Hand Job for a Little Head

I know I am not going to get a centerfold spread in Woodworking Magazine, but I am proud of this little head cab I made for a Richter Blackface Champ I just picked up and wanted to share.

I used to work in a shop where I had access to every woodworking tool imaginable. Now that I am a stay at home dad, I have limited tools and time to do anything. I made this all with hand tools I have in the house, which was a little bit of a challenge without resources I am used to having.

Plus, I just wanted to use that post title. What did you think I was talking about anyway? :rolleyes:

Easily the best hand job for a little head ever. I'd pay tons of money for that, heck, I'd give you my big head for your little head.

For a second I thought you were going to finish that sentence with handjob :)


The amp looks good, supergenius365!

How'd you join the corners? Are there biscuts in there or do you have a blind joint of somesort?

The grill pattern looks like the metallic grill cover for the heaters in my parents house when I was a kid. I used to sit on those heaters in the frigid winter at 6:30AM, wait for the sound of the bus at the top of the hill and sprint across the back yard, hurdle two fences to barely make it to the stop.. I liked my morning heat man...



I see it now: you screwed the corners and covered them with rounded hole plugs on the top...

I just used glue on a butt joint. I used that heavy duty Elmer's glue, kind of like Gorilla Glue. I only ended up using screws and putting plugs over them when I had to drill for the middle support bar. I didn't have a clamp large enough to hold it together. I decided later to screw the corners together as well really just for appearance. I really didn't need to with that glue.

As for the look, I was going for a tribute to my old house that got torn down. It was 100+ years old with pine wood everywhere. The black grill looked like the heat vent grills from the old house as well. Damn I miss that house. This is my little tribute to it.

I saw where this thread was headed (not in the gutter hee hee) but still absolutely excellent work on that head and also the best thread title thus far for 2008!!
