Are you done yet?
Lol. I have a busy weekend playing for the next 3 days in Lake Tahoe, it'll be the first time I've played a guitar in 4 months, still recovering from carpal tunnel surgery. I'm going to go insane not being able to make progress until middle of next week. And the last of the parts for Barncaster's Harmony showed up today so I should probably do that first . With all the new techniques and ideas you gave me I just want to get working on this.
Hope your hand heals up, I'm a screenprinter and live in mortal fear of CTS!
Back when I had those louvers punched I had a steel one made up too (set up fee was already paid). Today I trimmed it down and it's going to become the back/cavity cover on this solid body.
Hoping you avoid the CTS. I had both hands done. I'm 5 weeks out on the right hand and 3 weeks out on the left. 20+ years of playing caught up with me. I quit playing in February while I waited to get through the medical system and get fixed. I was really struggling to play, hands would go numb two songs into a set and then it was just hang on for the ride after that. I was really struggling to sleep as well, hands would go numb and I'd be up every 10 minutes, it was awful. Fortunately the surgery is really easy.
If you had told me this morning that I would be making guitar kerfing today I would have said your high. But look...
I couldn't use my kerfing jig with the aluminum strip unfortunately. It would have turned out better but this isn't bad.
This is actually the hard part, getting the inside nubs shaved down to bend the radius I need.
Not done yet but it's a good start.
It's a giant louvered guitar pick, how cool is that. Looks great.
A good practical solution Mike but not for someone with carpal tunnel in both wrists.
That's a great tool but I don't have any cool gloves like that . Kidding, that is awesome and produces a great result. I'll get one of those for my second one of these builds with thinner material. I like that thanks.
My kids all have good wrists
Child labor! I forgot about that.
This is amazing! I can’t wait to see how it turns out
Man oh man, I wish I had even half of this skill set! How many hrs do you think you'll have in this?
When you're done, you should make a matching uke! That'd be too cool!
This is an awesome, ambitious project, James. I'm totally in for the ride!
Great build. I'm watching in amazement!!
I think I'm going to tack the top to the sides with TIG welder and probably same for the new soundwell. Hopefully get that all done this weekend.
I forgot to take pics of the new soundwell but you can see it in the background of this pic
Dang, this is awesome to watch. Thanks for taking the timeout to take and post pics.
