Shop reno and cleanup

This fall I took some time to improve the workshop. Some optimization of space was required, not to mention the huge amount of wood scraps of all kinds to evaluate. On of the wall required adequate cladding, which became a good anchor to build a spacious shelf for storing materials, and which now allowing me to circulate underneath giving me precious square feet. Other small spots were revisited at the same time. The cleaning and elimination of the various useless materials and tools were still the big part of the time allotted to the operation. The result now gives me a lot of pleasure going back to the making.

Black & White Album

Following an invitation from the French guitarist Camille Pla, member of the Oxycord quartet, in my turn I presented a series of photos on my personal fb wall.
I therefore reproduce this album here, while adding 7 more unpublished photos, which add to this particular moment during the making of the guitar, where the neck is finalized and joined to the sides of the body, in the Spanish way, thus becoming the core of the guitar.
Being a milestone in the whole making, that moment still gives me much pleasure.

The invitation: 7 days. 7 photos in black & white. No humans. No explanations.
