@steveadams.

Another great job well done Steve. Good tip to use the offcuts to practice with first. I'll have to see if I can find myself a helping hand..... great double act.

@steveadams

Good job and very brave to let someone else work your wood. I don’t like those European type mains plugs where the earth is an open terminal on the outside, alway fit a UK plug once the year guarantee is up.

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

Don't worry about the small fracture - it will be removed during the 'shaping the back' procedure...

Thanks everyone...@bpower @koendb @mattbeels @rocknroller912 @russ

Really appreciate your comments..I'm afraid to say that I had to sack my assistant, he was making too many demands and becoming very high maintenance...!!!

Next video coming v soon...

Thanks @markbailey I was a little bit worried when I noticed the split...

Cheers

Steve

Great video @steveadams  

Glad to see you're having fun even at a stressful bit of making an acoustic. 

Trying to make a living out of a hobby doesn't work 🙂

@steveadams Hey Steve, I haven’t forgotten about you and these videos, I just haven’t got around to watching them yet. I think I watched the first one so I’ve got some catching up to do. 
My gardening season has just started so I’m out at work and then I am building guitars and other stuff when I get in. 
I’m aware that your videos are legendary and I am not ignoring you, I just need to find some time. 

Keep going man. 🤘😁🤘🎸

Make guitars, not war 🌍✌️🎸

Another great video Steve - thanks for taking the time to make & post these installments.

Apologies for the delayed response.  I've not been working.  Just spending a too much time doing "stuff" ...

I tuned in today expecting (not really) to see it all finished.

What's going on @steveadams??

Or are you still waiting for the laggard @boo to manage to catch up??

Hey TV

I haven't been slacking... I haven't been in the country!!! I had a job last week in Abu Dhabi and I'm currently in the midst of quarantine before I can come home..

Luckily I'm not spending 11 days in a hotel room at Heathrow as when the govt opened up Portugal we were able to slip in there...

 

So once I've left the Algarve and get home around 30th I'll be back on the job. .

 

Can't wait

Cheers

Steve

Sorry, but I'm not sure how that's relevant.

Surely you could have taken the kit and a few tools with you??

 

Enjoy the holiday!

Quarantine in the Algarve hmmmm doesn’t sound too difficult, probably warmer than here. You would have missed the hailstones last Sunday afternoon then.

@steveadams

Glad I’m in tune with your family thinking, it just proves what a hive mind the Bailey community is. I believe May is a record cold month here so make the most of whatever sun you are getting, it might be your only chance this year.
