Top Job - looking good! Excited to see how the neck carve comes out...it is not as hard as you think...just take it step by step. 😎 

Measure twice, cut once...

I have to agree with all that's been said about appropriate 'pacing', comestible sampling and beverage top-ups. I was going to mention something about the inverse ratio of bladder retention against age and the need to be aware of distance to facility, but then remembered the garden.

However, you can never have too many clamps. Mark taught me that.

Do the clamps influence bladder retention?

You can never have too many clamps...or cups of tea...I have one handy now sitting 1/3 full luke warm...(my bladder - not the cup) 🙄

@frocesterbill

That's a tricky one.

There's the coefficient of apparent contraction due to extreme cold, various variable thresholds (pressure, pain and efficacy) and the perceived political pantomime when caught in the act. (just deny everything)

Not to be recommended.

Getting a bit ‘off piste’ (pun intended!) but aren’t these always the best conversations?

Essential topical listening, as is pretty much everything by David Sedaris!

Brilliant... Many thanks for that. I am reminded of the classic Billy Connolly story.

Yes, I know it's not about guitar making per se, however, there are many ancillary activities pertinent to H&S in the workshop that need discusing now and then.

Carving the neck is taking time! Almost done the first three facets. I'm using a Japanese saw rasp (Shinto).

Half carved

Shinto's are brilliant.... An angle grinder is even more brilliant.... 😎 

Measure once, cut straight away and maybe you're lucky......
