    Howdy folks,

    Haven't stopped by in awhile, so I thought I'd check in.

    A lot has happened since the last time we spoke.

    I earned my doctorate, moved to Maine, got married, started a new professor job, and bought a farm. I finally dusted off my guitar building tools to make a charity guitar for the National Association of County Agricultural Agents. I figured y'all might like to follow along too.

    Welcome back! I was wondering where you ended up. Your previous builds have been helpful when I was starting out.

    Welcome back.

    When I started in this hobby, I learned quite a bit from your builds.

    Welcome back! I'm glad to read you bought a farm instead of bought the farm. What a difference an article makes.

    How's Maine? I've stopped in at Bangor a couple of times and I have friends from there. I hear it's very rural with no real industry to speak of. Very agrarian, an old money, retirement place. Sounds amazing.

    Welcome back.
    I hope to watch more about this build. A little curious why you are not using the wood stove? I hate seeing people cold.
