Dumped and Damaged Classical Guitar Restoration

Dumped and Damaged Classical Guitar RestorationHi All,
Firstly apologies for not being so involved lately.
As most know I sold my place and along with it went the upstairs woodshop. Some also know that I have been learning to play Guitar.So, this Guitar I found in a furniture rubbish pile on the street in Hong Kong, the Guitar was within seconds of being loaded into a Furniture Rubbish removal truck.I, fortunately, rescued it and took it home for refurbishment.The most significant things about this project are:A) I found this Guitar, I did not buy it, It was someone elses RubbishB) I had to set up a makeshift Luthiers workshop in my bedroom on the 10th floor Hong Kong flatC) With the back of the guitar delamination I developed an idea to connect a straw to a syringe so I could inject glue down deep into the back of the guitar without making the delamination worse.(see pics)I made a you tube video on the restoration, if you have a spare three minutes and are interested click here for the YouTube link.The youtube video link also here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC4WND7YJdUAnd below some comparison shots of before and after.Cheers
Anthony

Queen bed inspired by Russell Hall design

Furnished content.

Queen bed inspired by Russell Hall designThis bed was inspired by an article by Russell Hall in Taunton's Home Furniture magazine (Nov 1997 issue) – see 1st picture. I liked the creative use of the live edge slab and the curved asian styling.The head board and foot board feature consecutive slices made from a walnut slab. I had to cut the slab in half horizontally, re-saw the two pieces then glue them back together (glue line is nearly invisible).Frame pieces are made from alder. Joinery is mostly floating tenons (Dominos). I used Rockler's bed rail connection system that allows invisible, strong connection of the side rails.

French Cleat Holder for Dedusting Remote Controls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


French Cleat Holder for Dedusting Remote ControlsI wanted to make a holder for both a new SuperMax (Laguna) air filtration unit, as well as a holder for the controller to the pre-existing cyclone dedusting system that takes care of my tools.The Supermax's remote control needs to have a line of sight (IR) to control the unit, whereas the cyclone dedusting is radio controlled and therefore can be left inside the French Cleat holder when turning the unit on/off. I just made a hole in the front and rounded it over with a router so I can depress the button and see the red led light.At first I was going to have the two remotes arranged side by side, but then I decided to stack the two units on top of each other to decrease the space used on the French Cleat. I finished the remote holder with a coat of Danish Oil.I wanted to get this project done quickly before I lost thetwo remotes forever in a pile of debris. The pics show the end result and I hope this post is a usefulidea for someone looking to do something similar for their remotes.I can't give a review on the SuperMax as I haven't used it too much, but so far I think it's working well, it's pretty quiet and can move the air in the shop at 3 different speeds.
