Guitar Neck by Nathan Fletcher-Jones

Guitar Neck by Nathan Fletcher-Jones

This guitar neck was made from American maple and Blackwood. I used hand tools for everything except for a drill. Hand router to make the channel for the truss rod. Shaped with rasp files and then sandpaper. Fretboard was oiled with linseed and neck with nitrocellulose. Fine sanding back of nitro before waxing and polishing. This will be for a jazz master guitar.

Island Table by Bill Fitzer

Island Table by Bill Fitzer

bult with heart pine lumber salvaged from a home built in the 1860s, I thru tennoned the legs and wedged the tenons into the top. the legs were then mortise and tenoned and pinned with walnut dowels. finally a hand rubbed finish of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits and an oil based polyurathane was applied. I had to provide for wood movement of the top, so the end skirt peices have a sliding mortise and tenon to accomodate that.

100% reclaimed wood… All made with meranti from an old door recovered by a neighbour who’s a builder. Plywood for panels and shelves used to be subfloor, under laminate flooring, hence is was grubby and needed painting, (with emulsion and varnish) Mains structure finished with shellac and wax. Not without it’s challenges this one, but I’m pleased with the final result!

    So many beautiful pieces!

    Mr. Miller, that is not a tool cabinet, it is a piece of fine furniture. Pick your best place in the living room and put it there. 👏👏👏

    Ermir,
    Thank you , the joy for me is making furniture to hand down to my family. I now have a growing list. It really is so satisfying when the shellac goes on and the grain starts to standout followed by the wax best therapy going 😀
