the other side
cut it off on the bandsaw
I didn't feel like making the effort to figure out how to rig up a holding device to machine the backside so I drilled almost straight through the back with a 3/8" twist drill. Then I used my step drill to bore down the 3/8" hole, and start a path for the 3/4" forstner on the drill press. Surprisingly...the test piece all worked out. I may redo this a bit deeper though.
OK now you have my attention. I have been thinking of various ways to do this but never considered a bezel made of wood.
It was easy with a good quality forstner on the back side, I'm not sure that a cheapie would have done it as nicely.
That is awesome! Can't say I've seen one of those yet...
Thanks... I think I did my first one with my popsicle -stick- caster if I remember correctly.
Very nice touch!!!
Thanks Nick...pretty soon you'll be doing that kind of stuff too.
I redid the drawing and part. It's easy enough to do with 3-D CAD. This time I could get the lock washer in there too. I kind of felt like I was making wooden tires for a 60's era slot car. I remember buying these things called silicone slicks for my La Cuccaracca.
Cool jack cup.
Saturate the cup in CA and it should be as strong as anything! Love the look!
Thanks. It's pretty robust as it is.
I really love the creativity you are demonstrating in this build. Lot's of awesome ideas!
Looks magnificent. What's the budget up to?
Thanks. You get creative when you need a finish material and can't afford to spend any money.
Thank you. I think the last figure was 64.74 and I added a jack. I paid less than 2 dollars in a bulk purchase years ago that I'm still using, but I'll call it $2. and say $1 for pickguard and plate screws. So we are at $67.74.
This isn't a bad price if you have amazon prime:
That's great! Nice work!
I decided to make a couple walnut knobs since I'm in a walnut theme.
I milled a hole in a piece of pine as a hole alignment fixture.
They just need some sanding and some finish...
