    Electric Bass Guitar Build

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    My SO wants a bass guitar. And I'm getting bored watching the lacquer cure on the other guitar. :) I took some 1:1 scaled drawings of bass guitars, glued them to 1/4" MDF, and started cutting templates. The neck and back are completed, with the exception of the neck heel. I don't want to cut...

    Official 2015 MLB Thread

    Thread Starter: Kent A Bathurst

    Verlander is on the DL. Nathan is also. Porcello with the BoSox. Both Fister and Scherzer throwing for the Senators. That is the closer and 4 starters from 2 years ago; closer and 2 Cy Young starters from last year. What's that mean? Detroit is 8-1 - best record in MLB. Only one run off...

    Track saw attraction???

    Thread Starter: Henry Kramer

    I see an awful lot of posts about track saws. I wish that someone would explain the fascination with them because I am not seeing it. I understand that they are primarily used on ripping and cross-cutting sheets of plywood. Now muscling a sheet of plywood onto my table saw is not the most desirable...

    Are carpenters a dying breed?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    They don't teach it in school anymore hardly, which makes me wonder if this industry is in high demand. I've always kept this as a hobby, but I've been using power tools since I was 12. I'm 26 now. Is there good money in this industry?

    12x30 Workshop About To Become A Reality

    Thread Starter: Steve Kinnaird

    I started buying wood working tools about 3 years ago and planned on converting a 12 x 20 ft space in our 1 car garage into a workshop. Well, as we all know plans can change. My son and his 2 kids (our grandchildren) needed a place to stay after his divorce and the garage became an over stuffed...

    Let's Play "What Would You Charge"

    Thread Starter: Steve Clarkson

    Some engravers are all over the place with what they will charge to do a job.....one guy charges $1 and another charges $3. We all have our own calculation ($2/min or material cost times three, etc). If you charge too little, eventually you will go out of business. If you charge too much,...
