Needs one o' these, too:
Well.... That makes me sad.
But, if it's a good busy, well then I'm happy for ya.
Started working on "templates".
We forgive you Phil .................... Ran out of fingers?
Whoa, you're gonna mill yours out of aluminum?? AWESOME!
That's because I went to school before common core and calculators .
I agree. Very fitting.
I am partly ready . Still preparing the templates and tools .
If possible, I am looking more forward to this year than any other years I have been a part of
That would be awesome but alas we don't have the technology in this garage!
Big couple of weekends in the garage.
Finished the outside molds for a ca sized acoustic.
Half way through a dovetail jig for the neck joint.
Humidity seems under control. Dehumidifier is on standby.
Clamping cauls prepared.
Counting down the days now.
Now the easy part is done. ----> GSMBC
Let's help each other, more than we have in the past.
Let's keep the negative comments out of it.
Let's make this something, not just Glen would be proud of but something, we can all be proud of. This is the best way to truly honor what his presence here meant to us.
Excellent sentiment Chris!
Will be looking forward to spectating again this year.
Takes me 3 months to make a neck, so i will be more than happy to watch!
Speaking of making a neck, I'm planning a neck-through bass (my first neck build--yikes!).
So anyways, I was wondering if it's typically okay to start cutting the rough lumber to size, so that I can pretty much start gluing up the neck laminates as soon as the challenge begins. Likewise, could I plane the body boards to the proper thickness before the start date, or do we have to begin with totally rough lumber?
Hypothetically... If one were to do such things, one would be prudent to not mention it here... (nobody knows what size your lumber was when you purchased it!)
But we now know it's currently not the size it needs to be...
...and you all know the rules.
They should be accepting PM's for questions before to long.
I personally like the "challenge" of a start to finish build. YMMV
I just ordered a fret template, a couple of fingerboards, and my new rasps are set to arrive tomorrow. I have a couple of jigs to finish and templates to clean up. I better get to it.
I am not a moderator but I have participated in 5 out of 6 challenges.
In my opinion... no, don't start early. If you want to start before the challenge just open a build thread and build your guitar instead.
Make jigs, make plans, order parts and buy wood.
Once you start working the wood before the start date you have cheated.
What Mike said. It's not a race but it is a very intense and excellent experience. Have fun and honor TDPRI and Glen's memory by conducting yourself with integrity.
Okay, I was just asking, seeing as how some folks just order pre-sized fretboards and neck blanks and such. I wasn't asking if it was cool to cheat, I was asking if cutting to size was cheating. Now that I know, I will certainly wait. It would only save me about 30 minutes in the long run anyways. I'm just itching to make some sawdust, you all know how it is!
Very excited to see this start! It will be fun to watch!
