    Well, I'm still considering logistical issues. I live in a dorm style apartment. Any woodworking will take place in my bed room. I don't know how I feel about getting saw dust on my bed. hahaha. I don't have any easy way to mount tools to a table and have no room for a bench. I also have absolutely no clue how I would go about finishing the guitar, where to hang it as it dries, etc.

    As I said, I'm also considering buying a "fixer upper" to get my feet wet.

    Leather dyes arrived and I have a week off from the school...
    I hope to finish the strap and the case before the break ends. :thumb:

    And... I've had awesome time with my guitar! It's getting better and better every day! :applause:

    Well, nothing new. I haven't made anything at the workshop lately. :rolleyes:
    All school and no play makes Poro a dull boy.

    I haven't even been here for a while, there's already 3 pages stuff I haven't read... :rolleyes:

    Still all quiet on this front, but I should get these side projects started again this week.
    I'm still having a week off before school starts and I've received some items...

    A swivel knife...

    ...and some carving tools. (And some leather dyes also.)

    I guess I'm having less and less excuses to wait for another perfect day to continue. :thumb:

    Guitars and Gallen-Kallela? Reminds me of something I saw once... :hmm:

    Aha! :D Found it!

    Perhaps I'll get to updating my thread too in the near future. :p

    Have fun with your leather, Poro!

    Those were good days... Oh crap, now that my cover is busted, I have to kill all those who read this.
    Could you please send a PM with your address if you read this? :naughty:

    Hmm... I have a cavity in wisdom tooth and I'm getting little tired of waiting for the removal operation (planned to happen in April, if the tooth is not starting to ache more). DIY dentistry might be the way to save some time and money also. :laugh2:

    I'm still rolling some ideas around for the strap, hoping not to bite too big chunks to swallow. I usually have these megalomaniac delusions that come crumbling down after some thinking. :fingersx:

    We'll be waiting for that!

    Fun & leather, sounds NSFW material. :naughty:

    How's the build going? Anything new here? Do I need to send someone there to help?

    She might be a little 2D, but she seems good with tools!

    Well... Nothing has happened as I've been too busy with school and family.
    The worst is now over, wifey's going back to work in couple of days and things are getting back to normal - that might mean that I'll be doing something at my work space.

    But I won't promise anything, my schedules seem to fail every time.

    Up, but not running. (Got a bad case of sciatica, second day of "funny" walking..)
    Two days school left before a weeks winter break.
    I have to make a promise here to get my lazy ass doing something - So... next week I'll have something decent to post here.

    That's a promise. :fingersx:

    Ok, still nothing decent to post as I've been sketching and discarding patterns for the strap... Nothing seems to be good (and/or easy) enough. :mad: Well, at least I haven't been lazy, just unproductive. :hmm:

    To make this post a bit less useless, here's something the postman brought today. :naughty:

    Ok, since everything went so well this week and I got almost nothing done, I have to give you guys something to make it up.
    I had to go to a private dentist to remove my wisdom tooth, which started to ache like hell... and of course the wound it got inflamed.
    Poor excuses, but hey, at least I got excuses. :naughty:

    But here's a treat for you. This is for one of my future projects, not for the next build though.

    Dammit, Poro, if I only knew, I'd hold back my Brezhnev jokes :facepalm: I'm the one with a phobia here =(
