No I do not think exercise was wrong. When I got a bad cold with a lot of congestion I took a 50 mile bike ride (salem to portland.) This ended my cold, however age does make a major difference! Preparing a guitar plate. I used a piece of wood with 60 grit sandpaper on it. I got a smooth edge, but not straight- I’m sure you are not surprised. I tried clamping the wood between 2 large t-squares and using a box cutter as a cabinet scraper.. You HAVE to scrape in the RIGHT direction! This gave me an idea Rails on each side and a way to clamp the wood between them and add a router. I bet Izzy Swan found a great way yo do this. It’s not as vintage as I would like, but I’m not a master craftsman. Off subject: I found titebond III mixed with plaster of Paris to a thick batter makes a great potting and gap filling compound. I’ve tried using Weldwood plastic resin, but it is brittle and cracks. The only way to get it off your hands is to just wear it off
I do appreciate our friendship!
