    I have no clue, depends on work and how long this overtime will continue. Right now I'll take all I can get because I know it won't last forever. But there are some things I would like to make, some weather stations, clocks, the usual turning things just for fun. Some new trim for the inside of the house that will be all wood and clear finished. And I really need a new work bench!
    And my Texas brothers hooked me up with a bunch of skeet that I am anxious to play with!

    Understand your apprehension (several times over)—
    I’ve got woods for that. We both like Mesquite, but have lots of Sycamore—> easier to hollow

    Thank you David, I appreciate the offer but I'm doing it out of a Mesquite tree that grew in his front yard, it was his favorite tree.

    Gonna try and close in part of the shop and climate control it so I can work out there comfortably all seasons. Impossible to heat the entire uninsulated building during the winter, although most winters (the one just passed excepted) it's not unbearable but a few days. Typically May through October the heat in there is stifling however, temps 110 - 115 degrees, and unlike you folks out there in the desert where that's normal, that's frequently accompanied by 60 - 90% humidity. Can't walk across the shop and pick anything up off the work bench without breaking a sweat.

    Hope to have time to work on a couple more guitars.? Not sure how my time will manage out. I also want to attempt a coffee table I've had planned for quite awhile. All real joinery of coarse. No metal parts.

    Just do it :rolleyes: and remember 1 cubic inch per pound. Do you have a hollowing rig?

    I do not Lou. I've got a Sorby hollowing tool, hopefully that will be enough.

    From recent experience...especially if you are using mesquite, you might think about investing...got mine for $150.00 from @Spinartist ’s friend and made a world of a difference.

    You might consider a two piece HF... much easier for medium to large forms. I haven’t done any segmented stuff, but it would also be easier since you can hollow as you build it up.

    Have already worked on and completed a new project this summer. I'll be posting a thread with details and pics once I have a chance to get some decent pics of it in use.

    Other than that, it'll be finishing the shop reorganization - I am nearly done with that. Have several tools I plan to start restoration work on this summer as well.
