Default Making a guitar. And woodworking like you would not believe.

I was totally amazed. I've saved this, because it is so amazing to me. Techniques and tools I know I can use at sometime or another. Talk about precise woodworking, you've got to see it to believe it.

Yes, it's a blast building a guitar! Lots of ways to be creative and think outside the box. I saw that video after I finished my build - it's a very good video.

Here are a few shots of my build -

Thanks for sharing that video, I would not have looked for it on my own, but I did watch it, it sounded interesting...and it was!

Michael is located just about 30 minutes from me and he is a world class craftsman. Godin guitars(also in Quebec) also world renown is a factory, Greenfield is a small 2 man shop, the difference is obvious. The prices are out of reach for most, but then again this craftsmanship is worth the extra if you can afford it. The guy that taught me the difference between carpentry and fine woodworking, Gary Dover, has retired and is now enjoying making musical instruments. In a local newspaper there have been articles covering a violin and a harp that he made. Both were beautiful.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

Ha, I wish I could find stuff like that by looking for them. I was looking alright, but not for anything even close to that, not even related to woodworking or music.

I have a book on harp making, and one day. In the meantime, do a search on google, using FREE HARP PLANS, and you will get tons of plans, free, pay, kits, etc. I have learned that putting -PINTEREST in the search phrase filters out a load of trash, I seldom have ever found what was posted. The smaller, older, designs aren't that complicated. Post picture when you finish.
