    re-sawing on the bandsaw - recommendations

    Good morning everyone. I've got some re-sawing to do. I picked up some ebony, rosewood, and some curly maple as well the other day. I also have some walnut, pine, and cedar, that I would like to re-saw. The ebony and rosewood will be quite short, for fret boards, so about 3" re-saw height...

    The Moderne - Holy Grail of Vintage Guitars

    Hello everyone. I've been discussing this build for quite some time and am ready to at the very least start a thread. ;-) As some of you know my build threads can take quite some time. This hopefully will be quicker than most of my others as I have just been laid off from work. I view this...

    Fat neck Les Paul build

    A friend of mine contacted me about building a Les Paul style guitar with a Fat neck. I may have some time on my hands soon as I just got laid off because of the COVID crisis, so I thought why not. ;-) So as normal the first thing I do is work up some CAD drawings. I've been working on some...

    image issues?

    Could I get some advice on posting images to this forum? I do a lot of CAD work and like to take a snipit from my CAD program and post the image. I use a snipit tool and save the image file to a temporary directory and then use the "attach files" button at the bottom of the thread creation...

    Walnut SG

    Merry Chirstmas everyone. I might as well start a thread for this build. I cut some test bodies for an replica SG body I modelled and cut for a friend. One was a curly maple and the other was a Black Walnut body. I want to build this Walnut body up and give it to a friend's son for a...

    Spray Booth Build

    I'm starting this thread in the pre-design stages to weigh my options not only for the spray booth itself but for an addition I will be adding to my tiny shop. Please feel free to comment as I am really just in the beginning stages of design. I am going for a semi-pro setup but realize that...

    Rosewood Fret Boards

    Good morning all. I have a friend that I machined some Les Paul style necks for recently and now he would like some fret boards to go along with the necks. He was looking for some brown rosewood. So off to the Exotic Woods Store to sort through some rosewood. I think I lucked out and found a...

    Neck Day - Vintage LP style

    Neck day in the shop. I usually use a jig on my bandsaw to cut head stock angles and then my router table for truss rod access. I bought a bunch of the Stew Mac low profile truss rods and I'm not a big fan of using them in an angled head stock guitar. The route has to be quite deep at the...

    What's on YOUR CNC right now?

    Here is that new thread. All about CNC. Mainly so the builders that don't want to hear about CNC don't have to sift through a bunch of drivel in what seems to be a foreign language. Here is a pic of my newest CNC machine which is about 1 yr old right now. Since I took this pic I have jammed...

    Strat question

    Good morning all. A friend of mine wants me to make some templates for a early 60's Stratocaster. I managed to find some decent body pdfs and a head stock pdf but am missing a couple important details. I lined up a different neck drawing I had and re-traced the 62 ish head stock shape...

    Drilling into a finished guitar?

    Good morning all. Happy New Year's Eve! I will be adding a stop tail to my Firebird build as the Tremolo I purchased sits too high to give a decent break angle over the bridge. I also do not like the way this tremolo works. I will keep the base plate and cover like Derek Trucks and may even...

    Nut files - recommendations?

    I had a set of Hosco nut files. The three file set for 10 - 46 strings. Do not know where they went as I have looked most places. I didn't think they were great and would like to get others opinions on the best sets out there. Keep in mind I am looking from a hobby "ist" point of view so...

    Full Face Respirators?

    I've been spraying a bit lately and I have a couple others getting close. Can anyone recommend a decent full face respirator? There seems to be a lot out there at extreme price swings. I do not mind spending the $$$ to purchase quality. The filter ones will be fine. Thanks in advance...

    How about an SG build??

    I found some SG drawing on the internet and a few threads around lately. So I thought I would make up some Fusion models for another vintage Gibby model. Here are the plans I have. This modeling was a little beyond me so I enlisted a few hours from ejendres, again, to start a 3d model...
