Recycling…

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

In an effort to use up some of the steadily expanding pile of guitar off cuts, I started a new project - a cigar box mandolin. I’ll be keeping a little diary of this build, so check back if you’re remotely interested. I don’t guarantee I’ll make a silk purse from a sow’s ear, but I aim for a pair of itchy cotton briefs at the very least…

Also, updates to the bolt on neck page: finishing and buffing.

New guitar stuff…

I’ve updated the Les Paul diary, which now includes spraying the sunburst and attaching the fretboard. Next up: Carving the back of the neck and finishing the colour coats. I’ve also updated the bolt on neck page to show the installed trussrod cover and shaped heel.

Also of note: My parents are back from a month of travelling around Australia. Cue many pictures of spectacular scenery, Koalas & Roos, and the arrival of a lifetime supply of stubbie holders…
