Building guitars is also not an activity I have been partaking in since relocating to Regina. Building requires a proper space for sure but more importantly it requires a consistent and controlled work environment that is not easily achieved without a dedicated work space. Without the ability to control humidity the likelihood of a failed building project increases dramatically. If parts get assembled under different conditions moisture content (or lack of) can leave stress at joints that can lead to warping, shifting, and cracking. This is not worth the risk when you are dealing with tonewood. The most I accomplish these days is repairing instruments, doing setups, adjustments, and installations on existing instruments.
Perhaps in the near future there will be something to share here but until then feel free to pretend along with me.
