Hi All

This my first post I am new to the group. I retired 5 years ago and decided to convert my garage into a guitar workshop to build acoustic steel string guitars. Two years ago I built my first 'OM' and in Jan 2018 I completed a 'GS' model guitar, this being my 5th build. Refer to pdf photo attachment. I also have made a recording, refer to Youtube.

I do appreciate the wealth of knowledge and experience in this forum.

Wayne

Thanks for the comments and it great to part of the forum.

I obtained the 'Queensland Blackwood' and 'Silver Quandong' from 'Australian Guitar Timbers' (David Linton,Maleny, Queensland). I had a couple of Jarrah floor boards stored away and managed to glue the Jarrah floor boards together. I was then was able to make the Jarrah Bindings and Jarrah veneer for the arm rest bevel with my Band Saw and Drum Sander.

Wayne

G'day Wayne,
Very nice guitars mate you should be proud of.
I have just retired myself and like to spend lots of time in the workshop building or just planning and thinking about projects.
Welcome to the forum it is a great place to learn.
I have received great advice from here for many years when ever a problem or mistake occurs with one of my builds.
Cheers
Alan
