Lonman's Regal 200

Started this discussion. Last reply by Richard Dean Apr 27, 2018. 4 Replies

Here is the Regal. After I repaired the cracks, I felt the finish on the top needed sanded to help hide the repair and new finish. I sanded off the painted white border that was around the hole and…Continue

"Yes, I have found that there is such a thing as too hot and too cold when going back and forth. What worked best for me to use a candle to heat the score and cold water back and forth. Less longitudinal cracks and chips this way, but takes more time."

You have some great builds Lonman. Love those cases too. Been looking at your slide show.

Glad to be a friend Lonman. Thanks for asking. .. Dave

Hello Lonman, since you do well to use no chipwood. Plywood boards (I do not know the word for it) are much more stable and lighter. They are available in our birch beech poplar and maple. I had chosen birch. Yours Schorsch

Hi Lonman, sorry iforgot it because I was in hurry. Look at my side, I added two pics of the case. Greetings

I saw your question about techniques for photos.  I've had good luck with water slide paper.  This essentially lets you make a decal.  You find your image, maybe edit the photo, then print onto the water slide paper.  It comes in both laser and ink jet varieties.  You then spray it with clear acrylic.  When it's dry, soak the paper in water briefly, then slide the picture  off the backing onto the box.

I made a uke this way.

Cheers mate for your comments on the truss rod cover and jack socket - i was given a bit of pearloid sheet - but i would not know where to buy it from - it's propper use was for a new outer skin on a drum kit - i guess you could try a music store but it may be cheaper to buy a Stratocaster pearloid scratch plate and use that to make your parts from - other than that try ebay

Thanks for your kind comments also.  Yup, the builds can accumulate.  But, you know, I truly enjoy about half a dozen on a frequent basis and a half dozen more on an occasional basis.  I did sell 2 the last too weeks (and too cheaply, but I had my fun.)  And I just finished a quickie build out of scraps that is spoken for - and I hate to let it go.

You are finding some cool boxes and building some good looking builds.  Good on ya.

Punch + Pool cue

Posted on October 7, 2012 at 6:39pm 2 Comments

No parts ordered, so started yet another build from parts on hand- black punch box, pool cue, will be 3 string, fretless. somewhere in the 22-24" scale. Pool cue was interesting. Never put much thought of what type of wood the dark part of the handle is until I cut into it.  Still hard for me to tell, but it looks pretty, not walnut though. White part appears maple. Will use walnut for a nut, not sure what for a bridge. piezo pick up. Will not go thru n thru. Missed by about 1.5 inches. Pics…
