« Part 29: Queen Anne Side Table - Contemplating the finish Part 30 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 31: Dreadnought Guitar - Assembling the sides and kerfed linings »

Things are winding down on the Queen Anne Side Table project (more tom come on that in a future post) so, I’ve been thinking ahead to what is next. I have lots of furniture projects queued up but, I won’t start those until the table is finished and out. I’m always up for a challenge so, I’ve come up with something interesting…take a look at my latest post and let me know what you think.

Good luck Mark – both at making the guitar and not having to buy new tools! If the guitar turns out as nice as your table—- you’ll have a bragging piece.

That’s on my to do list one of these days – but I think I’ll go the electric route.

Thanks for the encouragement guys & gals. I’m looking forward to the new challenge.

Betsy – You could be right about the battle with new tools but, I guess that battle would not be so painful to loose ;-)

I am going to build a guitar from a kit soon. I started a site to sell guitar stands but haven’t worked out the legalities on my stands so I have listed a few guitars and what I think are great priced guitar kits but have along way to go to finish site. These kits are not as in depth as the one you have listed, more for beginners.

When you get a kit finished let me know Mark I would like to link to it.

You are going to love it, but you will suffer through some frustrations, too. Just keep building parts. Here is one I posted.

Rikkor,

I think seeing your posting originally pushed me over the edge to finally get moving on this. Thanks for the nudge!

By the way did you finish the Parlor Guitar? I’d love to see some completed pictures.

I haven’t worked on it for a while. There were the Christmas projects, Easter, the challenge, and the pen swap all getting in the way. Soon, I hope.

Have your say...
