going to set the table saw one its own separate circuit (which is 240v probably would have done this regardless) as have a dedicated cir...

One More Guitar #4: Prepping the top, back, and rosette

10-11-2020 11:21 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

The past couple of days I prepared the top, and back and began making the soundhole rosette. Making a guitar is sort of like building a machine. But in this case you don’t buy the parts and assemble them. You make the parts first, then when all the pieces are made you can assemble them. I’m at the point where a number of parts are in the process of being made together on a rotating basis. You can see the short video here or click the graphic below.

Fixing square holes with round pegs, splitting off a lid….among other tasks…Army of clamps removed…well..maybe just a Squad….Box was looking a bit rough around the edges…like it had just been woke up…..We have a few tools to use, along with a sander, or two…Stanley No. 4, Type 10, and a Stanley No. 60-1/2 block plane. Dovetails needed smoothed down flush with the sides, and the sides needed smoothed and flat, so.. Have no idea what is under the t...

Vintage Fisher Stereo Cabinet Update

10-02-2020 04:51 PM by Jerry | 8 comments »

My customer Pete received his cabinet a couple of days ago, he was kind enough to send pictures of the receiver installed in the cabinet. Since I already posted the cabinet by itself as a project previously, I didn’t want to post it as a project again.
