Last week I showed you how to carve a guitar top but that is not the complete story. Because the top is now curved the controls (pots and switches) need to be fitted individually - here's how I do it...

Measure twice, cut once...

Watching, watching, watching ...

 

I’ve had to go back to work, but 1pm on Wednesdays is booked out in my work calendar.

Some people book “dentist appt” or “kid’s party” or “take car to garage”.

I book “Bailey workshop”.

No-one has asked me what it is yet!

Hi Mark,

Just caught up on today's session. Another good one. You even managed to throw in my favourite proverb...."Better to ask for forgiveness than permission". I've always tried to live my life following that advice. ??✌️??

Cheers,

Russ
