It has been a great week! This year’s strumfactory.com run has been an exercise in shear will. We have basically done the whole instrument run in a shed that measures 8’ by 12’. Working together, my Sister and I have developed jigs, fabricated temporary work surfaces and changed our schedules to work around the construction happening in her garage. It has been fun , frustrating and inspiring. I am in Saint Pete searching for a building that will be the strumfactory.com headquarters and I am thinking big , when really I should be thinking smart. This endeavor in small space working has been educational. I have also loved seeing Laura’s skill set expand exponentially. She can make the whole instrument independently and is ready to help me teach when the time avails itself. Today while I worked on quality control she very carefully flattened, and polished frets.
