As you can see...

The photo shows progress in making a box guitar. The screws holes have been pre-drilled into the solid maple so they will enter the wood in an accurate position and without splitting the wood. Those who have worked with hardwood will know that it is called "hard" for a reason. Nails cannot enter the wood without bending or splitting. Screws? pilot holes are required. Most hardwoods have amazing strength and density, and maple in particular is hard and dense. Blocking glued on the inside of the guitar box gives additional strength to the attachment of box and neck.

My goal today is to get as many photos of guitar making done as I can so that when I go to a family reunion next week, I'll have editing and captioning to do in my spare time.

This weekend at ESSA, the Stateline Woodturners will meet for a demonstration and class. Stateline Woodturners are from Missouri and North Arkansas and is an organization chartered by the American Association of Woodturners. I welcome them to our new facility and wish them happy turning and learning at The Eureka Springs School of the Arts.

Make, fix, create, and adjust your own life to assist others in learning likewise.
