I hate waiting for glue to dry!  Okay, so I jumped in head first on my first build.  I have only screwed up something like, oh, one or two dozen times.  ;)  but I seem to find some way to "fix" it.  lol  I have some machine heads that I am "Making" work and my cutting job is something to be desired.  It is my first one though and I am learning a lot from the small mistakes I have made.  It is turning out though!  I can not wait to string it up...  If I can get the bridge and nut right *Coughs* and fixed, kind of have a grand canyon at my neck with the fret board on (currently drying)...  That is what scrap wood is for I suppose.
