I’ve got an absolutely legendary Gibson L-00 from the late 1920’s on the bench tonight. Always a pleasure and an honor to have the trust of my clients with these gems.

Getting caught up on repairs? Well, not really, but I am moving forward. The final phase of re-joining a split top on this LaPlant mandolin is beginning this evening. It’s always a pleasure to work through the f-holes, exclusively. After almost 20 years doing this work I’ve developed enough tricks to make the hard jobs easy.

Been brewing up an old fashioned wood ebonizer for the past month. Looking forward to decanting the batch and testing on different wood species to witness the varied results.

Working on a fantastic #gibson #countrywesternmodel from the 50’s. This one had a lifting bridge, under which I discovered a pool of hardened epoxy that must have been used in a repair at some point during the last 50 years. It’s been a good project cleaning it up, and it’s got the foulest aroma. Hoping to have the bridge reglued before bed. @thegreatbritishbakingshow in the background making the evening quite enjoyable.

Having my business at home is pretty great for many reasons. This morning I answered emails and did paperwork FROM MY BED. This evening, I get to take advantage of a quiet hour to tinker with this Taylor guitar.
