Guitar pics, no pun intended
Well, the bedroom reno is finally pretty much done and the monkey made it through alive. Just the odd finishing touch left to be done. Here are the wardrobes that ate my bedroom. They're massive! They allowed us to cut our closet space by about a third, which makes the tiny room feel a little bigger.
Can you believe I thought I could assemble these monstrosities myself? Not one of my brighter ideas.
This is a steel string guitar that I built about 15 years ago. It's got a red cedar top, satinwood sides, and...
a holly, satinwood and mahogany pieced back with purpleheart binding. Quilt inspiration? You bet!
This dyed targhee arrived today from Spinning Bunny. The colours are gorgeous and the fibre is very soft. It's going to make beautiful hats and socks. Maybe a lacy scarf.
The spindle is from a local guy. It's 1.4g and has an oak shaft and flamed maple whorl. Love the hook on this thing, it's perfect. I initially thought the carving on the shaft would bug me, but it doesn't affect winding the cop at all and the spindle spins like a dream.
