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

Besides raising a family of 4 kids here, keeping the fleet of rides on the road, fixing the house, dealing with work, the list goes on, as with the rest of every other person breathing air. But what makes our free time more exciting is taking the time to learn how to build unique musical instruments.

Hats off to all you Luthiers taking the best challenge in your lives. Creating a legacy that will follow you forever, or until someone in the government takes out our history annuls.…

Early American Mandolin

This will be my third mandolin restoration in the past 6 years. I keep finding these discarded and abused by several owners. Most people think these instruments are toys and treat them as such. My challenge is ahead of me now. Split head down the peg line, warped neck, but to the body too thick by at least a 1/4". Cracked tail section, missing support arches on the back shell. This old ghost has been hammered and others took the time to try to mend it. Now its called a wall hanger by…

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
