This week I’ll show you how to make the stacked neck blank for the acoustic guitar build. Then, tips on using a portable AC unit in the garage, and how to buy a great dust mask. Wrapping up, there is a great looking woodworking gallery of pics from the site. Enjoy.
How to Make an Acoustic Guitar
In the series, How to Make an Acoustic Guitar Part Twenty goes into making the stacked neck. This is a great way to make a guitar neck, and you can use this process for any guitar necks you make.
The benefit to this method is that you do not have to fuss around with some of the more difficult techniques for beginners like making a scarf joint or cutting a neck from a larger piece of wood.
On top of that, the stacked neck is one of the best construction methods, and makes a great looking neck. You get all of the benefits of saving wood and making a laminated neck, but you get all of the beauty too.
If you have been hesitant about making a guitar neck, this is the post for you.
Using a Portable AC for the Garage
In 7 Tips on Using a Portable Air Conditioning Unit in the Garage, I’ll show you several ways you can cool down your garage without spending a fortune.
Portable AC units are everywhere now, and you can bring the cold air right to you. This is a huge advantage over using a wall or window unit, and you don’t spend that much more.
With these great tips, you can be sure you are getting the best unit you can get, and also using it in a way that will provide the most cold air. There is more to the task than buying it and plugging it in.
I made some mistakes early in my air conditioning adventure for my old shop. I’ll talk about those, and help you avoid the same problems.
The Best Dust Mask for Woodworking
In How to Pick the Best Dust Mask for Woodworking, I’ll show you several great tips and tricks for picking out the best dust mask you can.
Woodworking creates a lot of dust. If you plan on woodworking for a while, you need to have a way of protecting yourself from as much airborne dust as you can.
This is where the dust mask comes in, and you really need to read this post if you are not using a mask right now.
You definitely need to protect your health, and a dust mask is a good first step.
Woodworking Picture Gallery
Finally, I have another Woodworking Gallery filled with fun pictures from the site that you can browse through and enjoy.
