Ive sold most of my work as well, and have some things ive made in a couple of galleries and Ive been asked to do some turning work for a furniture maker in the area. Im planning on making furniture for a living and them doing turning as a side line and i'd also like to make guitars because i really enjoyed making this one.


yea well over here in WA there is not a cry out for furniture makers so i gave that up along time ago lol

i can get pics of one dining table and my hall table and some other stuff

Its a bit like that here, theres about 15 in my area but they're all small firms with only one or two people so theres no chance of an apprenticeship with them, but i've been to see them all and get my name around and im getting a bit of turning work off of some of them so theres hope yet.

Cool, i'd really like to see them.

Ill post some pics of some of my turning if your interested in seeing it.

I no its been a while since this thread had a reply but I finally completely finished the bass, the finish is 5 coats of antique varnish, it really bought the colors of the wood well and I am very happy with it :twisted:

Pics dont really do it justice

Looks great.
Now a dragon head cannon stock?
Or if you were maybe selling dragon bass blanks(?), I'm sure I could figure something out! 8)

I'm sure it doesn't...that's some great detail there and an awesome job overall.

Have you tried one of theseyet. They are just about to replace bass amps on the stage and studio...and they are awesome.

Too "alien" like for me, I prefer the more baroque style, eye of the beholder I guess ;)

The one you posted a pic of is the nicest looking imo, but I couldn't really post that because you already did lol.

I was thinking, I might make a breach loaded, over under piston gun (ooooh my first ever piston... scary) with an airsoft barrel, and then carve myself up a nice curvy stock, in a similar style to the ones in your link, then run the pilot down to where the trigger would be. Or after the success of my last valveless gun, I might have a go at an making it valveless again instead of building a piston. Can you link me to your valveless design where the projectile is pushed forward by a bolt allowing air to get behind it. I would like to have another look at it and maybe give it a go if thats cool with you, as its your design.
