• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Oh the Itch! The freakin' Itch

Once again the electron gods have left a package on my porch.

I got so dang excited, I forgot to take pictures of it.

Pine, cherry, maple, and walnut.

Smells good, really good.

Rescued the transformers from a shelter.

They were nasty dirty and had unbelievably bad rattle can paint.

All better now.

I'll make new bolts tomorrow.

This is going to totally suck and be a major embarrassment to you. Just finish it and ship it to me for disposal. I'm here for you man!

The rest of the small parts and tubes arrived today.

Mrs. Gator didn't eat me.

And I put on another coat of finish.

Well...

Life has gotten the better of me in the last few days.

One more coat of finish, and no picture.

For those of you who don't do words well, I promise pictures by Saturday night.

I'm CoyotesGator, and I approve this message.

Thank You!

The caps are Mallory 150's.

Sometimes they're yellow, other times they are white.

All of the six-thousand holes are drilled.

Sockets, pots, jacks, etc. mounted.

Faceplate cut, painted, dry, and installed.

A quick mockup for y'all.

Please excuse the mess in the laboratory.

Alright Uncle ren.

I've told you over and over. There are only TWO legitimate uses for toothpaste.

Polishing your jewelry and your pearly whites.

Or is that one? Is that the same?

uh oh, I don't feel good now.

:spabout
