My basement shop

My basement shop

Humidity control is very important. Here is my setup in my furnace room with a one room humidifier; it keeps my guitars-in-progress and wood sets-in-waiting properly humidified.

Various Jigs and equipment I built

Shooting board. Left-handed of course! =)

First time using the side bender I built. This is Red Rock's lutherie shop.

Pieces of the building forms before glueup, along with my thicknes sander drum disks on the right.
