Thanks for all the tips. I'll practice on scrap first to get the hang of it.
Thanks! Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best, right?
Nice work Brian. It's coming together nice and I'm noticing more and more details edging towards a future LP build if I'm not mistaken really like that fretboard wood to. How do you find it reacts to the router? Is it super tough like ebony or other rosewoods?
its great to see all the diversity in all the builds keep up the good work
That's a beauty of a fretboard, Brian. This looks great!
Thanks Kevin! There will definitely be LP builds in this guy's future.
It routes nicely. It's a very hard and dense wood. Mostly just little chips off the router.
It definitely is! Right back at ya Jim!
Thanks Phil. The board caught my eye at the store. I need a better bandsaw though to make more efficient use of woods like this.
This is great - we've got the cable guy responding to the plumber And they're both building guitars. That's why, if you're having your house remodeled, it's going to be "2 more weeks".
I love this place
One of my favorite tools!
That is going to be a beautiful fretboard!
Cable guys and plumbers living in harmony... It's a beautiful thing...
Cool! You gonna use one on your build?
Thanks Rob! I've been spending the last couple nights getting a radius jig together for it.
You'll love that shave! When I built mine, I spent an afternoon turning a 4x4 into a 2" dowel. It's easy to lose yourself working with one.
Hey Chris, yeah, I'm looking forward to working with it. It's not an expensive one, but when I tried it on some scrap it did what it was supposed to.
Waiting on parts so I built this. I put removable radius blocks on it so if I want to route a different radius I just need to change the blocks. I used James' drawing to build it (thanks James).
Just have to put some blocking on the base to hold it up a bit. Plus I'll probably throw some stops on the ends to prevent falling off the ends of the rails.
