Plodding Along

What with near to and 40+ degrees it’s been way too hot to spend time in the shed, but I’ve caught up a bit now it’s cooled down. The V-Star Embossed is ready for final assembly, the neck is black with a transparent black fretboard and ebony fret markers, you can see the internal pup assembly in the photo. This’ll be the first and last tin I use unless I can find a thicker one as this one was just that tad too thin.

Hobbies & More

Finally found summut that sorta interest’s me hobby wise and I should be able to make some money off it too πŸ™‚
I bought myself a CNC machine, a 6040 thing off eBay for a little over a grand, plus a kit version that’s got a 4′ x 6′ bed and gantry so once I’ve got the hang of it I’ll transfer the bits across to the kit and have a monster πŸ™‚ I also bought a table router and a shedloada router bits and CNC bits – now all I gotta do is wait for it all to arrive. I’ve been mucking about with Aspire 3.5 a 3D CNC package and the more I play with it the more I realise me and wood may not mix, BUT I’m determined to sort it and have a real hobby.
The pic below is something I quickly knocked up in Aspire and I’m well chuffed and Aspire says it won’t take that long to machine out so digits crossed the CNC machine is as good as some people on the interweb have claimed.

Apart from the above I’ve not been doing much ‘cept mucking about with other designs and hiding from the shitty weather – although today it’s been pissin’ down so I’m a happy chappy, it tell’s me that Winter is on its way πŸ™‚


Playing silly buggers again

Seeing as boredom is setting in, I decided to sod about with Poser and came up with this image. It’s pretty basic but makes a good wallpaper πŸ˜›

As You Can See

I’ve changed the theme AGAIN πŸ™‚ one day I’ll leave it alone but I doubt that’ll be any time soon jejeje


In Case You Haven’t Noticed!

Been mucking about with the appearance of the site, no doubt it’ll probably change “again” – who knows. Right now I’m off to sort out the workshop so I can actually find stuff I need. Actually sort out is wrong – more like clean the bloody tip up πŸ™‚


Site mods

Seeing as I don’t stick me ‘ead in ‘ere as often as I should, I’ve scrapped the guestbook and replaced it with a contact form – at least I’ll see who’s trying to contact me straight off. So if you’ve sent me a message on the guestbook, feel free to drop me a note.

Also added a few more sarcy pics to the gallery, just can’t help meself πŸ™‚
