My Little Me

She is now 19, graduated from high school with honors. Attends the local ATC perusing a cosmetology certification and later into theatrical arts.  Has earned several scholarships to pay for her schooling.

Learned to play the Cello at 13, that's when I went out and spent a small fortune on a full size Cello for her to grow into and perfect. She had the best professor as an instructor who pushed her to find her natural element with the Cello. A prodigy  in the strings. Cello, Violin,…

Too many projects

First Build, up-right tub bass for the girl

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 2:15pm 3 Comments

My 12 year old daughter brought home an assignment this past friday, seems they are being tasked to build home made musical instruments. And her choice was an up-right tub bass of all things. So, to break in our newly acquired, used shop equipment, we are building a tub bass as our first instrument. We found an old bed frame with some good wood and wares for the build just a couple blocks in the hood. The neck has a natural warp that will fit onto a 5 gln bucket for the tub. My daughter was…

Edgel,, talked to guy at "the shack" he collects old radios..  per him ,, he says i can just add a jack in line with the volume control and that lets me into the radio when i plug it up .. He seems to think the wattage  would b more than enough to run ... Wouldn"t it b something if it turns out to b that simple ?? ,, Could use the old bax n all as amp    YYYaay
