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'.
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.
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.
It's not completely far off from where I am going. On a side note, I hate that dudes videos. Too short and not enough detail. Sometimes music that I don't care to listen to then he stops and talks all the sudden so I can't leave it muted. Edit- Oh and I don't really have a miter saw. I do but it's small and stupid and nearly unusable!
