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.

Working on a few projects in the shop on this New Years Eve Day. Reading one of my favorite comics @falseknees while taking a little coffee break.

Kate made a great supper and even offered to clean up tonight so I could come down to the shop to get my wood file organized. #ebony #rosewood #spruce #cyprus #redwood

The new shop is getting all tuned up. Repairs are getting back on the bench again and I’m really excited for the new flow. Thank You to all my clients who have waited patiently during this major transition in my life. Gracias.

It’s very important to learn the different kinds of wood shavings that are made when using your tools. One tool can produce several different types of shavings depending on how you wield it. The characteristics of the shavings tell you a lot about exactly what you’re doing. I’ve found it helpful to develop a vocabulary that describes their nature and it’s enabled me to refine the subtleties of my craft over decades.
