How to Make an Acoustic Guitar Part Three

How-to-Make-an-Acoustic-Guitar-Series---Part-Three---Making-the-RosetteIn How to Make an Acoustic Guitar – Part Three – The Rosette, you will learn the exact process for making a three ring rosette with a Dremel tool.

This is a super easy process, and you can make a professional looking rosette very quickly.

The beauty of this tutorial is that you don’t need a lot of tools or fancy equipment. A Dremel tool is a common woodworking tool, and it’s not a million dollars.

You can also use the same tool for other parts in the guitar making process, so it’s not a one trick pony either. If you have been avoiding rosettes, you don’t have an excuse any more. This is super easy, and you need to check it out.

Most of you that rush all the time will not read the post, and that’s ok. I’m sure you are too busy.

However, for those of you that are ready to open up to slowing down, and want to discover how it can actually improve your speed in the end, this is for you.

I was guilty of this for a long time. Now that I can see the light, and I know better (which took a lot of time to teach myself) I make sure to share this as much as I can. You will actually be faster in the end if you slow down and take a practice break. 

Hopefully by now you are curious enough to take a look…if you have the time that is. 

How to Make a Wood and Epoxy Ring With InLace Nuggets

How-to-Make-a-Wood-and-Epoxy-Ring-with-Inlace-Nuggets-on-the-latheThe tutorial this week is on How to Make a Wood and Epoxy Ring With InLace Nuggets, and it’s a really cool looking design. This is a half and half ring, with one side being wood and the other side being resin and additives.

If you are new to working with resin, the tutorial is very easy to follow, and you can get started right away. It’s a fun process, and you can make a lot of interesting designs and professional looks with the epoxy.

Even though this tutorial is for a specific ring, you can use the same techniques on any other style. You can take the instructions and apply them to your own designs, and add the technique very easily.

It’s not about duplicating my design unless you want to. All of my tutorials, this one included, can be applied to other projects easily, and you will love the results. Happy building.
