The next BIG step…

Over the past several weeks I have been preparing for a big opportunity in my career as a luthier and business owner. In a previous blog you’ll see that I had my first CNC experience as a woodworker. With the help of my good friend at Hermance Machine Company (www.hermance.com) I participated in a CNC demo with C.R. Onsrud (www.cronsrud.com) making a few of my resonator guitar bodies. The demo was well received enough that the company is taking me to Las Vegas with them for the 2013 Association of Woodworking and Furnishing Suppliers Fair (http://awfsfair.org)! There will be hundreds of thousands of people in attendance, lots of contacts, exposure, and opportunity. It’s kind of a big deal.

In preparation I purchased a variety of aged tone woods from Lewis Lumber Products (www.lewislp.com) and other various providers in my area. There will be 24 blanks consisting of curly maple, ash, alder, African and Honduran Mahogany, black walnut, and padauk. I have done a fully detailed CAD drawing of my guitar that will instruct the CNC routing machine on what to cut, and it will do it efficiently and accurately!

While the machine demonstrates its cutting abilities, making a large batch of guitar bodies for me, I’ll be there to answer questions and demonstrate the lutherie process. I will also have one of my completed resonator guitars on display for me to play and for others to test drive. I’ll have various hard ware pieces as well as my new line of custom winds form Porter Pickups (www.porterpickups.com). With these pieces I’ll be able to do a “dry-fit” assembly and preview the further building process.

In the mean time I’ll be planning display materials, printing handouts about my business and music, and working away in the shop for the upcoming week. Then its time to fly to the deserts of the southwest. 

Is there anything that you fellow bloggers would like to see at a demo like this? I’m open for suggestions and experiences. Thanks for your support and I can’t wait to show you the guitars as they progress!
