     See you in February... Woody


     Today is January 6...and so ends another eating season.  Fortunately, my wife considers this to be cooking season. Having a warm belly is something to be thankful for.  It has been so cold that it's been difficult to keep Woody Strings warm (the shop).

     Woody got a new toy for Christmas​. Now learning to program it. (VCarve)  Any constructive ideas for learning the software would be more than welcome (Woody@WoodyStrings.com). 

     Beginning videos are tedius to watch several times. By spring, Woody should be able to cut a paisley layout with the new machine.

​​ Jan 7    Leavng now to put another log in the stove, then learn some VCarve... building two guitars right now, a Walnut Dread, and a Padauk Dread.


     Woody has volunteered to teach another introductory home-shop guitar building class. Last semester was much fun and very productive.
