Where was I?

Shop stuff #153: Yearly maintenance and adjusting.

03-22-2019 08:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Like most things you own, guitars need some looking at on a regular basis to keep them performing at their optimal level. This is a Wayne’s World Strat that has been in before in for a check up and adjusting. Once a year is a good way to keep them performing and in good shape. They are made of wood, and wood moves with the seasons. They also see pretty big swings in temperature and humidity if they are being taken out of the house and travelling around to gigs, practise and get toge...

Ok, a little background on this one….just before all those trips to the Hospital happened…I had a bunch of leftovers from the Desk project….even had the better looking pieces all resawn down to 3/8” stuff….then, once I was allowed to work IN the shop, Chester Drawers Project started up….

Arts and Crafts Dresser #9: Slow Drawer Dance

03-17-2019 12:53 AM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

I wanted to finish the drawers this week, but life (and my back) had other plans. Three to go, but no rush. The first nine are done, fitted and the insides are scraped and sanded. I used a trick to fit them a bit easier that I will share. The issue is if you have a half a degree of out of square in the carcass, and make a perfectly square drawer, you have a bit more hand work to fit it (or if you think your drawer is perfectly square and it is off a small amount). To accelerate thi...

Shop stuff #152: A Telecoustic with problems

03-16-2019 06:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s not a Telecaster. It’s not an acoustic. It’s some weird hybrid that doesn’t really fill the shoes of either. Regardless, someone likes it but not the way it plays, and no wonder. With a neck shaped like a banana and really high action that make it hard to play it needs some attention and TLC. A big adjustment on the truss rod and shaving down the saddle seemed to do the trick nicely. Naturally, I give it some cleaning and maintenance in the process like I al...

Finally finished! My wife helped make the cushions, which really add to the comfort! Wasn’t the best chair to sit in without them. I have been enjoying rocking in it and hope to for years to come. Feels so good to have it finally done after nearly 5 years…
