    • The Summer of My Discontent
      By Eric. · Posted
        Yes, thank you Mr. Obvious. I've been too busy this summer.  The few scraps of shop time I've had I've tried to spend building instead of upgrading the shop.  Catch-22...spend your time making the shop comfortable so you can work in it - but that would require about all the shop time you have so there's no point making it comfortable. I'm looking forward to fall.  Just sayin'.
    • The Summer of My Discontent

      I wish I had a basement shop, just because it'd be bigger than my garage. Eric, I thought you had an AC in your shop. I think your motivation should be to insulate, because heat sucks, so insulating fixes the problem of the sucking heat.

    • Acoustic Guitar from a 1960 Wurlitzer Piano
      By Madkrafter · Posted
      Hey Dave, Sorry, I didn't get a notice about your reply. I've been busy building a new photography website with Wordpress (totally new to me). Is it me or did things change around here? The format is different. Maybe I got carried away with my Wordpress tweaks and clicked something here??? Once the body is together, it's pretty stable as long as there are no large swings with humidity or temperature. I still have to do the binding around the guitar body and it does two things - protects the edges of the soft spruce top from bumps and dings, as well as sealing up the end grain. That said, it's been stable enough. I just met with a luthier friend and he said he has known guitar building projects to take years and all went well. The framed canvas is Provo Falls around Mirror Lake area.
