  1. New Member Introductions
    I just stumbled on this site while doing a search on "bandsaw tables." I found a thread that had exactly what I was looking for and then I nosed around a little. I like this place! I retired from a 30 year career in a private law practice in Montpelier Vermont, just as Covid was hitting us all...
  2. Started months ago just finished it today. Cigar box guitar

    I started this guitar months ago but it sat around unfinished. I decided to wrap it up today. Its a short version with a poplar neck with padauk inlaid into it. It has frets to scale for its size. Its a 4 string and it feels really solid which is different from others i have seen, they...
  3. Guitar

    Came home from college over winter break. Had to scratch my itch to do woodworking. It was extremely cold! The white inlay, saddle, and nut are deer bone from a carcass i found in the back field (i know a little gross). A lot of sanding to sculp things (heel of the neck especially). Everthing...
  4. Honeybee, the Sapele Telecaster

    Guitar #5 - the SapeleTele I'm christening "Honeybee" for it's black and gold burl cap. This is my secohttp://lumberjocks.com/projects/new#nd semi-hollow electric and first body cut entirely on the CNC machine. The neck is hand-carved maple with a birdseye fretboard and features Abalone fret...
  5. The New Axe

    This is the new axe, its taken some time but only working a few hours on a weekend, I knew it would take the time. This is my version of a Texas-like Tele. I made the body and neck from Honduran Mahogany ..a friend of mine had a 48" x 28" x 2 1/8" piece of flat sawn Honduran Mahogany laying...
  6. Ukulele/Guitar Stand

    My very first wood project, a stand for my ukulele :) The imperfection is so obvious, hopefully my skill will improve with time.
  7. Pine Box Resonator Guitar

    Cigar Box Guitars are a real passion for me. It's actually my main woodworking area. If you don't know CBG's are primitive instruments build mainly with found objects and usually have 3 or 4 strings. It's what alot of poor folks in the south played tunes on. Many blues players started with...
  8. Custom Spalted Hard Maple amp cabinet for a Fishman Loudbox Mini

    This latest guitar amplifier project started off as a limited edition (cream w/black face) Fishman Loudbox Mini Pro - which I got a killer deal on because part of what made it a limited edition - the cream tolex, was completely trashed. So I whipped out this amazing piece of spalted hard maple...
  9. Ukelele Case from Recylcled Lumber

    This is ukelele case for a local musican. He plays ukelele professionally, and wanted a very durable case that could stand up to a beating if need be. And he wanted it made out of recycled wood, if possible he requested. So With luck I chose a very weathered piece of 3/4 inch ply and took...
  10. I Love My New Guitar!

    This is a new 4-string resonator dobro type guitar just completed. I will keep this one for myself. The guitar found its voice for the first time today, and boy, doesn't it sound awesome to my ears! All through the building process I wondered about the resonator I made for it. Was it made...
  11. Three + years of Lap Steels

    Hello all, just tooting my own horn. Pictured is about 3 or four years evolution of my building Lapsteel guitars. For those who don't know, a Lapsteel sounds much like the more common pedal steel, though it is a much simpler instrument to build. It is played with a bar and finger & thumb picks...
  12. Carved Skeleton

    No, it's not for my house. My oldest son, an avid guitar player and collector, asked me to carve something to put in his "guitar room". He's got it so bad that when he built his new house he dedicated a room for his guitars and sound proofed it so he could play to his heart's content (bless...
  13. Classical Guitarist's Footstool Footrest

    Just recently started woodworking and my brother is a classical guitarist so this was an obvious project for me.. The main footrest is reclaimed white oak with a leather pad and the scissor supports on the side are mahogany plywood i pulled off of some drawers (reclaimed) and some 3/8" dowels...
  14. No strings attached My version.

    First off, I'd like to thank Dan, Eklund for the great Guitar pattern in the Holiday issue of SSW&C magazine about a year ago. This was so fun yet so hard for me to cut. It was a great challenge for me. I used 17 different woods in this. I like the colors I used but may do a second one and make...
  15. Guitar Hangers

    My son wanted a wall hanger for one of his guitars because the floor stand was taking up a lot of space in his small room. I looked online for some options and finally decided to just make one. I glued up some scraps of Mahogany (center strip), Maple, and Cherry (outside strips). I basically...
  16. Guitar stand

    My brother's birthday was a while ago and I thought I will make something instead of buying. He enjoys playing the guitar and one thing I've noticed is that when he puts the guitar down it tends to fall over, especially when his 2 small ones are running around. So I've looked at a few designs...
  17. 3-String Guitars Build

    I've just finished up the first two out of four of the 3-string guitars (and maybe more) I am buiilding for my grandkids. They sound great to me, but I am not very musically literate. I plan to take them to a real musician for their opinion and critique soon. My wife plays a little and she...
  18. Fret leveling file holder

    Hi guys, this is a small project I made for my guitar building hobby, in this case, for fret leveling work (still learning the goodies). The original plan: The real thing, I made it with some tzalam wood leftover pieces I had at hand: and: The magnets came from some cheap headphones and...
  19. Cigar Box Guitar number 10

    This was number 10 in the Cigar Box Guitar series. It is a three string slide style blues guitar, but has pretty good action for fretting also. It was made for a dear friend of mine who has shared many guitar playing evenings with me and has taught me a lot a bout playing guitar. He truly is...

    This is an electric guitar oak storage case for the new Baptist Church Youth Center in Fairbury. This is the biggest cabinet I have ever built. It is red oak, lockable, and will hold up to 6 electric guitars. One of my buddies twisted my arm into doing this project :) Since I have never built...
