Well, it IS a rockabilly band!!!
I've decided to hang up my luthierie tools and combine my two loves...
Beer and wood.[no, not at the same time!!!] I live in Vancouver, the land of $300,000 1 bedroom condo retro-hipsters.I'm designing some '50's-'60's portable bars for the scenesters out here. Should be fun if I can find a shop....damn!!!...they're expensive out here!!!!:censored:

You must be pretty good...my attempts have turned $1 into $0 and frustration :laughing:. I have sold wood to luthiers both tone woods and solid body stock, it is in FAR better hands than mine now. Making a musical instrument of any type is a craft in itself, combining wood/steel/bone...whatever into something that "works".
