    Dogs are really good at the Jedi Mind Trick, especially when food is involved.

    Well, there is the 3 second rule. 'Course, most dogs I know are faster than that.

    Ha! So true. Unfortunately, my son is a dropper but my dog is a picky eater..... I might need to borrow Butters for awhile. No breed cleans a kitchen floor like a Lab.

    Butters eats anything eatable or not. She ate half a coke can and somehow survived, shredded the can to pieces and ate it. She tore the door off the access to the crawl space under the house and pulled all the HVAC ducts apart. Dog is ridiculous.

    Try feeding the dog before it is too late?

    Or she's trying to pass a shredded coke can... actually I think both might be correct.

    I guess she's figured out that when she's got to wear a sign and have her picture made, she did something wrong. No, wait, I forgot, she's a lab. :p. When you want smarts in a dog, get a German Shepherd. When you want sweet and loveable, but sometimes a wee bit dense, lab.

    Labs are the goofiest dogs ever and that's why they are my favorite. But I do like German Shepherds too. They can get pretty goofy as well.

    I often hear the expression "plays like butter" from guitar vendors; how well does Butter play guitar??

    Had a Doberman once. Scary smart. Here's my acoustic adventure with Rommel some 20 years ago.

    No, Rob, didn't you see that Dobies are smart? He was the band's manager,* booking agent, and head of security. In this photo you can see that he's tuning up RO's guitar with his acute canine hearing.

    *He proved to ba an excellent manager, once the little misunderstanding about accepting Alpo was ironed out.

    An excellent manager yes, but the band got tired of working for cats & tennis balls.

    I guess its time for an update.

    I got a little distracted by other things. I was watching Paul Sellers videos and decided I needed a hand plane. A little eBayin’ later and I have 7. And a couple router planes. None of them are less than 60 years old.

    Then, my sis-in-law wanted a Bonsai tree for her birthday. Well, I couldn’t just go out & buy one without knowing what I was doing. A little research and she got a nice little Juniper & some tools. I got some tools and started digging up every old hedge in the neighborhood. Don’t tell my neighbors.

    I should do a Bonsai thread. I’d only have to post every year or so.

    But, as I recall, there once was a classical guitar undergoing surgery in my shop. I wonder how that’s going. I had to go back a few pages to see where we left off.

    Well that was 20 or 30 minutes I’ll never get back. Seems like the last thing I did was glue on the back.

    Since then I cut the binding channel, cleaned it up and glued in the binding.

    [​IMG]

    I had to miter & fit the ends of the binding as I went.

    [​IMG]

    Then I scraped the finish off the sides as I was leveling the binding.

    [​IMG]

    It looks like the sides & back are the same wood in that picture, but that’s just a trick of the light. If you go back a couple pics, you can see the color difference between them.

    I ended up removing all the old finish from the guitar. Here they are all cleaned up & ready for the first coats of shellac. I took the mandolin apart & sanded it as well. Thought I’d finish them both at the same time

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That last pic shows the different woods in the classical back & sides. I think whoever built this originally had stain in the finish to make them look the same. I’m not going to do that. Just the little tint from the shellac and clear lacquer.

    At least that’s the plan right now. Tune in in a couple months and maybe we’ll see how that went.

    Ah...it goes that way. Then there's flattening the soles and general cleanup and sharpening. :)
