Re: Heart Inlay Cross

Thanks Scott. I don't seem to have any bleeding problem with padauk like you seem to. I sanded the parts individually and always spray three coats of Minwax clear semi-gloss polyurethane on everything. Sometimes if there is a lot of sanding powder left, I save it in Zip-lock sandwich bags for future...

Re: Heart Inlay Cross

I cut each piece of wood one at a time. The sheet is stuck to the MDF spoil board with a piece double side tape at the ends and middle. A 1/16" hole is drilled through the wood at each corner and two in the middle edges of the wood. A 5/8" flat head nail is used to fasten the wood to the spoil board...

Heart Inlay Cross

I was thinking of a new idea for using up some 1/8" Padauk and 1/4" Mahogany strips that were 2" wide and 24" long one day and came up with a new version of the Heart theme Cross. I found an outline I liked online and proceeded to figure out what to do with it. The results are 1-3/4" wide by 3" tall...

Re: Maya Calendar on refurbished door

Looks great. Thanks for sharing. Good way to repurpose the old door and make it attractive. Very nicely carved project. Looks good on a door. Technically, if you do a web search for Aztec Sun Stone Calendar you will find this design that was carved in stone. Many of my past projects from yo-yo to P...

Re: Rheasville Truck and Auto Sign

That is awesome. My son wants me to make him a Les Paul out of some black limba . I am very nervous about doing it. Can’t wait to hear how it sounds. Hope you & your family have very merry Christmas. You can find some CAD files online for the body shape and information on making the neck. There is ...

Best hubcap sign ever! Merry Christmas, Richard! Thanks Michael, Merry Christmas to you also. I have been mostly quiet on these forums again this summer due to all the work I have done for my friend's new restaurant. He is as busy as the pandemic laws will allow and has a very attractive place for ...

Re: Rheasville Truck and Auto Sign

That is way cool. Great job! How does it sound? Thanks for sharing It sounds a little more mellow than my salad bowl guitars with the 1/8" thick birch plywood top panels, due to the larger diameter and thicker panel. It still has more of a banjo like sound than an acoustic guitar. Sustain is still ...

Rheasville Truck and Auto Sign

A local dealer in used trucks and automobiles that has seen some of my strange guitars asked if I could make one with a hubcap. My answer was "Of course, but I can't guarantee how well it sounds. Moon hubcaps are popular for this kind of thing". He said that it was to be primarily a wall sign for hi...

Re: ideas for slab of wood

Recently, the Commander of the local American Legion Post 38 asked if I could make an 11" diameter logo for the podium used in our meetings and other events. Currently, there is a color printed paper sheet of the logo between two 1/8" sheets of acrylic (or Lexan) mounted with screws. He is not impre...

Re: Paradise Box Variation

Beautiful Paradise Box work Dan! I haven't used walnut on any of my projects but I have a bunch of old rough cut lumber that would have to be band sawed and surface planed and joined before doing anything with it. I am a big fan of Celtic knots, as can be seen in my many versions of this box and oth...

Re: Open Vectors In The Design Will Not Weld

I just now created this example that shows the weave feature, and also has a cross section shape other than round. The triquetra and circle itself is a single closed vector. It was created by drawing three larger circles and one smaller circle. Then the three larger circles are cut at the crossings ...
