  1. 8 String Guitar

    Here is my final RG8 style custom 8 string guitar. It took me quite a while to finish but it is finally done! Solid Bubinga body with a Wenge accent stripe. Maple and Wenge laminated neck with a matching Bubinga accent veneer cut from the same wood as the body. Rosewood fretboard with 24 frets...
  2. Three Shop Furniture Projects

    Three shop furniture projects: Hanging shelf for hand power tools made from re-purposed entertainment equipment shelf unit. Cabinet for slot mortising machine. Flip top cart for oscillating spindle sander and combination 1 inch belt sander/disk sander. All built for function not beauty.
  3. Guit-Chair Resto-mod

    I've been slowly eliminating the barriers that keep me from practicing my guitar. One obstacle was having a comfortable chair to practice and play from. I kept my eyes open and spotted an old school desk/chair on the curb in someones trash pile. It's very old white oak and had seen a pretty...
  4. My first project

    This is my very first woodworking project ever. I decided to build a desk because I could not find one at goodwill. I started out just drawing what I would like a desk to look like and then turned it into a Sketchup model. From there I had to build it. I went to homedepot and bought 2 4×8...
  5. That's just grate

    I have a plain sisal/jute door mat outside my garage entry door that gets water logged when the rain is from the wrong direction. The only way to have it dry is to lift in off of the cement and set it on edge. When it does get wet It is heavy so I took some old cedar fence boards, cut them up...
  6. Woodturning
    I've seen a video on youtube by a Walt Wager, I believe. He uses large nyloc nuts as the glued-in threads for reusable glue blocks. I like the idea of it but his lathe must be a little different from mine. He uses 1" x 8tpi nylock nuts. My Nova lathe headstock is 1 1/4" x 8tpi and I cannot find...
  7. Woodturning
    Hey everyone. Was reaching out here for some advice on the Nova Galaxi DVR lathe I recently got. When I try to lock down down the workpiece between the live spur and tailstock centers, the headstock lifts up off the bed around .01 as measured by a dial indicator, which is pretty significant...

    Vintage Lathe Need Your Help! I was gifted this amazing lathe that works extremely well! I have been able to turn lamp bases, vases, rolling pins, and so much more! HOWEVER, I would like to try some bowls and need to figure out how to change the spur drive out for the bowl clamp! I have a...
  9. Woodturning
    I have had my lathe less than 5-days and turned 1 1/2 pieces (second piece is still on lathe to be completed) and when I tried to switch from a 'live end' to a 'drill chuck' on the tailstock, IT WAS FROZEN IN PLACE. I figured I had done something wrong and immediately did an Internet search...
  10. Woodturning
    Hello - thanks for looking at this, hope some great comments are posted. I was gifted a nice new lathe with a 1" 8 TPI headstock. Yay. I also received a bunch of chucks and faceplates that do not match the headstock. A bunch are 3/4" and two are 1" but 12 or 16 TPI - hard to tell. I have...
  11. Woodturning
    I posted a while back about my 1920's lathe. One of the biggest issues I had was the inability to use modern accessories like a live center tailstock and a chuck style headstock. Today with christmas trees in mind, more specifically the stand, I made a custom chuck for my lathe using the wheel...
