Finished Pictures of #10

November update!

I hope I don’t go to just posting monthly updates, that makes for a really boring blog.

I’ve basically just been spraying finish on #10 and watching it dry. I’m doing things here and there, but nothing worth taking a picture of and posting about. Here is a photo update. The guitar is strung up and sounds really nice. I have a few odds and ends to finish up first, but it’s basically done!


I’ve been working pretty regularly on guitars, apparently I am not taking enough pictures though.

Here is a photo dump of last month’s work.


Moving along now! I’ve made some great progress on #10, it’s going a lot quicker than I had even hoped.
I should have all the wood I need for #9 now, so I’m going to start cranking on that one. I need to send the finished design ideas to the customer first and I can get rolling.


Holy Crap, it’s September!

Here is a smattering of pics from the last few weeks.


Weekend update

I didn’t get quite as much done as I wanted, but I got close. I wanted to get the box completely closed up, I almost made it!

Pre-weekend update!

Hello friends! Here is a quick photo dump of the few things I got done this week. Basically just a lot of gluing!

Mo’ Updates

Here are some pictures from the weekend. Basically, I carved the soundboard braces, bent the sides, and started making the heal and tail blocks. I also got my side bending jig in working order, I had to finagle a lot of things, but it worked pretty well.



More work is done on #10. I was able to get into the garage for a fair amount of time last night and I got lots done!

What I did:

-Few more braces glued to soundboard
-Sides thicknessed
-Neck blank laminated
-chose different fretboard and bridge blank
-signed inside of soundboard


Lots of work done on #10, given the limited about of time I did it in. I got the rosette done and I started bracing the top.
