STEPS IN ERRANT LUTHIERIE: A Journey from Wood to Sound in 13 Steps
Steps in Errant Lutheirie (1):
Flat boards, coming together: Cherry and spruce... It took some time, but a tischler (carpenter) around the corner was finally able to thin these down for me...
- the following days will see the evolution of my new home-made (in the kitchen actually) guitar.
A big thank you to everyone who helped me fund this project late last year when the green pear guitar was lost: it's finally coming together!

Steps in Errant Luthierie (2)
Bending sides: I had in mind a heat gun that I know is hiding somewhere in my boxes of unsorted things (anyone need an intern position?) - but lacking patience after a day's search, I opted for a modified wood burner - I jammed on what appears to be an aluminum rod. - yeah, that's sometimes how things come together: we bring a Form from the Chaos.
Steps in Errant Luthierie (5):
The X-Brace unveiled: scalloped splinters in the axis mundi of space and time re-enforced on the underside through cherry slice...
Braces are strength and architecture though also in-forming factors... of the more consideration worthy factors in the process....
