    I think we get out of high school a year later than you do in the US. I'm turning 18 this month, so soon I am an adult, at least by law:laugh2: But seriously your comment really means a lot me, even though you think I am "one of those punk kids".:laugh2: Thank you sir. I totally agree with you...

    Plane Refurbishing

    Great and informative thread! Now I just have to sharpen my hand plane and learn how to use it properly! I got a couple of old chisels and a gouge from my grandfather yesterday, they too need some attention.

    Time to rout for the binding! I added bungy chords to the jig to make it float a bit. I don't know if you can see it but the routerbit didn't get all the way in to the corner of the inner horn, so for next time i'll make the cookie/guide thing a bit narrower. For this one I just...

    :laugh2: Nice spotted, I thought I had enough room, but apparantely it was just too little, I'll modify it for the next build! Thanks man! Sure, here is a picture: I wouldn't mind a plexi to go with the guitar either... Your jig was one of the inspirations for mine! Thanks for...

    How to cut truss rod nut space in headstock

    I rigged up a little jig like this. Can't source any spotfacers here in Sweden. I think a spotfacer is the safest approach however. Don't forget to ad a spacer in the bottom of the trussrod channel so you don't drill too near the back of the neck if your are doing the vintage size cavity...

    Yes now :) Routing for the neck pocket. I used a really long routerbit with a bushing to rout the pickup ears, I made an oversize template to accomodate for the bushing diameter. Came out pretty ok! You may notice that I have smoothed the top carve some. I sanded the...

    Okay! The angled control cavity rout! Used this little tool to center the pot holes with the routing template. And to check that it would make the right routing marks. And then rout away! Looks like a 50's rout to me, but I'm not an expert by any means. But I feel great about it...

    Canon EFS 18-55 :) Hi! I don't mind at all. It's made for my router so it doesn't mean that my measurements will work for yours. But The jig has to be about 2 1/2" high (higher than the body with the maple top on). And it has to be deep enough so that the routerbit reaches all the steps. It's...

    Thank you sir, I like taking photos. I don't even wan't to know how many pictures of this build I have on my computer:lol: A Canon EOS 1000D, it's called the Rebel XS in the US i think. :laugh2: I'm leaning against that too, I'll play around with it a bit and see how it looks!

    Thanks man! Yeah I am pretty blessed in the way that my dad likes to do some woodworking too, but he works mostly, so I can have the shop all for myself. Can't wait until I can get my own shop though, this one isn't optimized for guitar building... yet:cool:
