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.

12-10-2018 03:15 AM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

This is a project, but it is not made of wood…....... it is made FOR wood.Our past guild president,Jeff, and I were talking about the need for a better hollowing system over the Jamieson loop arm system that we both have. That system works but it is a bulky on the back end with the big loop and double bar set up.Jeff brought over a Monster brand hollower that he is trying out and I found many different systems on You Tube including the Elbo system which was the first articulated arm s...

He has a wide selection of surfaced slabs an flitches if you like live-edge projects, too. On Saturday, he will be offering demonstr...

dice trays #1: Square tray and rectangular tray

10-27-2018 02:40 PM by TheTimberAlchemist | 4 comments »

Working on a a couple quality dice trays for those hardcore gamers out there. They still need a few more coats of Danish oil and a felt or fabric to line the interior base. Comments and suggestions welcome. Both have dice storage areas and personal dice trays. I have made some with felt but I like the faux suade texture and sound. What do you all think? At the moment I have orange and gray suade. I cant decide which one to put in which tray.
