This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

Well done sir!

Still in the design stage, my first solid body. Iroko, for the mojo, and some mysterious hardwood I found somewhere. Not sure what form it will take, just that I might use that Gitty hardtail I have had in my  parts bin for quite awhile. OR  make a mahogany bridge? I'll put "Big Bertha" my biggest scatterwound to date in it. Other than that, dunno if it'll be a chugger or a three-string fretless, slide-only. Face of the board is rough and I have pretty much given up on flattening it out with the tools I have.... ! But it's pretty!

 Lots of new challenges. Goody!

That has instant potential. I think it will make a great git!

that git has a lot of potential. Great looking pickup too.

Thank you two! Still trying to come up with a final shape. I play mostly sitting down and I am hoping I can build it to fit comfortably in my lap. 

If you have any scrap wood pieces left over, you can add a piece to the bottom edge with a curve in it.

I like it too.

I like that! A man’s guitar for sure!

I completed a tenor CBU based on a large AVO cigar box (I just uploaded images to my album). I also have 3 other ukes and a small acoustic guitar currently in the works. I just ordered Bill Jehle's latest book on the Kamaka CBU. I'm sure that will lead to another project.

Projects have a way of backing up and being forgotten. I really need to finish about 10 projects at this time, but it still has to wait for the new shop.
