Hi, everybody! I started a build thread for my first two guitar builds about FIVE years ago, and wound up shelving the project indefinitely because of the birth of my second daughter. I had absolutely no idea how the difficulty of child rearing goes up exponentially with each added child. I am glad that I put the guitars on hold, because in the interim I made several awesome pieces of furniture, acquired a bunch of new tools, and honed my woodworking skills. Breakfront cabinet - ambrosia maple and walnut Wardrobe/Game Cabinet - mostly oak. I was going to just pick up in my old build thread, but after reading back through, it’s pretty embarrassing. I made a lot of rookie mistakes, many of which should have caused me to scrap the first pieces of wood and start over, but I powered through and made a guitar out of them anyway. Here’s a link if you want to see my screwups and freakouts, but I’ll gloss over those and just hit the highlights this time around. http://www.mylespaul.com/threads/first-build-turned-into-two.296227/ I'll cover some of the fixes for prior mistakes, but will try not to get way into the weeds on basic woodworking goofs. Some of the solutions I came up with would never have occurred to me five years ago without the furniture experience I gained in between.
