    Jack, just an assumption on my part??

    WOODn't the grain running perpendicular to the strings/bridge/nut have a propensity to abate vibrations from the bridge. Just what I think I know about wood pretty much makes me ask, and why I WOOD never do that when laying out a git. Being an expert and all now that I have made a dozen or so. ;)

    AH, i see what i was doing wrong, i was using the adress bar & copying it into the thing. thanks.

    the butt joint is not very visible at all, most of those pictures are just of when it wasn't glued up. except for the rough cut its at now.
    i probably will paint it.

    thanks for all the compliments, its been fun so far. i just finshed up making a rocking horse for my niece, so this is still on hold.

    Welcome, jds009! Great project you've got going there. I'm very impressed at what you're doing at 16 years of age........or any age for that matter. Keep up the good work and post it here!

    Nice work so far. Is this for a material processing class? Most tech classes around here have done away with a woodshop-like class.
