Stuw"s Catz parlor build

19 Dec 2014

Posted by stuw in Open Build Talk

Have a few things to finish first, but looking forward to building a parlor with this Catz spruce I just got from Mario. When it first arrived it was still in the "fuzz" stage and I had no idea what I"m looking at till it's been sanded.

 

What I found after sanding was a beautiful top, great tap tone, and a whole lot of medulary rays. I'm going to have to find a special back and side set to go with this.

 

My camera is not the best...or I'm a lousy photographer... or a combination of both but here are a few pics of the top.

More to come as I gear up for this project.

 

Thanks

Stu

Violins and a surprise.

19 Dec 2014

Posted by JasonMoe in Official Moonlight Guitars

So a couple weeks ago I was snooping around in an antique shop looking for whatever, and I came across a rough violin body, and a decent restorable violin in a case with bow. The last few years I have been tossing around the idea of building a violin. So I bought them. I can use them for reference. They were reasonable, both for around 40 bucks. The one in the case is a Jackson Guldan. The body is a Boehemian Gypsy Saxon or something. The Jackson is complete and just needs a few things. But the Boehemian one is really just for ideas and it just reeks of history. Now for the surprise. Today in the mail I receive a hand made violin plane from Padma. I am totally filled with joy and are so gracious for such a fine gift. Padmas builds have always been in inspiration and his personality is one of a kind. Thank you so much. My violin future just might get started after all.

The annual Christmas tree train thread

19 Dec 2014

Posted by Nelson Guitars in Official Greg Nelson Guitars

IMHO it ain't Christmas without a train under the tree.  We had an HO setup on a piece of plywood for the whole time the kids were growing up. Set up takes no time and I soldered the tracks so we didn't have dead spots.  When the kids left and the tree got smaller I bought a little N gauge that was more appropriately sized. This year however I went double decker!

If you have a train under the tree please post a pic. If not, why not!
