Well, actually that was the inspiration. Thanks for the heavenly compliment!

That's funny!

You will forever be family in the Kinnaird Galaxy!

Similarly in the Build Thread Cyberspace Galaxy.

To Tom, Steve and Ryan... nice team work! It's really looking more and more special, can't wait to see more.

Thanks so much. It is a joy when these collaborations stretch you as an artist, and open your eyes to possibilities you hadn't dreamed of.

Steve

Heck Tom, possibly cousins but I think it possibly makes us brothers from another mother lol. Whatever the case, I'm excited for what Steve is putting together for you. Looks like the beginnings of a masterpiece!

Great to see the progress! Love seeing a guitar shape emerge from flat pieces of wood. That is DREAMS BECOMING REAL! Hey Tom, you know I'm getting a contact buzz, watching this build!

Steve and Ryan- great work, guys!
I have the same electric bending iron you are using, and mine gets covered with resin and guck too. But I recently discovered, you can clean it up very easily, using some Easy-off Oven Cleaner. Just spray it on, leave it overnight, and wipe off the crud in the morning- and you're down to bare metal again! Just thought I'd pitch in two cents worth of unsolicited blah-blah!

Thanks Steve,

It is really starting to come fast and furious now and looking really good....

Now I have a wine stain on a cotton shirt, can you help me with that???? Your solution is probably better than most as it seems to me that WD 40 is the answer for most everything on the forum from arthritic fingers to fret board woes.....

That's one word for it. "Grateful" is another. When you hold expensive wood that has been hoarded for years, awaiting just the right project, and then start to coerce it into a double S at over 300 degrees, it may not look exciting, but believe me it is. Who needs extreme sports to get an adrenaline rush? Go bend some fragile, irreplaceable wood some time. And when done, give hearty thanks if all went well.

Stu, and Steve, appreciate the kind words!

Steve
