life is very busy in school at the minute.

open night is coming up and we've decided to go all mechanisms in the Technology & design dept.

firast a clatterpillar and "Bath time at granny's"

the clatterpillar needs painted, and the faces on the bathtime "victims" need re-done as the sad mouths look more like moustaches.

118 118 anyone?

dunno why but the embedding isn't working for these....... works fine with preview.... ah well, follow the links to see......

as far as guitarry stuff is concerned, the cutaway mando is in the post, I have to arrange a meet up with the OM's new owner for a handover, and the abalone for the rosette on the jumbo is mislaid in the post mid atlantic.

Cutaway mando & OM pretty much done.

just a little tweek needed on the set-up.

I recorded a little piece on them today

straight from the piezos to the PCs soundcard, the software is audacity, no FX, no eq and no quality in the playing!! My excuse is that my finger is still sore from when I took the end off it with a table saw a while back.......

still, here's Lolo's lulabye, a tune I wrote for my daughter.
