Tung oil on old wood boxes, with and without Photos

Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Craig Dec 30, 2017. 4 Replies

I read a ton of the old threads about finishing the old boxes. I had just cut a 3" hole out of an old box for the 3" speaker and I thought, hey, I can do the test. Here it is:…Continue

Paul Cezanne replied to Roland Wood's discussion Sting Issues
"I was tuning up a string, (low C from a cello string) and I was E-flat and going upwards and I got to thinking. Man, I've got a ways to go. So I found a "cello tuning" video on YouTube and, yeah, I was going for the octave above! So…"

"I bought that exact same setup from Michael's for a project this summer and I was sloppy and the saw cut the aluminum miter box! So be careful..."

Paul Cezanne replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Oh, this is just cello strings, No super tall bridge like my cello and it won't be bowable. Flat fretboard. But yeah, I'm getting pumped about it. But its barely a cello. Just think of it as a CBG tuned deep and low."

Paul Cezanne replied to Roland Wood's discussion Headstock angle, help?
"If you're not scarfing, aren't you cutting away some wood somewhere, and isn't that harder?"

Paul Cezanne replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Drilled the headstock for tuners. The big hole is for the bass tuner. (I'm using Cello strings and bass string is big.) Also filed a grove for the nut. That's a 5/16ths bolt and it is way too big, the action is way too high. This will be…"

Paul Cezanne replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Oh, yeah, I know what you mean. I did it that way, not the other way, because I'm using a bolt, not a threaded rod, and the bolt head and the nut on the end of the bolt, have to clear the wide part of the headstock. The scale is 27.5" and…"

Paul Cezanne replied to Paul Cezanne's discussion Split while drilling
"Drilled my first holes today, not on this amp, but on a maple headstock. Sweet bits!"

Paul Cezanne replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Worked on the headstock for my cello-bo. That's my first scarf joint. I got awfully fancy but I like how it turned out. Well, almost, there is awesome grain on the backside but I cut it upside down left handed backwards... The two holes are,…"

Paul Cezanne replied to Roland Wood's discussion Headstock angle, help?
"Really, just do what Taff says. I feared making my angled headstock and it was easy! Ok, I had a devil of time gluing it but I think I spent more time worrying about it than making it. Have fun!"

Paul Cezanne replied to Roland Wood's discussion Fretboard Material?
"I bought a Zona 35-380 dovetail saw from Gitty. 18 teeth per inch, sharp, and a .20 kerf...just right for med./med. frets from Gitty. Stays sharp for @ 15 fretboards worth of slotting in my hands. What happens after 15 fretboards? Do you buy a new…"

MadGomer replied to Paul Cezanne's discussion Split while drilling
"The forstner bits will make a nice clean hole.  Use a backup board, don't spin the bits too fast, and take your time."

"I had just cut a 3" hole with a hole saw and it went fine! The good news is I got my father-in-law's forstner bits this weekend."

JL replied to Paul Cezanne's discussion Split while drilling
"Hole saws also work better than spade bits, again as long as you have some scrap underneath to support it."

Paul Cezanne replied to Roland Wood's discussion Fretboard Material?
"I'm about to cut my first one. Well, not really, but I will before Spring. So I really don't have any advice except about the "being scared" part, because that reminds me of an old story about taking your Jeep off-road for the…"

Paul Cezanne replied to Rick's discussion Easy Scarf Joint on Miter saw.
"I've been wresting with ways to get the strings off the nut for my cello-bo and its been a hack and a kludge and broken strings. All of this because I didn't think i had the skills to make that "Bent neck thingee." And I check…"
