Things are humming at strumfactory.com we are setting up jigs and doing a test run of 5. The shop extension is not quite done so I built a temporary bench outside to glue up on. It is working great!
Time is speeding by and we are busy at work here at Strumfactory.com
Last week we started organizing are prepared parts for a run of instruments. we have so many ideas and so little time. I have been experimenting with instruments made from game boards. It is fun and challenging. here are 2 finished tenor guitars from a run of 3.
We are shaping the necks for our new run of dulcimer guitars. When this step is done we will start glueing necks to bodies.
Today we cut necks and made some templates. We are tweaking our design and streamlining our production.
The sides are in the mold and we have to wait 4 days and then transfer parts to the drying rack. We are perfecting the design and cutting out parts, and sometimes just messing around with the new electric guitar. Laura is getting really good!
Today we set up the steamer and starting bending the curved sides of the Strumpet ( our dulcimer Guitar)
Laura built an awesome steam box. My friend Brian CNC’d 4 sets of mold patterns for us. So far so good!
It has been awhile since our last post. I am in the new house and preparing the new shop for production.
Today My Sister Laura and I unpacked templates and prepped stock for a run of Strumpets. We have been discussing some new instrument designs and a new web site. Lots has been happening but nothing could be done until both our shops were for the work to begin.
