Lonman's Regal 200

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

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

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

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…
