Closed the box on first build

Post by John Reid »

First build. I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been busy. Much of my time is spent building jigs (which I enjoy), reading, and watching a lot of videos. Especially Blues Creek videos. Thank you so much, John, they are soooo helpful!

Here’s some pictures of where I am now. Started in August-2020. The box is closed. I have the end wedge to put in and some sanding and filling of tear out on the back to do.

Right now I am in the middle of building a jig to route the binding and purfling.

Now you’ve done it! :-)

Progress is progress, even if it takes a while.

Beautiful. Really clean and neat. We've seen the rosette before but it's worth cheering again. Nice rosette!
