cutting the heel

So here I am cutting the heel with a small knife. Its a very sharp small Frost knife which I use all the ways I am
not supposed to do. Cutting against myself and holding the blade with my fingers. But fortunately, I never cut myself when working. I cut myself in the kitchen, in the garden and so on. And I also put my thumbs into dor openings and slam the door. Just look at my left hand thumb :-(

2 pictures from the workshop

So here you have 2 views from the workshop. They ar right from when I started building again a few weeks ago so everything is nice and clean. Its a a small workshop, only some 11m2. But thats enough for an assembly room and its easy to keep it climate controlled, with central heating, humidifyer and a dehumidifyer.
I have another workshop room with machines and which can also be used for general DIY and woodbutchering. :)

I'm preparing wood for 2 guitars which will be assembled seperately and finished together.
The first one is a classical guitar with Indian rosewood and spruce soundoard and the second will be a flamenca blanca with cypres back and sides and a spruce soundboard.

Small signs of life

Hi all, I´m building. Very slow and small output is my way these days.
I have also revised my website and changed adress, telephone number and prices.

#131 finished

So here you have #131. A hibrid that I actually would prefer to call a Flamenca Negra de Concierto.
It is clearly more flamenco than classical, but compared with my purebred flamenco guitars it has a little bit more sustain and harmonics in the trebles. A very powerfull and strong sounding guitar. I hope the owner will make a video soon.
