    James Garner R.I.P.

    Spent many hours as a kid watching Rockford, have season 2 sitting on my coffee table. Watching an episode this week I remember thinking to myself that he wont be around much longer. RIP and thanks for keeping me out of trouble.

    Job interviews

    The interviews I hate the most are the behavioural interviews. You can have all the skills needed but screw up that part of it and your done. Some of the questions are just idiotic and have nothing to do with the job. " So your home alone, you just took a dump and you find out your out of toilet...

    Do I have to use vinyl sealer under lacquer? What does it do?

    You don't need it. It's actually made for use in areas of high humidity such as kitchen cabinets. A thinned mix of lacquer will seal it just fine and if your doing a natural finish you wont lose any clarity like you do with a sanding sealer.

    Yeah we went all through the warehouse, they just had more of the firewood quality stuff. It was all cracked and really not good for much else. Tried to get some mahogany for a LP build while I was there but thy didn't have anything wide enough.

    Offset Hybrids

    That figures, I went there last year while on vacation. Called them up and they said we have pallets of flame maple on sale for $6 a foot. So I drove 2 hours out of my way via 101 to get there and the stuff they had was basically firewood. Nothing even close to the stuff you got. Bad timing I...

    Realistic maple fretboard wear VS. Unicorns

    Here's one I just did but I just stained the bare wood before I finished it. I didn't sand thru the finish at all. I copied a real '54 but tried to keep it subtle.

    If I ever win the lottery....

    Why almost? Even just $5 would help. I donated yesterday and today I made close to $300 in side jobs that came out of the blue. Maybe there is such a thing as karma I don't know but it feels good to help those that cant help themselves.
