Strings in Motion

Ever wondered what the strings were doing when they were plucked?

Re: Heads Up

Re: Heads Up

It's official. I got the new position. I'm not one for gifs or what not, so just image Snoopy doing his happy dance on an endless loop and that's about how I feel right now. Richard, I see your clutter and raise you total disaster. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab358/Aoibeann/IMGP0002_zpsp5ygt1...

Re: Heads Up

Thanks Nick. It's good to be getting back into things. Life have been far too stressful and harsh. The new job is a good step in the right direction.

Re: Heads Up

Good morning Allen. I missed you guys as well, but I didn't want to subject you all to my very cranky attitude.

The job is much closer. It is south of Seattle, so I'll be avoiding all of that traffic.

Re: Heads Up

Thanks guys. Martin, I've been either working, commuting or sleeping. It's been a very dull decade. I would have been more than happy with the stern talking to, that would have meant that I got to meet some of you in person. The first order of business is to clean out the shop.

Heads Up

Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. It has taken nine years, but if all goes right next week, and it should, the hard part is over, I'll interview with the section supervisor and the department head as a formality. They technically bless my hiring so it is an important formality. And once March...

He made is own version of a Jointmaker Pro. Why? Because he could. That and shipping was a bear to his hill...

Re: Washington Landslide

Thank you Craig for thinking about me. The slide happened in the county I work for, but no where near where we live or my brother and his family live. As of yet, no one I know was directly involved in the slide. For that I am truly grateful, but my heart goes out to those that were and those that ar...

Re: Go bar setup

I have to agree with Jim, you might need another layer up top. The only possible issue I see with the rods might be the tips. If they have silicone in them, it might contaminate the wood. You can do a test on a piece of wood by leaving it clamped up over night and then putting a finish on. If you ge...

Re: Work Bench

I'm seriously contemplating this one. http://www.shopnotes.com/plans/small-workbench/ I think it's large enough for guitar bodies. But its not so massive that it takes up all the floor space and I lose things on it. It'll have enough weight to stay put while I plane. I like the integrated vises and ...

Thanks Clancy. Had a great time. We went down to the beach in Oregon for the weekend. It was great to get away from everything. My laptop died the day before we left, so I now have a new one. Happy birthday to me. I love it. It has a back lit keyboard and great graphics. But let me just say, I hate ...

Re: Soundboard too thin?

Col, I understand you not being comfortable with the top and wanting to go with something you trust Just don't toss the top. There's nothing really wrong with it. And who knows what you'll want to do in a few months. You might decide to make another guitar, maybe a smaller bodied guitar. Maybe an OO.
