Packaging Ash wood to ship to Guitar Companies

02-10-2020 11:57 PM by Steve | 2 comments »

Southern White Punky Ash production was so out of sorts for the last 9 months of 2019 that our inventory was hand-to-mouth. We had a lot of back-ordered shipments and some (justifiably) angry customers Finally, we’re almost back to normal so we did a short YouTube video for two reasons: 1) Evidence that we are now sending out those backorders2) To light-heartedly apologize for our tardiness. Don’t expect to learn anything wood-wise with this one but if you want to se...

Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #4: Part 4: Rosette, Bracing and Gluing the Top

09-10-2019 10:23 PM by DMiller | 5 comments »

Well folks, its been a while! I am now in my senior year of high school and unfortunately, time is not slowing down! I haven’t had a lot of time to work on the guitar this past summer, but I really have enjoyed the time I have had. Looking back at my last blog makes me feel like since my last post not a lot has happened; in reality I feel like I understand how to build a guitar and the order everything is assembled much better. The rosette has taken just about the most time creating-...

Building a Homemade Electric Guitar

03-11-2019 07:55 PM by PeteCollin | 4 comments »

Hello All,This winter I completed a “bucket list” sort of a project. I took up woodworking in 2008, and always thought I’d build a guitar eventually. Well there were many skills I needed to develop before I could tackle something that needed that much precision. Last fall I took the leap, telling my wife I wouldn’t stress about success or failure. I would treat each step as its own project and not worry about what came after that. It was to be a Les Paul copy. ...

Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #3: Part 3: Kerfing, Bracing, and Gluing the Back

01-13-2019 11:17 PM by DMiller | 6 comments »

The guitar is coming along well; progress however, has been slow as I only have two afternoons each week to work on it. I am grateful for the time I do have though. Over the last three or so months I have been working on it, the kerfing, bracing, and back has went together. The kerfing definitely isn’t perfect, but I think it is a is good enough to do the job. I definitely learned a bit or two about making it- use straight grained wood, bend to fit BEFORE cutting each groove in i...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

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 ...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #3: Removing the Fretboard and Neck

03-06-2017 04:45 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

Video is here if you prefer not to read http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lZ1XroRf8o&feature=youtu.be Part 3 of this series is a simple prospect of removing the fret/fingerboard (they’re different names for the same thing) as well as the neck. The traditional joint for a guitar neck to be attached is a dovetail, this one was no exception however it was extremely poor in it’s execution (not surprising considering the number of these they made and the budget they were mad...
