Neck Workstation
Join me as I build a neck rest for restringing and repairing guitars. I call it a "Neck Workstation" because it organizes all the tools I typically use when I am working on the headstock end of a guitar. I used African Mahogany and Curly Maple for the body of the neck rest and I used Butcher Block oil/wax for the finish.

CNC Hold Down Clamps
I had a little scrap wood lying around and decided it was time to upgrade my clamping situation so I can actually use the t-slots on my CNC table.

Welding Table & Downdraft Bench - Garage Makeover - Part 4
This is the last of the benchwork in my garage renovation. I incorporated a welding area, an assembly area and a router station that has a downdraft sanding area into the design. I used white melamine and 10 ga steel for the bench top surfaces. The frame is made with 1-1/2" square tube edges and 3/4" square tube runners.

V-Carve Inlays - Detailed How To
Let's get up close and personal with inlay settings in V-Carve. Its an easy process if you know what all the settings control. My personal notes are below: Tools (affiliate links to amazon) 60 DEGREE V-BIT - http://amzn.to/2vkOZ3k 1/4" SPIRAL COMPRESSION BIT - http://amzn.to/2funEq1 1/8" SPIRAL DOWNCUT BIT - http://amzn.to/2vGwBmf 3/4" RESAW BLADE FOR BANDSAW - http://amzn.to/2fudJRh For the Inlay (Plug)... 1. Mirror the vectors in your graphic so you have a mirror image. Set your "Start Depth" to .1. This ensures you have .1" of material that sits down into the pocket. 2. Set the "Flat Depth" to .1". The .1" here adds to the .1" of start depth, so the emboss will be .2" deep. Since .1" will go INTO the pocket. This will leave a .1" gap between the pieces for the band saw to pass through after the glue up. On the CNC router... Carve the inlay (plug) normally starting with the V-bit (60 degree preferably) Pocket... 1. The v-carve is business as usual except, set the flat depth to .2 inches and use an 1/8 end mill for the flats. (this makes sure the v-bit only goes .2" into the work as that is the maximum cutting height for a 60 degree, 1/4" bit. On the CNC router... Zero the machine at the Origin. If you want some sanding allowance, Add .01" to the Z height. (This will cheat the pocket to be .21" deep. This will allow the inlay to go in slightly deeper so you'll have .01" to be able to sand the surface to the right depth for the graphic's detail.)
