Mix equal parts: Glue, Maple, Cherry, Walnut....

Mix equal parts: Glue, Maple, Cherry, Walnut....Hey all – yet another end grain board…..a bit of a creative block going here so I find these builds a good way to break the block….But first – thanks to my friends for reaching out wondering where my new projects are…..appreciate it!Here's the build blog:1. Scrounge the bins for Maple, Cherry and Walnut2. Do not measure anything3. Glue up blanks dictated solely on the stock on hand4. Plane until flat5. Formulate plan6. Find the glue, blue tape, dozuki saw and F-clamps7. Do 2-3 glue-ups per day for 3 weeks or so with a ton of sanding between each one – noting that plan was abandoned after glue-up #28. Empty dust bin9. A bit of router table work10. TONS of sanding11. Apply mineral oil and little feet12. Realization that you will starve to death if you are planning on making a living doing things this waySo that's it – those little accent strips (9 bands of them) are also end grain, so that takes some time…..did I mention this was a LOT of glue-ups? I'm quite sure this is my new record for a single board.Note – Pic 5 is the blanks less the thin strips and Pic 6 is before the oil.Thanks for looking…......

Gibson replica

Gibson replicaI used walnut, cherry and mahogany. I used a picture of a Gibson guitar of the '50's.
I used a satin lacquer on it. It took some time in the hand sanding. I hope you enjoy looking as much as I did building it.

Improved adapters for BELT SANDING UNIT, to vertical and edge sanding.I wan't going to post this project as I presented the idea in my last post half way through the day, but since I went back and totally rebuilt the adapters, and many may not have seen it earlier in the day. I have pretty well beat this sander unit idea to death, but someone still may be want to build one. Just an idea what you can do with this project. Here are some pictures of it as an edge sander and in vertical position. Made from scrap 2 inch stock, sturdy and assembled with screws only, could use any material.For this interested on You Tube I completed this series with this final videohttps://youtu.be/9Lbp7NW2vKEI see a number have Favorited this project, you may be interested in these possibilities. I enjoy using things I make myself.Thank for staying with me on this sander project. Now I would like to get started on another model car. Only trouble is it is minus 20 C out there and the shop is kinda cold.
