Thanks guys. Encouragement is always welcome!
Was not happy with the way the frets were sitting on the fretboard. Did not seem to sit all the way down at the edges. Made the decision to pull em all out and re-sand the fretboard to 10.5 degrees and do it again. But first I needed to make a sanding block. Broke out the jig that swings like a pendulum and set it for 10.5 and made the block.
Re-sanded and re-fretted and much happier with the results now.
Next up, final sanding and start the finish.
Hey that's a cool way to make a sanding block! Consider that idea stolen.
Steal away. I had not seen one prior to building mine, but I'm sure others have something similar out there. I've used it to make some 9.5 and now 10.5 radius blocks. Works well and fairly easy to add new radius by just drilling holes at the appropriate height. Like all jigs it would need tweaking based on your router and how you construct it. I actually made it as and add on to the jig(I forget whose I copied ) that I used to radius a neck by sliding the neck past a router mounted on sliding arch.
We have some color!
And the color is looking good!
Has a nice shine now...
Very very cool sunburst.
Clip of my son playing the new bass...
btw... how do you get the video to show above instead of just the link??
Wow beautiful bass.Your son must be very happy.He plays good too!!
I'm real happy with it. Generally my artistic skills are pretty rough, but this one turned out great.
Very impressive work, thanks for sharing!
Very nice work, I would like to try this myself. Curious about the inlay work, could you show a photo of the edge of the fretboard? I would like to see how that looks, and did you include any side dots?
No side dots. I'll post a. Pic later when I get home. Then intention was for the inlays to show all the way from top to bottom and sides, which they do. They were supposed to serve as the side dots as well.. I probably should have made them a little deeper to show more. After I radiused the board not as much showed as I wanted.
Here you are:
Just copy the letters and symbols after the equal mark from the youtube link you want to post.
Go at the "Go advance " message board and click on the Youtube window that you can see above the message board.
Paste the symbols from Youtube at the open window and..done.
Nice Bass build.
Thanks Nick! I was pasting in the whole link without success.
Jackcg, here is sides of the neck.... like I said before, I think I should have made the inlays about 1/8th deeper......
