Well that maybe that will be its second life. Here's a bit more progress.
Posted already in recording studio but I have been goon from the luthiery board for ages so here we go.
I built an 8u rack for my studio desk yesterday.
Can't wait to build some outboard gear to fill up the rest.
Non-guitar related but my mom's getting a tortilla press for Christmas, don't tell her
Hard maple and cherry, piece in the back is phili mahogany. Handle and feet were on the CNC, laser for the monogram, everything else the old fashioned way. Finished with beeswax.
Nice! Great gift!
Sanding is for the weak.
You got a serious workshop!
Nice t-slot covers
Been a while since Ive posted and I don't have any guitar related builds going on yet, so I'll post some of the furniture and the canoe paddles I've been making for the last couple of years here.
Canoe paddles that my brother and I have been working on for my parents that I wanted to finish 2 years ago. Life gets in the way, though. :\
Laminated cherry, padauk, maple, padauk, cherry. The cherry was flat grain so we had to get creative and biscuit join them to the shaft without using a biscuit joiner. They're currently in my basement awaiting more shaping for the handles and more carving but overall quite happy with how they turned out. May have my parents sign the handles before applying a waterproof finish to them.
Sorry for giant pictures, don't think imgur can resize them and I'm too lazy to do it before posting.
And here's where all my build time has been going towards lately: building a coffee station with counter and storage for our kitchen to. Not gonna bother having doors on it but would love to put flat iron stock on the edges of the plywood, even if there was a fake alternative that looked like raw iron to give it that rustic look everyone is hard for lately. This will house our microwave and the shelves on the side are gonna be for shoes since this is next to our back door. Butcher top counter top from home depot will get cut down to size when the weather is agreeable and then it should be all ready to go in the kitchen.
Don't mind my dingy basement pics.
And here we have the butcher block desk tops I commissioned from my local wood supplier/shop because I don't have the patience or equipment to make laminated pieces this big. They're made of poplar but we'll stain them dark, get some table legs for the ends and a file cabinet to support in the middle, then have one long desk in our office for both mine and my gf's work stations and computers.
And here's progress on my TV shelf/entertainment unit made of MDF. Gonna paint it some kind of chalk paint, maybe green or grey, with natural wood slats on the back (which you can see on their own off to the left in the previous picture) to mount it to the wall. Been 2.5 fucking years of having my router on the floor below my TV and not being able to use a soundbar my gf got for us 3 Xmases ago so it's long overdue.
Getting the first coats of Danish oil on the body of my X shape.
After more than one year of no progress at all due to work and all, I'm making steady progress with my new 4 string bass these days. A few minor flaws and there is still a lot of work to do (mainly sanding, purpleheart is stupidly hard, some cleaning up of the cavities, inlay, frets, obviously finish & electronics), but so far, I really like it
That looks great, good work!
Doing a new build for a friend who sings in a local cover band. I've made more progress on this build in a week and a half than I ever have. I just love the way it looks. I ever ordered more tops from the same vendor. Black limba body, quilted redwood top, quilted sapele neck, quilt maple board, turquoise inlays. Gonna arm it with Seymour mini-humbuckers and a Hipshot bridge. Also applying cream binding. Gluing up the board today and hopefully routing for the neck pocket as well.
Some ppl here my remember this from a year or 2 back
Definished my Refinished HM strat
I wasn't really happy with the over all finish of the colour coat as i think i put way to much paint on it and got some sink back where id filled the middle pup route (i did love the neon pink though)
Atm im not sure if i'll leave it like this or repaint it when the weather gets better.
Oooft! Nice work!
Hey, it's me, ur friend...
Heh. Hey, when you're a new builder, you do a lot of shit for free, right? She plays out regularly, so I consider it free publicity (when it's done, of course).
It won't be my last freebie, so you never know!
Here's a little more progress on the above build.
I can't believe that's what that wood looks like WITHOUT a finish. Amazing.
