    Beautiful work Drew, doesn't look like a first effort based on your pictures! I especially like your headstock treatment. How about a picture of the back? What's the scale length on that dred?

    Thanks man! To be ultra-transparent, this is a StewMac kit that I just added some personal touches to. I have some hobby woodworking experience, and if you held a gun to my head I could make a playable guitar from scratch, but I wanted to start with some known quantities to understand the materials at this level. There is an A5 scratch build on my workbench, though!

    Made a couple of slip-in ebony capos for bandmate's Larry Pogreba custom doubleneck steel guitar made from an old yard sale mahogany water ski. Oldest position marker is an 1803 US nickel. Double nut made from the aluminum runner on the ski bottom. Sounds 1956 with ancient teisco gold foils thru a 56 supro amp......

    A break from my mandolin build to finish this tele project: hide covered face, neck pickup ring not yet installed. I still need to string up to test and setup.

    Experimenting, as usual. Mandela size. So many firsts, hide glue exclusively, pegbox, bowl and all sorts of excursions into relevant and irrelevant historical instruments. Is Lorenzo Lippi still selling Roman Mandolin plans?

    There once was a woodbutcher named Kemnitzer,

    Cuz his mandos resembled sonic fine art.

    A crib for my impending baby! And, while I’m on paternity leave, a cool 2-point Alvarez with a detaching fingerboard and wonky handmade nut & bridge that I’ll probably replace.

    I was visiting a friend recently who has spent a good deal of time making knives. He had a few bits an bobs of things that he wasn't using and he passed on to me a nice piece of what he referred to as "stabilized boxwood burl" ... Apparently boxwood burl while very attractive is also very fragile. It is sold as "stabilized" in that it is infused or injected (who knows?) with some sort of plastic or epoxy resin.... It is beautiful stuff indeed!

    With the cost of linear motion components plummeting on the web, you can put together a three-axis contraption like this for under $300.Click image for larger version.

    Are you sure that's boxwood burl? Looks more like buckeye to me. It is cool stuff, and a good thing it's stabilized. It's almost like punk wood without some sort of help. Soaking it in super glue works well, too.

    A new A-style from the Muleskinner shop. Literally just strung up about 5 minutes before these shots. Sycamore back, neck and sides. Demo coming to Youtube channel soon.
