    Perhaps...but 'hers' would be the correct adjective! :)
    When I was a little girl, it bugged me if there were no stairs in dollhouses.

    I know the feeling! My dad built a dollhouse for my sister, and I shame to admit, that I bought one from the local market for my daugther.
    My dad passed away in 2000, he was a carpenter, and never saw those buildings (nor the guitars) I have made.

    I am retired and spend my time building accurate reproductions of Fender amps. I try to make the amp look and sound like the originals.

    You build fully grown human men? As well as rifles?

    Yes, and i'm afraid I've overbuilt that one a bit. Or so says that thing i step on that spits backs obviously-too-large numbers at me.

    I'm English too, but I can appreciate craftsmanship wherever it comes from :0)
    Nice work, Meteorman!

    Having few manual skills, I have to build virtually - this is a 3D rendering I 'built' for a warehouse safety company.
    Afterward I decided it was a bit boring, so I installed a turbine in the sub-floor...

    Beautiful work, Mike! I think I've mentioned this before, but I grew up shooting muzzle loaders in competition. I bought my first custom gun from a man in Rush Springs, OK named Carol Fincher. He built it specifically for me when I was 13. My family would go to rendezvous and camp in the lean-to, wear buckskins, etc. My dad got be friends with the guy who bought Mowry gunworks from Bill Mowry, and we traveled to a few events with him.

    Anyway, I got the chance to see loads of beautiful guns during that time, and yours look like they'd be right at home with the best of them.

    Building guitars for me is a great departure of my work of doing constantly something that does not actually exist, especially as we have lately delved from our long history of doing computer generated images and films even further to virtual and augmented reality. Hence our company name FAKE. http://www.fake.fi/work/
    Don't get me wrong. I love my job, but it's great to do something concrete you can hold in your hand once in a while... o_O

    Thanks Roger.
    I havent forgotten that you are on the design committee for a pending LongRifleCaster. In fact you are the entire committee, I believe. Elements include rust-blued steel hardware, maybe some poured pewter ornamentation, and form factors that portray smooth lines and slim figure. And what guitar wouldnt benefit from a patchbox? We're sure to create something that will get us shunned by the entire telecaster community. ....

    Is it small enough to to hang in the doll house? Seeing those little Barbies congregating in front of the bathroom mirror all night would give me the creeps!
