I’m a life long woodworker, I’ve built everything from houses to cabinets to furniture. Guitar building is my latest obsession, I find it very satisfying, and relaxing, except when I cut the sides 3 times only to find there still to short.

Awesome. You build everything from scratch or use kits?

Man, those are fantastic! As a player myself, I really hope to get into guitar building one day.

so beautiful and what a wonderful treasure to have an instrument made with your own two hands.
don’t you just hate it when the wood is still too short after you re-cut?? !! :)

Awesome. I have been considering doing an acoustic but haven’t gotten up the courage yet.

Beautiful work brother. I bet they sound warm. Did you also build the piece behind the chair?

Caution, I also play, and wanted a Martin D28 (3000.00+) Then I found martin made kits to build your own for only 400.00 – 650.00 so I purchased one. Although I have a full workshop with every tool and machine on the planet: so I thought, it cost me an additional 3000.00+ for jigs, building forms and special tools to complete the project correctly, and there is still more I would like to purchase. I have built 8 now and sold 2, so I’ve recouped my expensive s If you still want to build let me know, I’ll share my mistakes with you.
