Hello from Connecticut

Postby Steve Morley » Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:21 pm

I learned woodworking from my Dad, and just made "stuff" when I needed it until recently. Last fall, I bought a cheap Strat copy to practice my fret work on, and then ended up buying a nice, but blemished, body from AllParts when the bridge posts collapsed. Now I've been infected with guitar building, and just router planed some old chestnut for a Tele.

I've never worked on an acoustic instrument, but I'm curious about them, too.

My first work was on a mid-60's Gibson Melody Maker in the mid-70's, so I've been futzing around for a while.

Can anyone suggest a photo-sharing site? I've had problems with Imgur, and it seems that many posts on other forums that used Photobucket no longer can display the photos.

It's nice to be here.
