  1. Fish carvings

    Here are two fish carvings which my husband carved and painted as gifts a few years ago. The largemouth bass is carved from bass and mounted on a piece of rustic oak (along with a tiny bass which he also carved and painted). The pumpkinseed is carved from bass also, but mounted in front of a...
  2. The 5 String No Head Purpleheart People Eater

    This is a project I have been wanting to do for sometime. Many years ago I bought a Steinberger Spirit 5 String bass but found the body to be very uncomfortable. It spent most of it's life in a case until I finally pulled it out and decided to build a new body, using the original neck and...
  3. Meat Grinder Plunger

    The pictures are of a meat plunger that I duplicated from the one that was included with the meat grinder. The picture #5 is the original plunger and the picture #6 is the end of the original plastic plunger showing a hole in it. My son-in-law and grandson are deer hunters and they use the...
  4. Bentwood ring with bass guitar inlay

    The ring is made from walnut and I used bass guitar string (0.45) to inlay it. Bass guitar string was suitable because she wanted me to make it stick out. With guitar string you can "hide" it in the groove and beneath the finish so that the surface is flush. Since I made a "How to make a...
  5. Bass carved from a piece of driftwood

    Ok, if you saw my blog, you know I am a "newbie" at carving. This is my first "real" carving (minus some hack jobs with a box blade and scrap 2×4). I found a piece of driftwood in a creek behind my house and decided it needed to become a fish. After a lot of messing up and fixing and...
  6. Custom Bass Guitar

    I finally got some pictures of the custom bass I made for myself. The body is locally harvested (Michigan) White Ash. The neck is Mahogany with a tiny bit of Cherry in the headstock, and the fingerboard is Striped Ebony. The rear coverplate is quartersawn Cherry. It is quite heavy because...

  8. Bass guitar speaker cabinet

    Built a speaker cabinet from an old speaker that my friend gave me. I just deiced to get into playing bass a few months ago and the practice amp that came with it was pretty bad. It's not completely finished. I need to paint it or cover it with tolex or something. But I didn't want to put the...
  9. Upright 4 String Washtub Bass

    So, I made a Bass. How awesome is that. I cut the circle for the soundboard with the new(used) bandsaw from 1/4" birch plywood. The soundhole was cut using a jigsaw with scroll blade. I colored the top with oil stain and Mixol tints to get a sunburst effect. Then finished with some Poly...
  10. The Shamisen Bass

    Before you ask, the only reason for 2 strings is because I only had 2 tuning machines. If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube Just FYI these pics are slightly out of order. This project was something I had had in mind for some time. I hadn't played bass in about 8...
  11. Barker Musical Instruments, Limited Edition: The Cherry Vat Basses

    Out of the dusty manuscripts come these images of a project inspired by what appeared to be junk wood: Timbers about 5 inches wide, 2 1/2 inches thick and 9 1/2 feet long (see the image of self and bass and "before" board). Turns out these were staves for giant vats wherein cherries are...
  12. Dad and Victoria Carving up Mother's Day

    Howdy, I asked "Victoria what are your plans for Mother's Day?" The reply 2 weeks ago was "Ida Know". The reply 1 week ago was "Ida Know". The reply 3 days ago was "Ida Know". The reply at 4:00 PM yesterday was "Ida Know". I asked, "How about a personalized name plate for her desk? Her...
  13. Oak Pedalboard

    This is a project that has been long in the making. Since it does have electronics components and I wanted to make sure everything was just right, planning took a very long time. It also took a while to get parts in that I had to order. I am so glad to have it finished and usable. The whole...
  14. Bass Speaker Cabinet

    I made this bass speaker cabinet at the request of a friend. Most of my projects don't require plans and a cut list but I was able to use them in this case. There are 45 biscuits, so I cut 90 slots hoping that everything would line up correctly. Started with a 5×5 sheet of 1/2" Baltic Birch so...
  15. Howler Bass

    This was a bass that I built for Rob Icaza, the bass player from Howl. This bass is comprised of 410 individual pieces of wood with species including cherry, wenge, purpleheart, lignum vitae, ash, maple, paduak, poplar, bamboo. This bass was probably one of the most ambitious projects I have...
  16. Blue Haze Bass #1

    This is my first bass guitar. It is a two string cigar box bass, tuned E-A. Gotoh tuners, Cherry neck, large Kristoff box. Sounds real good both acoustic or electric. It has dual peizo elements mounted under maple bridge. I am in the process of winding actual pick-up coils for near the neck but...
  17. Sea Captain

    This sea captain is my first project posted on Lumberjocks. I began wood carving in January of 2019 and regret that I didn't start a whole lot earlier. I've had so much enjoyment finding characters in wood! This little captain is 6" tall and is made of bass wood. He was made as a gift for my...
  18. Fishing rod carrier

    This is my first attempt at carving. I used chisels and a dremel to create the bass. This carrier is made of 1/2 inch plywood and trimmed in mahogany. I finished it with Marine epoxy. I made it for my brother's birthday and he loved it! Thanks for looking!
  19. bass

    A friend wanted a bass made out of walnut with a triceratops inlay. The neck is Warmoth and the pickup is Lace.
  20. My parents' urns

    When Mom died unexpectedly at the age of 98 a few years ago, Dad asked me to make her urn. I sized it to fit the plastic case which the crematorium used. Never having had a great deal of success with long ripped miters, I decided to use contrasting corner posts. I laminated a photo of Mom...
