Ahh . . . yes, the gentle kiss of charred leaves on the palette.. .
Hey Ron, I would head down in the AM, but I'm afraid there won't be any left.
Ron - having a glass of highland park 15 and a montecristo #2 (the real one) in your honor. Somehow i convinced my wife that we should complete the cigar lounge before we redid the 60 year old kitchen. (Must be the first year of marriage - i guess ill take it while i can get it) I am sitting here with my dog at my feet sipping scotch listening to monk hoping you too are enjoying your evening.
Obviously the templates were a favor to the community more than a profit center for you. Cheers on keeping it up so long!
Revv23 you're killing me. Nothing better than great scotch and a equally great stogie. Life is good.
We've never met but I knew I liked you for some reason.
As soon as I read your mention of light notes of creosote a few pages back, I knew we were talking about the same distillery. Outstanding! I like everything I see in that photo
I have a question... and it has nothing to do with whiskey or single malts or scotch...
Now, if Mr. Kirn no longer wants to sell the templates... How about Open sourcing the drawings?
I never worked rom Drawings.. I made original masters directly from the original body with a pattern tracing bit.... I used the master I made to make working templates, and the templates y'all got from them....
here I am dong a '63 (if I recall) Jazzmaster, '55 P-Bass, and a '62 Strat...
This was all about 2008.. 'cause that's when Me 'n Reggie Young was hangin' at the '08 NAMM... cool guy . . and he can pick too... the pix was in the middle of the template shots....
Blimey, you look just like I always imagined... minus a goatie..!
Piece of cake... All I need now are '63 Jazzmaster, '55 P-Bass, and a '62 Strat.
Oh, wait a minute... This may be a little more involved than I thought
Isn't the Tdowns drawing adequate? At least for a Tele?
Got a question for the Scotch cork sniffers, some of whom may be Scottish. Having done some brewing and distillation of my own (a half-decent brandy, if I do say so myself). OK, some of these guys were poor, or had no forest or gas jet nearby for fuel to heat their stills, so burning peat was the way to heat the pot. But how does the peat flavor get into the booze? The still needs to be tight, so vaporized alcohol can't escape until it condenses,so it's not by natural diffusion or anything like that. Do they exposed the condensed booze to peat smoke, or dump a couple shovels full of peat into the mash, or what?
And, what's up with white tequilas?
The barley is dried over a peat fire. You get the smokiness from that.
Agree w RK on the Dalmore, an agreeable sip that mere mortals can afford and wont cross your eyes.
I've been waiting for someone to use Scotch and router in the same sentence, but THANKFULLY no one has.... that would end badly.
once, while using my router with an older bit.. the power cord got caught, stalling the thing in mid cut...... the momentary "freeze" caused the dull bit to burn the wood... the room immediately filled with the faint, yet sweet smoky aroma ... being late in the day, the sun slipping behind clouds at the horizon, the amber shades of light peaking between, as the sunset bid adieu for, yet another day... that color, and the faint aroma ...I could only think of the cache' of Islay scotches waiting for my consideration.... and an Opus X patiently awaiting the flame for the Vintage Dunhill Flip ....
ask and ye shall be served...
and i am you, and what i see is me.
It is, of course.
Now ask me when I ever built a Tele with a template
Well.... that was a long sentence... and I admit I had to Google the Dunhill Flip... but it sounds like that day ended well for you Ron... after you sanded out that burned spot.....
Very poetic Ron. I shall inform Mr. Trump of your poetic proficiency and to keep you in mind for the next "Poet Laureate" USA.
