In time for Spring
Well, it's not a guitar, but I use it for building guitars.
This is my home built drum sander.
The middle deck it adjustable, then there is the stationary top surface for basic flat scuff sanding with the drum, then there is the end disk sander.
The disk sander table and the main sanding deck are removable to make a smaller storage footprint.
Some recycling happening in there too, that's Toyota MR2 scissor jack stuck in there to lift the sanding deck.
This is some really old 2" thick wood from a fallen barn out here in western New York... should be good for the sinuses .
Barncasters are totally cool
No S#!% lol that's killer man! Love your work
I did a barncaster (shut up barncaster) a few years ago that turned out decent... got the itch again...umm
Where does the vacuum hook up to that?
Intensley, That is some sweet drum sander engineering.
Yup That is a great pile of barnwood Nutslot sir!
Well i just had to do it...
Walnut under some sketchy clamping
So Far So Good
Lying on top of the single ply blackguard. Close enough for a first run.
Didn't even bleed... much.
you just caused a small psychic disturbance in England nutslut
nosmo, great question, but I just squint my eyes and hold my breathe.
Just kidding, well - partly kidding.
There will be 3 separate vacuum points.
The first is in place. It pulls dust when I'm using the main adjustable deck (adjustable deck has been removed in this first photo).
It mounts over the opening in the very top, so it was an easy one to set up. just a few short screws hold it in place, so it's fast to swap.
The next will be added to the Disc sander.
The last will be added for use when the adjustable deck is not being used, but the top deck is.
It will be a "V" shape collector that mounts under the upper deck and pulls dust down and away.
Getting started on an matching rear access cover route starting with an over thick piece of ambrosia maple that will have a thick walnut top.
Since I will run it thru a planer I only need to route down a 1/4" far enough around the future cover to get at it with a flush saw. The excess thickness also allows me to not worry about being neat. Everything sent thru the planer and I think the cover is going to match up nicely
Fourteen or so coats. Getting close
Finishing up an LP build to give to a domestic violence charity auction. Just setting the nut.
The other day I made this little square:
Except, it isn't "square."
So what is it? It's a specialized tool for laying out the fret slots on a Tele or Strat neck. The angle is "just so" to be smack on for scribing a fret slot.
Should come in handy.
I recognize that jig in the background.
That's a Bill Scheltema Neck Carve Jig isn't it?
I built one a LONG time ago from his video.
Worked great on one side. Idea and engineering were so logical, but i could not get it completely correct.
Made a few pucks for the different carves too..
Still in the shop i guess. I haven't noticed it in a while though.. hehe

Cool!!! Wait for it Stewmac will sell it soon for $145.99
Yes it is. I love that jig. I have it dialed in for tele necks. As you can see.
Oh, I bet they can keep it under 50 bucks! We'll have to keep our eye out for it to show up.
Needed a foot switch for vibrato / reverb that wasn't hardwired to the box. Bought a few stomp box cases, some DPDT latching switches, stereo Jack's, LEDs , LED holders and power jacks.
Soldered it all together (along with a bit of hot glue on the back of the LED holders) and voila
Got my fret board and wire from LMI (thanks for the tip, Freeman). They shipped the wire in a loop, about 10" diameter (see photo).
Should I still build a fret wire bender and properly radius it? Seems that it might sorta work as is.
Also picked up one of those the ever-popular Rigid oscillating spindle sanders, I think I'll name him Ross.
