Carpentry as Hobby anyone?
« on: August 07, 2014, 12:38:16 PM »
Im planning to take up carpentry as a precursor towards trying to build guitars. I may laso want to delve into electronics and stuff. Anyone here who is thinking of the same?

In! I love building stuff! guitar related or not! hahaha

my advice bro, is to look into guides or DIY Books and Videos.

medyo maswerte ako kasi my late grandfather was quite the builder so yun yung bonding moments namin. building cabinets, pedal boards, spice racks and all hahaha

only thing, i wasn't well versed with powertools so guitarbuilding for me via an all hand method was almost impossible. I had a project SG before, mejo ang pangit ng output. most prob kasi nga I didn't have the proper tools to work with. hahahaha

on the other hand, sa non guitar stuff, i built bed frames and cabinets and shelves na. very very fulfilling pag successful and project mo. hahaha lalo na pag napintahan or navarnishan ng ayos, tapos nakadisplay na sa bahay. time and sweat well spent! :D
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

per I think cab and speaker encosures are a good start.

Had some rudimentary knowledge gained noong elementary. Iba naman eh gained from my uncles. My father is not the builder type. More of sales talk, politics and pick up lines ang natutunan ko sa kanya, he he he.

Anyway, I made some table tops dati. Nabasag kasi yung marble na nakapatong. Hindi ako makagawa ng circular so what I did was octagonal na curved naman ang edges, he he he. Copping saw galore! Nung pinanganak panganay namin ni misis, gagawa ako ng high chair, I even made a miniature and had some drawings. Hanggang ngayon, plano pa rin (12 na yung panganay at 2 na ang bunso, he he he).

Ang gusto kong ma-explore dati eh yung hindi gumagamit ng nails. Parang pegs and joints and holes and all that. Medyo mahirap nga lang. But if you are into precise na pagsusukat, maayos naman.

In, as Ralph says. Maraming available books and ebooks.

1. Start with a simple project, buy tools and master it.
2. Safety kit, gloves, goggles, etc.
3. A place to work with.

Keep it safe as always.

Bro Qroon, yung mga nail-less na construction, ganun yung mga antqiue pieces eh. gumagamit ng wooden dowels as alternative to pako. yung mga Tarugo kung tawagin. :)

IN ako dito. latest project ko is coffee table made of wood pallet. ansaya ng feeling pag natapos mo ang isang project.

anyone knows san nakakabili ng dowel? ang hirap mag tanong sa mga hardware, pag sinabi mo dowel, nakanganga lang ang tinatanong mo eh.
