An "old" photo

This photo is some weeks old. I had forgot that I had taken it. The building of the 3 guitars is in a completely different moment. I have assembled the body and the neck, waiting for a new router bit to arrive, so that I can fit the bindings. Meanwhile, I´m making the bridges.
Now that I´ve found the charger for the batteries, hopefully I will update the blog more often.
On the photo you can see the 3 soundboards for guitars 119 - 121. 2 x 2A a 1 x 1A

Back and working

Ok, I´ve been back for a month now and I´ve been working the last 2 weeks. In the start it was simply to hot.
So here you have the first shot of guitars nubers 119, 120 and 121. 2 x 2A blancas and a 1A blanca. They should be finished and ready for sale some day in November.

guitar wood preparation.

While I varnished the violin, I prepared some wood for the guitars that I will build after summer.
This means that when starting up again, its the more delicate work in a clean workshop. My next batch of guitars will be 2 x 2A blancas and 1x 1A blanca
This is my last post in a while. I will go away for summer and will back in end August.
Enjoy life.

violin varnished

Here´s the violin #4  varnished.
I have used some oldfashion "grain popper" on the maple before varnishing and the result is amazing. The figuring is a lot deeper and 3 dimensional.
A tad of very fine steel wool covered in vinegar. Cover the container/glass/whatever and let stay for around 30 hours. It stinks badly!!
Take out the steel wool and dillute with destilled water 1 to 8 water. And apply with a brush.

Violin in white


So here you have violin/fiddle #4 with strings on and ready to be varnished. The tone is big and with a lot of volume. I hope the varnish wont ruin that. Again, the picture is with indirect light only, so the the shape of the instrument can be seen jus a little bit.
