More progress even though caused by delays . I have recently mastered the art of laying a floor with large Travertine tiles and I am most of the way through laying a solid oak floor with interlocking edges. Not as easy as it sounded to me as every groove needed planing to make them fit. So a wee bit tiring at the end of the day but enjoying using handsaws rather than a bandsaw . . Meanwhile back at the guitar ----the ebony and Rocklite ebonar bindings have been stuck to the sides of the guitar with masking tape. So we can draw some new information from that . The real ebony ,which was carefully heated and bent to shape ,still wants to be a tree rather than a guitar and is fighting back to release itself. On the other hand the Rocklite is as good as gold and shows no sign of rebellion . So if you have any interruptions half way through the binding job Rocklite " is your only man ". A genuine team player that wants to do it`s best The only annoyance is getting used to B&Q ( UK hardware store ,mes amis ) shutting near me . It does help to have a shop selling basic stuff like plywood nearby . I need that to attach the elastic .
