I'm living and learning with this build. Although I started off with the router, everything else I've done since has been by other means. For example, see here that I've trimmed the outside of the pot using my table saw. I LOVE my table saw! If you look closely, you'll see that I've set up an ingenious little guide above the blade that has allowed me to trim the outside by continuously turning the pot round and passing it by the blade. Amazing!
I show you this picture because I think I might have captured the only sunny moment this weekend! Oh yes, and you can see a little closer the mess that has been left behind by my milling. My next challenge was to try and take this even closer.
Here, I've been hard at work with a chisel and despite a blister in the palm of my hand, I've only managed to tackle half of the pot, and even that's not looking very pretty.
This is the pot flipped over. See the thicker rim. I do hope that this is a great idea!
Here's the side of the pot and me realising that I need to trim the depth by about 1 cm.
Parts are still arriving for the build. Here's one that caused great giddiness on G+ earlier this week. I need to learn how to fit it... but isn't it beautiful!
I've finished drafting the final chapter of my comic "The Black Pirate". Here's the first page as a teaser. It's rough, but then you'd be feeling rough after chapter 4! This might be the end my friends!
"Fuke Uke, I won't do what you tell me"
Whilst I have been playing quite a bit of music recently, I'm going to end with some proper music courtesy of Fuck-Uke. If we could only bottle this... we'd have a bottle... of... something... ;-)
Just in case you were wondering... yes, my banjo will have a neck! See here that I've been measuring it out! I'm still thinking of 5 strings... or will I do 4? No... 5!
