    Just scrolled through this thread for the first time in 6 or 7 months. Gee, Photobucket sure put the screws to a lot of us, didn't they?? The first 25 pages are pretty much useless.

    Nothing new to report... just venting about PB...

    :mad:

    That's an understatement. Wiped me off hundreds of posts/threads across several forums, many years of information gone.. I'm SO GLAD I've been paying them for years.

    I've looked at a lot of my threads on this and other forums and 75% or more of my photos are gone. Everything prior to the last update on the TDPRI forum software is gone. Since then I have been loading photos directly to the forum instead of using a photo hosting site.

    Along those lines, hat's off to the technical folks who added the direct upload feature to the forum interface. But what are the limits on that? I have noticed that when making posts that are pic-heavy, it tends to max out the upload per post at about five pics. Is it a file size limit, and if so what is it? And just per post?

    And as we use this option more and more exclusively now, is there any danger of us maxing out the capacity on our threads or the forum. I know these are Neanderthal-level questions but I am not a techie WRT computer or internet issues.

    Regards,

    I've been on hiatus from guitar building for a couple years. In the meantime I've taken on a couple furniture projects. I'm just about done this credenza. Once I get it out of the shop I gotta clean the place up thoroughly and then get started on another guitar or two.

    I have a rosewood back and side set that I was going to use for an acoustic some day, but after a couple attempts at acoustics I've decided they aren't really my thing right now. Anyway this set has started to crack so I've decided to use it for a cap on an electric body. It has a nice strip of sapwood running up the middle and will look great. I will have enough left to do a matching headplate. I just haven't decided what looks better... having the sapwood run along the edge of a 6 in Line headstock or through the middle of a 3x3 headstock...

    The 6-inline looks great, I'd love to see that on a guitar!

    Is the credenza made from white oak? It looks great.

    It's red oak with a white pickling stain. this picture was taken after the first light coat. i think i put 3 or 4 coats on it.

    EDIT - actually, no that pic was taken before any stain was applied. it IS red oak though...
