BluesBlooded second build. (video)

Hi Everyone,

They are so many builds going around here its impossible to keep up reading them all and its not even build challenge season. Yet, I'm going to add another thread to the bulk. Sorry

My goals for this second build are:

-Make a guitar from a plan (I bought ready made template for my first one)
-Try something not to common
-Set neck
-Angled headstock
-Humbuckers
-Make my own fretboard
-Shape the neck manually
-Press the frets in.
-Inlay a logo
-Spray a finish.


I make videos of my builds. They are silent. The text is in french, but I added English subtitles. So remember to turn them on.

In this first video, I show the wood I will use for the body and the jigs I made.

1-Fret slot jig
2-Fretboard radius jig
3-Radiused sanding block.

Here we go!



Select 1080p, full screen and enjoy!

Body shaping

In this video, I prepare the wood, plane, joint, glue, mark, cut and shape the body.

At last, I let my ROSS take control and trow my perfectly shaped body on the table. Good thing the ross was oriented this way, otherwise it would have thrown it on the floor

Wow! Can you put this last video over in the "DIY tool shed" there's a thread started that's nothing but scarf joint jigs and fixtures and you have a few really nice ones here.

Hey BluesBlooded. C'est tres interessant! Some great jigs there. I'll be following this one, too. Thanks for making it a video. It captures, pour moi, details that photos don't capture as well.

Neck templates

In this video I create my second set of neck templates.

The first one which you will catch a glare at the beginning did not work properly. The integrated tenon was not perfectly straight and symetric on both sides.

Furthermore, the neck blank was a bit short. I decided to change my approach and do the tenon in two stages instead of one.

Remember to turn on the caption for english subtitle

resuscitation

Many of the challengers are plowing through another build right after their challenge builds.

Did not want too feel apart so I decided I could spend some quality outdoor workshop time on resuscitating this build.

But I will revisit some of the work previously done.

The neck was too short and the tenon was crap.

The first body I made for this build is from the same Douglas Pine I did my challenge build and I find it's too soft.

This is the original plan



Now that I have completed two guitars, I'm confident I can spend some money on nice woods and try something different. So I purchased Mahogany for the body and some maple for the top.

I will also change the plans to use an angled neck pocket with longer tenon.

I also want to try to wind my own pickups.

So today was wood buying day

Got this great piece of Mahogany 8/4 - 8 x 73 inches. Enough for two bodies





Then this nice chunk of maple 8/4 - 9 x 81 inches and it looks like it will make nice figured tops







Oh yeah, I will make two, one for me, one for my nephew. I'm catching the "Give a Guitar Bug" too!

I'll use more pictures and less video has they are too time consuming to make and prevents me to do periodic updates.

Note that winter is coming in a few months, so the build won't be completed before next spring. After the challenge, I want to go at my own pace. No pressure whatsoever.

Hope you will enjoy!

Cool design, and some nice wood to make it from, too. I look forward to seeing it come together.

Yep, I'm about to jump back in with another build myself. I'm finalizing the details now and will likely start a thread on it in the next week or so.

Yeah, if you consider jointing, flattening, planing, smoothing, cutting, and sanding ploughing for two days work.. To be fair, three of the steps used my handplane..

Thanks Allan, I will be following your new build with interest. Really loved your challenge build.

It's great that you are using hand planes. I find that they're the best for precision work. If you don't have a shooting board, you should consider making one. It's simple to make and very useful with a plane.
