    Took a trip to Carbatec at Auburn this week to get some Titebond III and micro mesh pads. It's now my second favourite store. They even had books on making cigar box guitars!!

    More coats of TO today. Up to 22 on the front, 15 on the back, 6 on the sides and 8 on the neck. I do like TO but oh....the time and work involved. I think I might take my next project to the panel beaters next time and go for an acrylic gloss finish!?!

    Frustrating day today. Had to sand back all my headstock work and try again. Such is the life of a novice luthier!

    Glued the neck in yesterday afternoon. I won't get a chance to look at it again until Monday at the earliest. Is this a nerve racking time or what??? Next time I will set the neck first.

    I have checked the wiring (all good) and finished off the top. It's nice and shiny, still a few small scratches but I can live with that.

    Trying to get it finished before my 50th party in January, without ruining the job through impatience.
