Pallet Wood Guitar – Making a Guitar with Tim Sway

October 18, 2019

Let’s go visit Tim Sway you can’t make a guitar out of trash what have I become hey guys, thanks for watching this build, I’m
not gonna try to play this guitar because you’re listening to Tim Sway play it
right now and that’s the only reason why I’d totally play this guitar otherwise cuz
I totally can you know obviously why would I build a guitar anyway this
is a collaboration project that I did together with my friend(?) Tim Sway go
check them out if you haven’t yet he’s on YouTube and all that other stuff
he does a lot of reclaimed projects and a few reclaimed guitars here and there but
let’s talk about everybody’s favorite subject
and that’s hearing protection obviously ISOtunes making hearing protection
sexy since 2000-something so you’ve likely noticed me wearing
these headphones in my shop I literally wear them every second that I’m in here
they are bluetooth hearing protection headphones so they connect to my phone
to play podcasts and music and stuff while I’m in the shop and they protect
my ears at the same time this actually makes me want to wear my hearing
protection which is a pretty special thing honestly and I want you guys to do
the same so does ISOtunes so that’s why they do me a coupon code to pass along to
all of you good for $10 off any pair of headphones I’ll
include that link down below so you just click through to the website now they
have a handful of different style variations available ISOtunes Pro are
my favorite in Jackman orange of course they have a couple different color
variations and different styles like the ISOtunes xtra that fit around your
neck and a couple of wired versions if you’re not into the whole Bluetooth
things so check that link down below to check out all the details on the
different variations and see which one fits you the best
oh and one last thing I want to mention is Makers Central I will be there that’s
in Birmingham in the UK that’s happening the second week of May I’m actually
doing a panel with Bob form I like to make stuff and Jesse the samurai
carpenter and come and see and find out together with me what we’re gonna be
talking about that’s all I’ve got for you this time come back again next time
for the next inevitable pallet lamination and I’ll see you then

    Awesome as always… question… when you laminate, do you thin the glue or is it the roller ( ordering one either way) that allows the glue to flow like that. I laminated a workbench and the glue was not easily spread. I used a silicone brush.
