Re: Straightening framing timbers

One of the other things we do in guitar building is "sticker" the wood when we stack it....we use sticks between layers to allow at least 1/2" between for proper airflow. What happens when you don't is that moisture causes the exposed wood to swell while the unexposed side doesn't. If you can, try l...

Re: Malahini in Missouri

Sometimes, it's easier to use a wood flour and titebond glue mix for something like that, though it is not as "uniform" a color as tinted epoxy. I have also done this with tinted lacquer sticks used for gap filling. Unfortunately, that can shrink over time, especially if it is very deep. I really li...

Re: Barrel Back Second Layer

I bet laying a towel or rag over the exhaust would be enough to capture the atomized oil. Be careful....that could affect your finishing. Anyway, looks great! I'm jealous!

Re: Plywood frames?

I learned the hard way about combining hard and super hard woods, such as maple and mahogany. The mahogany shrinks as it ages at a far different rate than maple will. I am thinking that, If I move forward with my idea, I would stabilize with cloth just like the rest of the hull...this would prevent ...

Re: Plywood frames?

I guess I am not as far along in vocab yet, and misunderstood coverboards....flamed maple is maple with waves in it, somewhat translucent or shimmering, as in the electric body below (as opposed to the grain lines) PA280044.JPG 'hog is Mahogany.... I was thinking of doing a hull with all mahogany, a...

Re: Sawford's Zip Build

One of the biggest issues in guitar building is bending the sides. Most often, cracks will occur in sides being bent without any support behind them, as when bending on a pipe. I built a lightbulb side bender which works very well, though I think it has nothing to do with the bulbs. What does make a...

Re: Plywood frames?

Can't wait to see it, Grandpa, that's exactly the thought I had in mind for my Key Largo/Riviera (whichever and whenever it gets started). All 'hog, with flamed maple covering boards, and 'hog caulk lines was what I was thinking. I'll be keepin my eye on this one.
