Soya... that.... is a really freaking good idea.....
That seems WAY more useful than the spindle sander i'm using.
Well the downside is the radius can't be changed on the end, so I'll still have to use a smaller spindle on a drill press to get inside of a super strat style body.
I was going to post a bunch of pictures last night but I guess I can't embed pictures from Google Photos like I thought.
Anyway, I finally finished my desk and set it up in my office last night. Seems pretty damned sturdy and I like it! Minimalist, mostly nice looking, has a footrest, even uses machine screws and T nuts like all the best guitars. I need to find a more reliable way to do lap joints for this middle X's, or maybe just not try to route them out when it's "warm" in December (-5 C) and take smaller passes and test fit before finishing.
Could make them separate pieces and use biscuits and glue to join them also.
I used dowels to join the outsides and the X's together. I thought about biscuits but didn't have access to a tool.
Has anybody tried driving them out from the top with a drift pin?
Scored this piece of Buckeye off eBay. Could not resist. About half way through my bass project, but planning out the next couple of guitars (6 string NT for sure, another 7, 5 string MS bass, and possibly an 8). I'll see if I can get a good picture of all the pieces together to figure out what to use where.
Have this BE and Amboyna Burl tops, Ash and Black Limba bodies, assorted fret boards (PH, PME x2, Ziricote, Gabon Ebony, Macassar Ebony), plus PH and Wenge in long sections for NT designs. Also a Cocobolo top that was going to be used on the bass but decided against it.
Not a guitar but it's for a tool that will help me finish building my CNC machine, which will help me finish the guitars I've already started.
DIY floating/breakaway torch holder for a friend's CNC plasma table:
I'm gonna leave them in there and make brass trim pieces to cover them up.
Got the wood burned body back. Now I just have to finish my cnc machine so I can make all of the brass trim pieces to finish it out.
