Thanks tateharmann !!

You should try to build a guitar ! Unless you want to build a Ukulele because you love ukuleles, I would advice against starting with one. It is not much easier than a guitar. Get a good guitar kit (such as lmii), a good book or two, Robert Obrien or Bogdanovich videos, and 1 year later you will have a very decent guitar.

The only problem, that any amatheur luthier can confirm, is that it is a highly addictive activity. You have been warned ! :D

That looks just excellent. I like the choice of woods.

Thanks Ricardo for the tip!

I do like ukulele and already have one.

What I really want is a baroque guitar so maybe I should start there :)
