Hello Peeps,

Not quite got my shed ready to start building my Bandsman although hopefully when it warms up here I'll get going......So in the meantime I thought I'd share some of my progress with my college course.ย 

No laughing at the back at my attempt to build this small acoustic parlour guitar. There have been lots of mistake and huge learning curves during this whole process. We've been using hand tools throughout the build with only using a router to make the channel for the rosette.....oh and a bandsaw for big cuts.ย 

I started the course at the end of January and will finish at the beginning of June.......the guitar may or may not be completed by then.

We've just stopped for the Easter holidays so I thought I'd post some pictures of the jobs done so far .... some more successful than others. I'll post the pictures over the next few days as I upload them.ย 

🎸🙂🎶🙏

@thepath @markbailey @cazdaz Looks like while trying to update this thread I've managed to delete the whole thing. Does anyone know how to get it all back? 😕😱ย

It looks like I won't be able to get the posts back so I'll post some of the pictures again without all the descriptions just to give a wee timeline of the build. I'll do a more in-depth description when I post my second parlour build.ย 

🙏🎶🎸🙂
