2018 Stephen Kinnaird
 
Happy New Year to you all. Im going to try something a little different this year, and well just see how it works out. My goal is to post a picture from our shop each work day this year. It may be of a build process or a guitar, but hopefully you will stop by and find something interesting. Of course we may have a build thread or two, and please ask any questions, but I thought some might like a daily pictorial.

Happy New Years Ryan. Great idea on the pic-a-day! I would say if you have 2 go ahead and post together. Well give you credit. :)

Thanks Dennis. Some days I may post more than one picture. I definitely have a lot more pics than would be needed for one a day. Well see how the days go. ;)

We would let you Bob, but were afraid everyone would just get inured to the constant flow of celebrities, the endless hours of high level craftsmanship, and the many philosophical conversations about art and design if all someone had to do was click a button. ;) ;) ;)

Actually, we work so far out in the boonies that only DSL comes out here and it cant support the data needed to stream a cam. :(

Mark Hatcher 01-03-2018 02:28 PM

Great idea! Ill be sure to check in an see what you guys are up to. It will showcase the billion things that go into building one of these things we make! :)

Happy New Year!
Mark

Steve Kinnaird 01-03-2018 09:33 PM

Thanks bro. Which of those sets grabbed your eye, the Ebony or the Spanish Cedar? (I'm guessing the Ebony.) That's from Bob Singer, and the finished instrument will be traveling to his store, Your Perfect Guitar.

LOLOL it would have been faster to get a new one at GC, dump the old one, and go, "There, fixed it!"

Louie, we strongly considered it. In fact, we tried talking the customer into a wonderful dumpster home for this one, but he believes this one is special compared to others of the same model. Besides the special feature of a bridge that wants to raise up to let the canal barges through, Im just going to have to trust the customer. It will be fine before long. Just a day in the life of our shop.

That marquetry is really beautiful. Did it all start from Steve's over seas trip and the church ceiling???

Hey Tom, thanks. And yes, this was from the ribbed vaulted ceiling of the chapel at The Hospital (charity house) of St. Cross. Those old craftsmen had enough time on their hands (as well as skill!) to decorate an already amazing piece of work. All over Britain are lovely ceilings that just fascinate me. And looking ^up^ yields great rewards.
That said, they would probably laugh to see how their work inspired me.
Or maybe just shake their heads...

LOL I've put more than one "mistake" into my circular file cabinet... But hey, at least you get to build spectacular instruments, so I guess you got to take the good with the, well, other stuff!

I think my favorite rosettes are contrasting wood rings bordered on the inside and outside with paua rings. This one is no exception. It's lovely.
