So here we have a “video” picture show of projects from and additions to my home shop so far in 2011.

David, that was pretty cool, but i got the sudden urge to go grab a bottle of Jack. (not that I don’t often get that urge anyhow).

Good video, David. You are having too much fun in that shop this year. Does the wife really understand that you are not getting these tools free? LOL Go watch some football or something.

you’ve been busy this year! Great projects, love the blues track. Who plays guitar in it?

@Grandpa, It has been fun. The missus knows too well that nothing is free in this world we live in… and that tools are business expenses. ;=)

@Manitario, Busy is good… and a state of mind. Thanks for the kind words. That is a bit of my guitar playing. That track was an impromptu spontaneous exercise to “tryout” a new Telecaster with humbucking pickups (that make it sound unlike a Fender and more like a Gibson). I was trying to get as much grit, growl and pinch out of it as I could a Gibson. Drums are a machine. The bass player is an old pro Mark Moore. lol I can call him old… I like that !

awesome, Your playing rocks! I’ve been playing guitar now for almost 20 years; started off playing Clapton and BB King, back when I thought that blues guitar was the best way to impress girls…Most of my playing these days is limited to acoustic folk but I still have the urge to blister the paint with some blues riffs, just hard to find guys to jam with in my area. I like the sound of the Tele; what amp are you running it through?

@manitario, “Ain’t no one to run with any more” is true. I have several amps (Marshall, couple of Fenders, Peavey rack rig), but that track was recorded direct to the board and used only Roland COSM effects. Yes, I have and love teles and Les Pauls, but not one with a single coil pickup.

Back to wood, my favorite guitar is a solid Walnut (except the ebony fretboard) 1978 The Paul that I bought new and will never sell. It is nowhere near my most expensive, but it is the always keeper.

@WayneC, I tried that after I saw you do it on Charlie’s. I went to Youtube, shared, then copied the embed code. I plopped it on the next post and it was blank ??? Is that the procedure ? Thanks, Wayne.

Okay, I claim the best photography Oscar, but you kicked my a$$ in the music department, my friend. :-)

@CharlieM1958, You claim right. Your pictures (both the camera and the mind’s eye that composed them) are great. I showed them both to the missus on the 60” 1080p (it streams from the net) and those HD shots hold up EXCELLENT at that size !!!

Now Charlie, that is just a slow blues. Thanks for the kind words, but the better vintage stays in the vault ;=)... I think bluegrass might be appreciated here… down the road (when I have enough new project pictures to support it).

David, I usually go for the black, but don’t be surprised if you see a green or gentleman, or a special edition. A friend of mine just sent me a registered bottle of the 160th birthday edition.

I need to pull a project in Georgia. One of the new things on my bucket list is make it to “DMI Home Center”. I know, I know, pretty sad isn’t it.

Don W, LOL hoping you mean sad that you have a bucket list. ;=) Well, I got one, too.

As for the DMI Home Center visit… that will take about 15 minutes for the tour of the showroom to see full cabinet displays, counter tops of all kinds (Corean, granite, Cambria, Wilsonart, etc.), Progress lighting, Monte Carlo ceiling fans, Danze and other plumbing fixtures, all types of flooring (ceramic and porcelain tile, hardwood, laminate, Shaw and Queen carpet), windows and doors, Pamex / Faultless knobs/levers/locksets… just all the good stuff to remodel with.

But come on ! We’ve got room for you and the grill never really gets to cool all the way down. Just gimme a heads up so I can clean the shop ;=) and inventory and bolt all the planes down !!! ;=) (you having the affliction so bad and all)... and the Catawba tree is not big enough to cut down and resaw yet !!!
