Re: Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas one and all.

Martin, you and Jeremy have kept the lights on and this place open. That's more that anyone could ask. I know I'm grateful. And I'm also looking forward to seeing your new shop and builds. Fun times ahead.

Re: The News Tonight

New Mexico was in dealing with a drought the entire time I lived there during college. The standing timber in the forest I worked on was dryer than the lumber at the building supply stores. We had a few forest fires while I was there that were scary, but they were nothing like what you guys are deal...

Re: The News Tonight

Gawd that's right, your summer has just begun. If I could send the atmospheric river we had the past few day down your way I would. We were supposed to get ~7" of rain in 72 hrs. I think we ended up with about 4" in 48 hrs. No rain today.
Mark, Bruce glad to hear you are okay.

Martin, what a relief to hear you two are okay. My heart sank when I read about Adelaide Hills. The news clips, videos and photos are just heartbreaking.
You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

All but one of the purchases came from China, but the shipping time wasn't bad. They got it in the mail quickly, it was US Customs took the bulk...

Re: A new book on building ukuleles

Graham, what are the chances of getting a signed copy? I totally understand if you would rather not. The wife worked at a book shop for years, and I know what an author goes through when signing stock.

Re: Hollowbody electric

Rod, that is just lush. One of the things I plan on doing as soon as we win the lottery is to commission a guitar. Though having me play it is probably an insult to your guitar, but there you go, I want one anyway. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Re: StewMax Membership and Free Shipping

I joined about two months ago. It's paid for itself twice over in free shipping and the discounted books and media. The free shipping is slow for me as well. It takes it at least a week to go from Ohio to PNW. But the discounted price for two day shipping is more than reasonable. It's what I would h...

From the looks of things, the templates were a good call. The neck is very clean, looks smooth and silky.

Hello Dave, welcome to the forum. Looks like you are off to a fantastic start. The neck looks like you've been carving them for years. I'm sure it will be a stunner when its done.

Hi Rod, this one is coming along nicely. Its looking clean and sharp. Its going to be a beauty when it's done. I really like your wood choices. I have to say you guys are spoiled for beautiful native woods. Our most figured native woods are walnut and cherry, after that it gets pretty plain. Not tha...

Re: Tele Thinline Build

Things like this can be so frustrating. I'm glad you aren't letting it stop you.

In the picture you captioned "Started routing the body on the router table. First side went ok." Was that done with one pass or was that multiple passes?

Thanks for the photo Andy. Your neck looks perfect, as smooth as a baby's bum. I can see what you mean about using the light to help you work. I am planning on using poplar for my first run at doing the neck. The pine I can get up here isn't worth using. I'm making the neck because my son asked me t...
