Latest Q&A about the Mandocello build.

05-14-2019 10:43 PM by Tomy Hovington | 0 comments »

Since the early stages of building the Mandocello I have been adding Video Q&A to my YouTube Channel to allow the questions and answers to reach more people. At that point in time, My webpage was still far from it’s make over and this Blog was not in the back of my mind yet. But since there is a lot of information share in response to those great questions asked by the same people following this build, I thought this will fit right in with the tip and tricks Blog post. Some of the t...

Shop stuff #158: Roubo bench part 12...Veering away from tradition with the long stretchers

05-10-2019 12:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Back to the bench build. This time I am putting the long stretchers on the base. I am also taking the path less travelled and making the bench my own by doing the joinery a bit different. I wanted to continue on with making the bench my own creation, while still respecting the overall form and function. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #157: Guitar intonation theory

04-29-2019 01:23 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Nope, not making anything this time. Except maybe making your head spin. Guitar intonation can be figured out using maths. It just takes a little bit of thought and logic, and the pieces will finally fall into place. The maths are not difficult when it comes right down to it. A bit of division and multiplication, no algebra, trigonometry, or calculus needed. I try to simplify just how guitars work in this video. A bit of a rabbit hole, but it’s one I enjoyed going down.

Shop stuff #156: A saddle of bone for an acoustic guitar.

04-20-2019 02:15 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

My first time trying this job. It is very involved. I made the blanks quite a while ago and have that video up on my channel. I get the blank roughed out and fitted, stumble a bit, and carry on. Interesting medium to work with and very traditional for the job. The saddle will probably be worth more than the whole guitar, but I think that’s just what you want for a first try at something. Having some fun with this one! View on YouTube

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube
