Another week out the shop: accepting that guitar building is on hold for now, and finding things to keep me busy in the mean time.
A week out the shop: in which I call upon better informed friends to educate me on bandsaws and oscilloscopes.
To all the wonderful makers out there trying to help in the current crisis, please be careful lest you get a magnet stuck up your nose:
Some notes on how I've been using my time stuck inside to revisit photos from previous trips and use them to up my photo editing game:
A week mostly not in the shop: getting set back up ready to build, pondering bandsaws, and pondering what to do during lockdown.
Getting back into photography by changing how I can take pictures:

A week getting back in the shop: setting up my new workbench in my new workshop, and some learnings from an issue found on an early build.
I have a lot of fecebook contacts who are working musicians and they are losing gigs left and right.
I also have a lot of contacts who depend on income from art/maker fairs who are having important gigs canceled out from under them.
If shows/events you've been planning on attending have been cancelled, please consider going right to the artists' Etsy/Bandcamp pages and spending that money there.
