How close are you to finishing

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

There is a wee scar but you have to look closely. I kept the scar there to remind me never to do it again

@russ nowt wrong with battle scars. ✊

@russ I really need to pull my finger out and do some binding, I’ve still not tried it yet. Thanks for the reminder.

@rocknroller912

It's not looking likely that I will get it finished before the end of course in June but I'm hoping to go back in August. I might get the body completed and possibly the neck done but I can't see me getting them together in time........you never know though. 🤞
