Re: Maple or Sycamore for purfling

I am sure others will weigh in, but I wouldn't have made a decision on aesthetics and deal with any of the problems that may have arisen from that. A single purfling is going to be very easy to deal with despite the hardness and bending a single strip on a cutaway would be relatively easy. So much s...

Re: B/wood parlour

Nice! How is the armrest attached, magnetised? Also, the endgraft is interesting with the asymmetrical end to the sides and with an ebony inlay. I feel like there is a story there. Anyhoo, very nice instrument :cl :cl

Thanks Steve. Nice demos, as usual.

No glue squeeze-out with your vacuum clamping pictorial?
Had the exact same thought.

Thanks again Steve for the great tutes

If you are using it for comparing one guitar to another then you would need careful note of any tweaked setttings

The proportions boggle my mind. Also really interesting that you add the purfling lines before you carve the rest.

Home/workshop recording studio setup help

So I have been thinking about recording samples of guitars on something a bit more professional than my iphone and setting up a recording setup. It would be just to record samples of my guitars so I don't think I need much but I really don't have much of a clue. I don't mind investing in a good setu...

3. Supersoft or fabric softener often helps with difficult woods.
I would be careful with big open grain and supersoft. We had a silky oak side all but disintegrate using a bending iron and supersoft.
