Hi everyone. I've been a premium member since March but just now getting around to making this post. I suppose I could tell you a little about myself:

 Well, I'm 37 and a lifelong resident of Michigan. I started playing guitar in 2008 at the age of 24 and it quickly became one of my favorite things. Most of my time playing consists of improvising over backing tracks, in case anyone was wondering. My Youtube channel: youtube.com/wayneguitar84 . My first guitar (an Ibanez Gio) was my only guitar for about 10 years until I bought a modern Fender HH Telecaster and then in 2019 I bought an Ibanez AZ. 

 I've been wanting to build guitars for at least the last 2 or 3 years. I finally found the Guitar Making youtube channel about a year ago and started watching all the videos and live streams. It's been a pretty slow start for me seeing as how I couldn't do much until I got a bandsaw which didn't happen until the beginning of August. Now I'm in the process of making patterns and jigs and working on my drawing which is almost finished. Over the past few months I've been slowly purchasing necessary tools and parts. 

Alright, see you guys in the showcase section soon.
