Hey everybody. I just joined and I’m really looking forward to learning from the folks here.

I’m a guitar player by trade (well, by hobby) and I’ve always been interested in wood working. Over the years I’ve built a couple of guitar speaker cabinets and now I’ve started a small business building pedal boards and cabs. I’ve found that this hobby is very satisfying.

Here are a couple of my recent builds. I’ve started messing with dovetails and I can say I really like the way they look and their strength. Early stuff was just standard joints. :)

-- Thank you Lord for the passion and ability to make things from your creation.
