Take a long look at your sculpture Stewart; it’s the last you will see of it! Spread the Titebond. Not too much; we don’t want a mess inside there. In the Shaker tradition, even though we can’t see it, The Almighty can. The plywood caul is flexible enough to follow the curvature of the back or front.
We had the privilege to see Stevie Wonder discover the Z-Stik. We have interest from all over the world!Stevie said that he was going to use the z-stik on his next recording. The NAMM stands for- National Association for Music Merchants.
Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should.

Stocks above, and view of grain below.This is the harp I made from plans from MusicMakers back in 2007, out of walnut boards. http://harpmaking.blogspot.com/Here is the rough stoc...
Another easy project to consider making as a gift. Plus, you get to hear Nirvana on the thumb piano! Well, sort of.
I’ve had several requests for pickin’ stick plans. I’ve now posted the plans that I put together a couple of years ago. If you build one, please make sure to post a picture so everyone can see it. Enjoy! http://www.soundsofdovecreek.com/Building%20a%20Pickin%20Stick.pdf
