  1. Toboggan from years past

    24 years ago, on a weekend away from my new career as an air traffic controller, I purchased an inexpensive Craftsman 10" contractors saw. I made a couple of finger boards out of scrap 2×4. I found a local lumberyard and bought some 8/4 ash. Using the saw and finger boards to hold the ash to the...

  3. Guitar Fingerboard Compound Taper Jig

    This is a jig I built out of scrap wood laying around the shop to put a compound fingerboard radius on a guitar build I am working on. The radius's are 10" at the nut and 12" at the 12th fret. The fingerboard is made out of ebony and the neck is mahogony.
  4. Guitar Thru Neck Router Plane

    This is a very task specific jig for a thru-neck Tele SG hybrid guitar I'm working on. From the top of the fingerboard to the top surface of the body, there is an elevation change of 0.32". So whatever the final thickness of the fingerboard is needs to be subtracted from the 0.32", and that...

    Two fingerboards getting bound Recently, I decided to start building three new banjos. It's been a while (years?) since the last time I built an instrument… I've had so many ideas run through my head in that time! These three instruments will share a common scale length (24.75"), and in terms...

    The beginning Hi everyone, finally I come back with a blog for a little project I been doing in my free time for the last 2 weeks. As it was bound to happen I think, having been a professional musician for nearly 20 years and now interested in woodworking as a hobby among some other things...

    Roughing out the neck A co-worker asked if I could build something like a bass viol for him. I told him that it sounded like a long process, but I did not say 'no." Below is what a bass viol can look like. Mine whon't quite look like it, but it should act like it. I will be making every piece...
