Another week is over, and there is more to talk about. First, the guitar finally gets the binding strips glued in place. Then, I show you how to bend wood, and some great tips for using Tru Oil. Finally, another woodworking gallery filled with fun pictures from the site. Enjoy.
How to Make an Acoustic Guitar Series
In How to Make an Acoustic Guitar Part Eighteen, I’ll show you how to take those binding strips that we just made ourselves and bent, and finally glue them to the guitar body.
This is a process that can sometimes be a little difficult, but I’ll show you some tips and tricks to make it easier.
There is also a method revealed that does make the process take a little longer, but it increases your chances of success in installing the binding strips quite a bit. It also reduces the stress involved in the process, and that leads to better results too.
How to Curve Wood
In How to Curve Wood I show you five different ways that you can make wood bend to your will, and take shapes you may have never imagined before.
Bending wood is not that difficult, and there are so many different ways to do it that you are sure to find something that you can do easily.
There are methods that require very few tools, some that need heat, and some that need steam. Some don’t need anything but wood and glue. You likely have everything you need to start curving pieces of wood right in your shop, and you can get started right away.
Tips for Using Tru Oil
In 16 Helpful Tips for Using Birchwood Casey Tru Oil, I’ll show you a lot of great tips that will make you really good at applying Tru Oil. If you have never used this product before, you are in for a treat.
This is one of the easiest finishes to use, and you can look like a pro without much practice at all.
Applying the finish is easy on the basic level. However, when you add in some tips, you can take the process to a really high level with just a couple small adjustments. It’s not about doing anything huge, but it’s about doing a few small things really well.
In this week’s Woodworking Gallery Post, I collected several pictures from the site, and put them all together in a nice looking gallery for you to enjoy.
If you have any questions about the week in review, please Post a Question in the Q&A Forum and I’ll be glad to help. Happy building.
