I've kind of been away from these pages and from making instruments for the last month or so. Lots of other demands on my time from other folks and other responsibilities. I've missed it! Now that summer's winding down and the firewood pile is building up I plan to get back to doing what I love - making and playing these things. I went to the PA CBG Fest this weekend and feel rejuvenated. Got to play on the open mic stage and meet a bunch of talented people. It was great to talk to J.Rob with whom I've had many conversations on CBN. I picked up a pickup from Dan Sleep, talked with CB Gitty Ben, Glenn Watt, Shane Speal, Stombox Johnny and listened to a wide range of music played on homemade instruments. Kim particularly enjoyed April May and the June Bugs! Picked up the book "One Man's Trash" by Bill Jehle and Jim from the Emporium told me that Bill was sitting right over there so I got him to sign it. Many thanks to all who put the festival together. It was great!

Yup Unc, I'm starting with 9 & 7/8 (old table saw incident) and I try to be  more cautious nowadays.

We know that feeling, Jim.  I was in one a couple weeks ago. 

Have fun and count your fingers before and after and try to come up with the same number.

Thanks Unc. I'm in a CBG building frenzy as we speak!
