Default Hatcher's Workshop '15

I've finished out my Hatcher's Workshop '14 thread and will now roll into the new year with the appropriate '15. I have a lot going on this year. I'm learning and working to set up a video/sound studio so that I can include sound clips on each or most of the guitars I make. Also, I am getting pretty far along settling into my new shop and would like to show more of the shop and what I do there. In fact I'd like to eventually try to give you a sense of the environment that I'm am working in and am inspired by.

Right now I have three guitars in process. I have my new parlor model which I will do a separate build thread on and I happen to have two BRW Josie small jumbo orders I'm working on. One will have the whole abalone treatment and has some great spider webbed grain. The other will be an all wood guitar. It has a nice quarter sawn BRW set with lots of red that I'm trying to capitalize on in the design. I'll start with some pictures of that:

We're going with Bloodwood for the binding and other accents. Bloodwood is very red and tends to stay red more than any other wood:

This guitar is getting a very nice Adirondack top:

This guitar will be a short scale 24.75"
14 frets to the body
Full body small jumbo size 16" lower bout

Lot's more to come!
