Blarg!

Bill's blog. Writing, guitars, gratuitous Simpsons references, you'll find i​t all here. Almost certainly a waste of time for both you and the author. On the internet, that's actually a plus.

Guitar-building project status update

I haven't had much time to work on my guitar-building project lately, but I was able to do a bit over the weekend. Here's how it looks with a neck.

Here's the neck pocket I routed out. I'm not much of a luthier (or especially skilled in woodworking in general), so I was pretty scared I was going to wreck the whole project right here. It was far from flawless, but it's good enough. The neck sits pretty tight, too, if I shim it with some cardboard from a twelve-pack of Coke Zero. Now I can tell my wife my soda addiction is beneficial!

My new project

My new non-writing creative project.

I don't do anything fast except type, so it'll probably be a while before I'm done. It's a lot of fun to work on, though. I'll be sure to show the finished project when it's done. It might even be playable! (fingers crossed)
