    The etched cross hatching is restrained and effective. Classy. Makes me wanna just start scratching thangs.

    I studied etching in art school, so i tend to approach my 'engraving' like an etching, which is different to traditional engraving.

    I have a garage workshop (with a metal roof) so in winter it's just too damp to build. Decided to build a drum sander to pass the time as even used prices in the UK are too high. Used mainly old parts I had lying around but it seems to work pretty well so far. I used 1/4" thick extruded aluminium pipe (5" diameter) for the drum and once trued covered in hook and loop.

    That looks fairly badass! How's the feed belt run?

    Belt runs really true. The rollers are from an old treadmill and are slightly convex which I think helps everything run in a straight line.

    You have one heck of a shaft on it. One day I will get around to making a better one.

    I am finishing some guitars that I started last year. Remember the 2" x 4" challenge? I built this 00 sized guitar using one 2" x 4", aside from the end blocks, the walnut binding and jatoba fretboard and bridge.

    Ken, those fretboards look wonderful. Huge fan of colorful, striped rosewood (also cheeky coffee mugs!)

    I'm not a luthier and not even a very good player, but I love following this thread. I feel as if I'm part of a fascinating secret society! Thanks to all of you for sharing your talents.
