  1. attached a piece of wood across the front- again with pocket holes/screws: i didnt take a pic from the back- but the tops of the sides are attached to the back with a single 2 1/2" screw and glue-I drilled thru the back -and somehow managed to keep it all straight and not blow out the dowel with the screw. so from here I primed/painted the unfinished portions of the legs from the crib- I stained some boards for the seat (minwax provincial I think is the color-its actually darker than what this pic shows)- I added some felt underneath the legs/feet- and I didnt want any puncture marks in the seat slats- so instead of nailing them- they are only glued in place. This bench aint for a sitting, its fer a lookin only. ( and I removed the drop cloth for this pic in case any of you might be a worried I glued this over my exposed hardwoods) . and the finished bench with what looks to be winter themed "stuff" that the wifey has adorned it with. The stuff gets changed out every few months. I think the whole exercise was nothing more than a culvert operation the wifey pulled to be able to go buy more shite I mean "stuff". Whatever- she lets me be me- so- she can buy all the shite, i mean stuff she wants. guess she saved me a couple hundred as that is what these go for at junk scrap flea market shit i mean stuff sales. plus we had this empty space in the hall way that needed something- and what better than to put more shite, I mean stuff in the house.
  2. i used dowels and glue to attached these to the back frame- and onto the sides- whipped out the ol kreg mini jig thingy and made me some pocket holes attached the sides to the back part via said pocket holes and screws:
  3. I cant remember when I built this- a year or more ago I guess. Jenny Lind beds were everywhere in the whatever- late 50s/early 60s I guess. We had my wifes old one from when she was a kid up in our attic with a bunch of other crap we have been hanging onto for years. My wife showed me a pic of a bench made from one on instagram/pintrest and asked if I could build it. Of course my love/master/captain, of course. we start with the bed- I used spray paint & primer to both seal and fill in some of the wood. i forgot to remove the odd wooden oblong wheeled feet- so off they came i need to cut one of the ends of the bed in half to make the side rails- so- the dowel in the middle had to go so after fiddling around thinking about it- I realize that the height isnt right for this- and I need to jack it up a bit. So- hmm- lets look around previously mentioned crap loaded attic, and low and behold- a baby crib from 1960 something that absolutely is not in modern day safety code- not sure what we were thinking about saving it but- feeder stock it is
  4. i have always known that as the Godfather bass- and actually a few moments of some of my favorite music ever were made on that bass. I think the short scale gives is a bit of a better sound over "mission control" which is what I have been given to know as the name of the bass I referenced above. I have an email discussion somewhere in the cobwebs of my email with Rick Turner regarding these basses. Specifically I asked about the type of wood lamination on mission control and scale. The Guild is a shorter scale than mission control. i think it gives it "that sound" which I love so much. The sg bass he played prior (also short scale) at some point was fitted with filters on it as well- and I love that tone he gets from it.
  5. starting at 3:16-this alembic bass did it for me. i have (unlike most bass players I know) been hooked on filter based electronics ever since I first heard/saw this. that and the fact that 13 yr old me read that van halen built his own ax- i was in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQvGSzi9bi0
  6. Wes- is that the house remodel going on under yer footies there? was wondering how that was coming along- you hadnt posted in a while on that. all this talk about commune had me thinking you were bailing on it.
  7. looking good man- I have been lurking around and not commenting much- meant to say this the other day- and a belated bonus points on the beer cap. very cool.
