Jeez - I can barely build a sandwich.
Great job !
I often stain my paper with tea or coffee. To get the uneven affects I'll use my air brush to fan in darker areas.
This is my other hobby
Great work everyone!
I make everything from vintage airplane and boat restoration parts to furniture. When you're a hobbyist who works for free it is very easy to find projects.
Here is a photo of a prop I made for an aviation museum.
Not a guitar but guitar related. This is a short stack I built last year to house a Vox AC4TV and a 12" Eminence. Maple with a pine baffle and Tru Oil finish.
There are some mighty talented people on this here board... y'all are so much more than just guitar players.
I am duly impress, and in awe of your talents.
This started out as a hobby some 15 years ago. It's now my day job. These are a sampling of the projects I've worked on in my 11 year history with my current employer as an Video Editor and 2D/3D Animator.
These are on my personal YouTube channel and no company name or link is present.
I just browsed back thru this thread. I'm speechless. The level of talent and diverse interests is just staggering. The fact that all are tied together by an interest in something as mainstream as guitars really surprises me. Or, maybe it doesn't. The guitar is so many things to so many people.
As much as I have been thrilled to be a part of the guitar building family that is TDPRI, I'm now beyond proud and knowing the depth of the talent here, I'll never look at the build threads in quite the same way.
Well done all!!! Many thanks to chillman for kicking this off.
I used to build furniture back in the disco era but once I started to build guitars, well that took over much of my building time. Here is my homemade cnc router that I designed and built. I machined my own linear bearings which I though was pretty cool at the time. I don't use it any more as I developed a controller issue and it was just easier to buy one than make another. This cranked out a lot of those early pine bodies.
One of these days...if I continue to build guitars, CNC will be the way to go.
Not me. If you're going to build guitars, I say build guitars.
Come on Jack ....holding onto a router sitting on an old template is hardly building a guitar.... . The only difference between a cnc and that template method is I don't have to hold onto the router with my hands. It's an electronic template...yeah...that's it..
I glue up my blanks, plane them down, drill the holes, drill the ferrule holes, sand, roundover on the router table just like everybody else..... I even bandsaw the body out of the waste and flush trim the last .10 of wood that I leave at the bottom.
It's not like the Jetsons show yet....LOL.
10 years from now, every woodworker that wants one will be able to have one...just like a router is now.
Nice work, Mark.
Mine did have the link but I'm so indisposed to working on that kind of thing I couldn't even be bothered opening up the edit software to remove the relevant bits off the end of it!!
fantastic job WWI ?what airplane?
It is remarkable how the pilots manage to fly their airplanes with no parachutes,exposed to all weather conditions, with non variable pitch props...
Just finished these. They are teaching aids for learning how to age white tail deer using their lower jaw.
This one was a 4 foot version of a Sopwith Pup but with U.S. rotation. The museum has it mounted on a small 28hp Lawrance from a 1918 Breese Penguin.
Two of us restored the majority of the reciprocating engines for the museum. I did the work on the wood props.
But nowadays I'm mostly busy with these little guys,
Here's some fishing poles I've built , from ultra lights for Brookies to my bass rods for Largemouth and Smallies. I shape the cork rings for the grips on a threaded rod in my drill with sandpaper , wind the ferrules and guides and epoxy them , then they go on a rod rotisserie and turn slowly for about 8 hours till the epoxy sets up , keeps drips from forming on the wraps .
