Recycling wood

Reading someone else's post inspired me to do a little recycling.  I had an old sawhorse that I wanted to get rid of.  The wood was so beat up, it was not worth selling.  So, I recycled it.  I am thinking of making a dulcimer and a dog bowl resonator.  We shall see.

Fret-slotting jig

Posted on June 26, 2015 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

I am using a new fret-slotting jig I built based on a design from http://sixgunguitars.com/fret_slotting_jig.html

It uses a razor blade for a slot locator.  It works great!

I decided to build it after doing my first fretboard for a dulcimer stick.  It was hard to get the slots perfectly straight.  This little jig will be a real time saver.  And the quality of my fretting just went up!…
