A man’s wife can complain and can fume
So a collection can spell a man’s doom
But she said to her spouse
Lets buy a new house
Your guitars need their very own room

Now that's my kind of woman!

The guys on this forum are decent
I came on this thread only recent
But bards you are not
If you'll let me just chime in
In the words of Vizzini "Stop rhymin"

Robert, I feel your pain.
But I must add a line…or five:

There was an old vet from New York, (oh boo)
Who’d much rather play than do work. (et tu?)
He came down to Texas,
That lutherie Nexus,
But all he could find was a dork. (Or two)

You are very wise for someone so young,
and words flow easily from thy tongue.
I do have a collection of worth,
and it fills me with warmth and of mirth.

Truer words are not spoken,
Of Kathy my love is unbroken.
She says not about what I choose,
As long as I don't mention her shoes!

Stop rhyming and I mean it,
Does anybody want a peanut?
Bards we may not be,
But clever I think are we!

When the guitar making comes to an end,
Writing prose is where the new life begins.
You are clever and smart right to the end,
And I am glad that I call you my friend!

More work has been done in Nacogdoches
most likely fueled with some custard filled donuts.
That was a weak rhyme and I know it,
This rhyming ain't easy, but I don't want to quit.

So first it is sanded in this high tech machine
To make sure the radius is just what it seems.
The back is glued on with care and delight,
It fits they all scream with very little fight.

Looking good guys--should be beautiful under finish!

That mesquite is so nice...and knowing that your lining is beautiful is an added bonus!

Thank you Kevin and John for stopping by,
A few more pics now to meet the eye.

First Ryan is routing the sound port without a cuss,
then his favorite, sanding the top radius.

Steve bending the binding for the headstock,
Delicate work, but steady as a rock.
This little prose thread started from nowhere,
But you can see they continue now elsewhere!

A bridge is made to hold the strings,
This piece of wood much joy it brings.

I picked this over another lighter one,
as I love the sapwood and darkness so it won.

There is also a little red that shows somehow,
it may darken but sure is pretty now.

Carving the bridge is an enjoyable art,
A beautiful curve from a rectangular start.

This one came out particularly nice,
I am glad I picked it, really didn't think twice.

Dennis you are way too cool,
too cool for school and too young to drool.

Folks we have a box with tx sitka for a top,
Next comes bindings and purfling to make it pop.
Check out that ole' hackberry,
I think is is awesome and it makes me merry!

Remember that top was found,
in a shipyard in Houston town.
50 years have passed since it was sold,
How old beyond that we do not know.

The box is done and all sanded clean,
Routing the edges would make me green.
The bindings are waiting up on deck,
So get er done boys but please don't wreck!
