    Hey fellow lumberjock family, just had to thank everybody for great posts, blogs and projects galore!! Can't believe about a year ago I had only just discovered this awesome site called lumberjocks.com. And feel sad for the woodworkers who are still missing out. :) I still have so much to post...
  4. Finishing
    Is there a resource, book or otherwise that would help me repair the finish of wooden musical instruments? I'm learning how to repair violins, cellos and the like and between the boss and myself, our weak point is repairing finishes in spots where we've made a repair. I have one situation coming...

    My project is a 10" cylindrical block of hard maple with 10 bores drilled end-to-end, starting in the center and then consistently smaller bores surrounding it. I have attempted to drill two around the center bore, but they have both wandered off of parallel by about 1/2" from one end to the...

    I started this project last year but other things got in the way, but I finally cleaned off the work bench and started it back up again. In one way, I like experimenting with these kinds of things and I'm not afraid to fail (luckily) so I'll be starting over again but for now, this is where I'm...

    I am working on a musical instrument that I designed. It has a very complex internal structure, and I fabricated it by cutting cross sections on a laser cutter, and then gluing the pieces together with wood glue. It is currently in two halves, and I am ready to join them together. However...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    I am looking for a source or book that describes which different woods complement each other. I understand open and closed grain woods, but sometimes you want to use contrasting woods or better yet woods types that complement each other and don't clash. There is a true design element to this...

    The soundboard and rosette. Time, just now, doesn't allow many words to describe this process. It's my first attempt an an acoustic guitar. I hope I have taken enough photographs to tell the story. Other than the spruce soundboard, much of the instrument is made from bits and pieces from the...

    Dulcimer Nut and Bridge Replacement Over the summer my wife came home after visiting a former colleague and brought in an oldish mountain dulcimer. It had hung on the wall at her friend's house and she was wondering if it could be made to play. I'm no expert, but I took a good look at it. It...

    The soundboard/tongue top There's been enough interest in the tongue drums I've built, I've decided to make a blog entry to share what I have learned, much of it through trial and error, as well as what research as I can find. Plese keep in mind that I am NOT a musician, so there's been a lot...

    Taking Inventory Long, long ago I used to make guitars. Forty years later I'm thinking, can I still to it? I break out the stuff I put into storage in my early twenties and see what I still have to work with getting ready for a winter pandemic, "one more guitar", build. This video is the story...

    I have a project to do for work and I am planning to use small 1/4" dia 1/8" thick rare earth magnets or neodymium magnets. I need a lot of them, 192 to be exact. I would appreciate any suggestions for a reasonable priced source. I am afraid rockler and woodcraft will be too expensive.
