Tips for Bracing Your Acoustic Guitar
In 5 Best Tips for Bracing Your Acoustic Guitar, you’ll learn the simple way to get through the bracing and carving process without losing your mind. In the beginning, the bracing can be stressful, but it does not have to be.
If you follow these tips, you can have a pleasant experience that is not filled with worry or doubt. I’ll show you everything you need to know, and your guitar will be better for it.
Choosing a Woodworking Vise
In How to Choose Your Woodworking Bench Vise, you’ll learn some of the things you need to look out for when selecting a vise. There are so many different options out there that it can be overwhelming. In this guide, you’ll be able to clearly see what you really need.
Once you have the perfect vise in your shop, it will be like having an assistant that doesn’t talk back, and doesn’t need to eat or be paid. It’s a third hand, and it will make you far more productive.
Mixing Shellac + Chart
In Mixing Shellac Flakes Plus Mixing Chart, you’ll learn the simplest way to mix shellac. This is more about the proportions than anything else, and when you see the chart, you’ll understand why you don’t even need it.

The ratios of shellac to alcohol can be sometimes tough to remember. In this proportion however, it is very easy, and you’ll never need a chart again because you’ll be able to do the math in your head.
Using Smaller Dust Collectors
In 12 Huge Reasons to Buy Several Smaller Dust Collectors you’ll learn the big advantages to going small when it comes to your dust collection. A single giant unit is not always the best choice for your shop. Sometimes, you can do better with several smaller units.
This is the case for using multiple smaller units rather than one big unit, and it can not only save you money, but it can also save you time because you don’t have to run all of that piping around the shop.
Framing a Mirror on the Wall
In How to Frame a Mirror With Wood you’ll learn the super easy trick to taking a mirror that you already have hanging on a wall in your home, and give it a brand new look with a fancy frame.
This is an easy process, and you don’t even have to remove the mirror from the wall. You can elevate the look of those builder grade mirrors in your home, and all for the cost of some wood and a little bit of your time.
Finally, another woodworking gallery filled with pictures from the site that are sure to inspire you to get out into the shop and start making some sawdust of your own.
