I love being in my woodshop. It doesn't matter what I'm building, just as long as I can go out there, slowly clean an area up and then make something cool.
Today's projects included a new point-of-sale display for my Snake Oil Guitar Slides for the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale MS and a new Mountain Tenor guitar kit by C. B. Gitty.
The Delta Blues Museum asked if I could make a smaller display that would rest on top of the gift shop counter. Being that it's a complete honor to have my guitar slides in there, I got to work making something cool for them.
The display started with an antique Havana tobacco tin. I placed a piece of barnwood inside and used a spade drill bit to cut holes for the slides. I added a small sign in front. It tool longer to design than to build!
The second project is a C. B. Gitty Mountain Tenor guitar kit. I asked them to print the face with a barnwood photo to make it extra special.
I've also stained the neck and box sides/back with English Chestnut stain. It's so humid today, so everything is taking forever to dry. Hopefully I can start assembling tomorrow.
Here's a live Facebook video I did in the shop today.
