King Oscars Daniel. The best kind.

I miss my Dad too. after rethinking, i realized taking all the paint would be selfish, i knew it then, others need to enjoy as well. my bad for staying from your hobo fiddle friendliness.

oh, can you bring some sardines.

Ya Daniel. At my dad’s passing we had a big rummage sale and I lost most all of his history but I kept a few things I treasure. I have some still workable oil paint from his paint box. I miss him.

The oil paint is from my dear Dad's Stash. A fellow starving artist, although he has paintings all over the country hanging on walls. He had two large drawers  of oil paints, and two with acrylic. I should have taken them all, what was I thinking? Plus about 100 brushes. I knew he wanted me to have them, but I was being humble..................

Mellow yellow oil paint? Don’t slip on the tube Daniel. 

Comment by Daniel Walter on October 12, 2019 at 7:56pm

I'm a mellow fellow. Except when i'm with somebody or by myself.  :)

I havre a tube of mellow yellow oil  paint upstairs. guess it has your name on it now.

Thanks Daniel. I’ve just started another one like this one. A relic Cheroots box and poplar neck. Color me Cello Yellow. “They call me Cello Mellow”. That’s Right.

Nice to see a builder staying focused and keeping it simple and complex at the same time. color me envious.

Thanks AGP. I probly overuse those strainers but they are so versatile and easy, I can’t resist. So far they have held up very well without string balls pulling through or deforming from string tension. And 24 for 7$ !

Nice Finale to an enjoyable series Dave!, I particularly like the Strainer Tailpieces pieces you use on a lot of your builds, I too have a healthy supply of them, but neglect use them enough!  :-)
