Hey LumberJocks ~ Sorry I haven’t posted for quite some time, I have a lung disease called COPD and the damn dust keeps me out of the shop quite a bit. Being a good Lumber Jock I guess I will draw my last breath with saw dust in it. I am sure not going to let this disease keep me away from doing the thing I love doing most WOODWORKING ~ Anyways Folks here is what I have been up to the last while ! ~ God Bless Woodmight

That is a beautiful piece. I would love to learn from someone that really knows how. I think I could do it okay but I want to do it the right way. Looks to me like you have a firm grip on the right way. keep after it!

Absolutely beautiful! Though I am not, I grew up around blue grass musicians and my grandfather also built banjos….makes me think of him. Nicely done.

How many hours do you put into a single instrument?

Hey great to see you back in the shop and so happy your feeling up to getting back at it. Your new pieces show that you have not lost a step in your absents. They look awsome and I believe that if your doing something you love it is the best thing for your health and well being. God bless and best wishes, Kory
