  1. Journal Celtic Style Mandolin: 3-Layouts & Mockups

    Engraved contour lines onto the mockup. In the future, this will be a template because the wood for the soundboard is usually supplied in a rift-cut, wedge shape witch is the book matched. Since it isn't flat, it won't work in the laser cutter. Also cut out a drill-press depth stop to determine...

  5. Journal Celtic Style Mandolin: 2-Layouts & Mockups

    For the prototype soundboard; jointed and glued together some junk wood (I think it's cedar) in the glue jig.
  6. Projects The Twins

    Built the mandolin first, then, on a whim, I decided to build a matching concert scale ukulele.
  7. Journal Celtic Style Mandolin: 1-Layouts & Mockups

    This will be my first attempt at a carved mandolin soundboard. The Celtic style has a carved top with a "flat" back. This instrument will have "f" holes instead of the oval sound hole. First exercise is to map out the surface contours and profiles. I'll cut the profiles out with a laser cutter...

  10. 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...
  11. Violin bow re-hairing vise

    Rather than needlessly spend money, I decided to build a vise with which to learn how to re-hair violin bows. Believe it or not, the horse hair which causes the violin to make sound wears out after some time and must be replaced. It's a lot easier to work on such an object when it is held still...
  12. 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...
  13. The "Zatoichi" Toolbox

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here Regarding the name of this project. Zatoichi is the main character from a series of movies by the same title. The first ones were made as far back as the 1960s and the most recent around the early 2000s. Zatoichi is a blind man who works as a...
  14. Cello bridge fitting jig

    I made this oddball little helper as part of my journey in lutherie. I need to fit a new bridge to the 3/4 cello that I recently repaired. Part of the process is to make the 'feet' of the new bridge conform to the curved surface of the instrument in the location that it will be put. While...
  15. 8 String Guitar Body #2

    Finished my 2nd guitar body build! It is an extended range 8 string guitar body made out of solid quartersawn bubinga with a small diagonal wenge accent. This was a remnant I had left over from my coffee table I built a few years ago. I had always planned to turn it into a guitar body and I...
  16. Tool box for my soundpost tools

    My specialized tools for setting the soundpost in a violin, cello, or double bass have outgrown the tool roll I was keeping them in. I've thought for a while that I would make a tool box to put them in. Currently my workbench at work is still borrowed territory, so I wanted to keep things...
  17. Sliding Lid Box for Violin Tools

    Some tools that I need in my new craft as repairer of rental bowed musical instruments need to be too precicely engineered to make myself. These tools also usually cost a bit of money. For this reason I like to keep them safe and separate, so I made a case for my Violin peg shapers and the...
  18. 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...
  19. Cigar Box Ukuleles

    A good friend of mine is a Uke player (he played Tiny Bubbles at my wedding). In honor of the birth of his first son, I made him a cigar box ukulele. I also made one for myself - partly as a practice piece and partly because I think it looks pretty cool. I purchased the Ukulele Kit from...
  20. Irish wire strung harp

    Hello All, This is a project I built in August. This is a recreation of a wire strung Irish harp called "the Clonalis harp" it is one of about 17 surviving Irish wire strung harps or "clairseach" that have survived to the modern day. I started by projecting a full sized picture of the harp onto...
