    Should I Buy One?

    I have one of these planners, and like it. I've used it just as in that picture. I don't have a drum sander, so I used this planner to bring the thickness of sides, fronts and backs down to a reasonable level for sanding. I taped the material to a flat board with double sided carpenter's tape. I...

    Hit a nail

    That's too bad, a real bummer! I run a metal detector over any questionable wood I use. If you search " Woodworker's metal detector" on ebay, you'll find one by Cen-Tech for $39. regards Ed

    Nice work Sam. Looks good. I just started on a cigar box Ukulele for my son-in-law. I just built him a Tenor uku, and wanted to make him a cigar box uke that he can take when they travel. I'm using a cigar box I bought on ebay. I have a 13.5" fret board for it. Seeing your fine job has got me...

    My first build

    It's difficult making an instrument not knowing how to play. But it's not in the cards for me. Attempts in the past have been horrible failures. My dad used to say I should play tenor, and solo. "Ten or 15 miles away, and so low we don't hear you. And you should be on stage, there's one leaving...

    My first build

    Thank you. My son-in-law loved it, and played it for me. I am not a musician and don't play any instruments. To hear music from an instrument that I made was a very happy moment for me. Ed

    My first build

    It's getting the job done, that's what's important. That's a good Idea. It's what I would like, to be able to make fixtures like you do. Wood doesn't cut it for some things. Ed

    My first build

    Thanks Mike, I would like to hear it played also. I don't play. I only picked it enough to tune it. When My son-in-law plays it I will get to hear it. The jury is still out. 😂 Ed
