  1. Telecaster Electric Guitar from Grizzly Kit

    My buddy thought it would be a good idea to challenge my woodworking skills by building an instrument (one I don't play but he does…). I am naive, so I agreed.

  2. Custom Guitar Case for Telecaster

    A special guitar build required a special guitar travel case. The guitar I just recently finished has some extra electronics that will travel with it. I figured a custom travel case to keep everything together made sense. The case needs to hold the guitar, MIDI pedal board, power cord, and...

  5. Semi-Hollow Telecaster

    Here is my second guitar build. This was a semi-hollow telecaster.

I put a five way switch in it to split the neck humbucker and create all sorts of...

  8. Figured Maple + Cedar Telecaster Electric Guitar

    A guy at my church loves building guitars and amplifiers (both the woodworking and electronics). He offered to help guide me through the process, and I jumped at the chance. It's been a long time coming - I've been working on it in between a lot of other projects, but it's finally finished! I...
  9. Telecaster style guitar: Forecaster

    After a few years of wanting to build my own T-style guitar this is the result. Three peice walnut body and maple neck. I really enjoyed using Tru-Oil as a finish and love the finish it has. I decided to not fill the grain since there is a check on one side and a few interesting knots here and...

  11. Bubinga Telecaster Guitar

    Figured it was time to show a project and introduce myself. A chambered telecaster style guitar with bubinga over mahogany (sapelle). I try to do as much as I can, including winding the pickups. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vTkdVnA_s20/VaAlSbGfzWI/AAAAAAAAAG8/mlDOkKzslFc/s1600/Bubinga%2B3.jpg

    My sister-in-law's father found this wood on his father's farm after his father passed away. He brought it back to Ontario and stored it in his workshop until he decided upon a suitable project for it. Sadly he passed away before he could do anything with it. I inherited several of his tools...

  14. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have built several boxes and jewelry boxes lately, some out of clear cedar trees I have cut down. I put a coat of linseed oil on the boxes which brought out and darkened the grain which I wanted. my question is, would tung oil or danish oil do the same thing? I think they would both be easier...
  15. Hand Tools
    OK plane guys I need a little help here. I bought the wooden plane body years ago at a local junk shop and I did't know if it was worth it or not. So here goes: It's 22 1/2" long by 3 1/4" wide by 1 3/4" thick tight grain hardwood, think its maple. Basically what I want to know is this just...
  16. Finishing
    I am using Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane thinned with 30% mineral spirits and spraying it on cedar with an air detail sprayer. When it dries it has speckles in it and is rough almost like it has sand in it. We are blowing everything off and using tack cloth on it and sanding with 220 before...
