Thanks JD. My shop vac gobbles pencils like magic. Now you see it, then Shazam!

Thanks Uncle John. I worked all day on Big Box. It’s ready for the gear and finish. Tuners, Piezo wiring, tail steamer leaf, nut and strings in episode 4 ((maybe tomorrow)). Might go to the lake though. :D)

Nancy, what is that cat on top doing?

Man, good sounds too.  You know the drill.

Comment by Uncle John on November 12, 2019 at 4:00pm

Wowzers looky at that! Cool Dave cant wait to hear it! Meeeowww^..^

Can't wait to see the sound board.  All of my pencils are also magic; they seem to always vanish into thin air.

AGP, The fat pencil is a gift from Daniel Walter. He claims it’s magic. I think it needs sharpening. I don’t loose it though. That’s part of the magic.

AGP, I might as well just poke a hole with my xacto to start my building day and get it over with. However no blood was shed on part two. Part 3’s begun. Today should get it close to finished except for strings and setup. I think bleeding is just Man-Stration. :*).  It was below 0 f this morning. It will be very cold in my shop.

Intriguing Dave!, I see we use similar tools in a similar fashion, but!, I must say my pencil is a bit smaller and sharper than yours!, didn't see any blood in part 2, I currently have AGP #373 on the bench, no blood so far on this one, but I'm sure there is bit of my blood on nearly every one of the previous #372  :-D
