    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...

    Let's Play "What Would You Charge"

    Thread Starter: Steve Clarkson

    Cleaning Hand Stitched Rasps

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    I have two Auriou rasps I used to shape some Gabon ebony. Now many of the stitches are clogged with ebony. With most woods, I can tap the tool on the bench or take a stiff brush and that clears the waste out. But not with this wood. How do you clean out the stitches without clearing each one...
