It has been quite a while since I posted much on LJ. Lots of different projects and tasks, some of them woodworking and some not during that interim. I posted this over on WCI, but I thought this might be of interest over here.

Six years ago this month, I purchased a decrepit archtop guitar on eBay, planning to refurbish it and learn a little lutherie along the way. I stripped it and repaired the top as well as my limited knowledge allowed, and it looked OK. The sound was satisfactory, but not great. I was pleased, but then again, my guitar playing skills are very average. The first two photos are of the before and after views.
