Hey!

It's been a few years OSG. Hope everyone is doing well! Missed you guys.

I've had more than a few things on my workbench in the last few years, but here's the most recent guitars to soon be finished. I'm sure I'll make an update thread here soon. If you're on instagram, you can also check my workbench out @widdershins_guitars now as well.
Nice stuff Empryean! I'm really digging that black one too. I see the Emtech 6000 in that photo. How do you like it as a finish? I'm doing more and more waterbased stuff lately too. I've been trying a lot of different brands to find the one I like the best.

It's fantastic, highly recommended.

If you're spraying you're good to go, if you are brushing it on get yourself a high quality fine synthetic brush (which is what I did). Very forgiving, easy buffing compared to finishes I've used before. Feels very nitro-like.

I took the same route and went more waterbased for the environment and my own brain cells. :D The emtech has been the best yet for me in terms of overall time, looks and feel.
No, I am not selling the Harmony Rocket.

Beautiful axe. It may not be offset but at least it isn't symmetrical. That works for me. :w00t:

Well, then. 3 nice xxx-masters! Looking good, there. I particularly like the Telemaster.

Jake, that looks really good. Nice work. Decent boots, too.

Not a project or anything I'm working on, but a question to any fellow workworkers. I've been looking for a very thin kerf blade for my table saw (and maybe for my miter saw as well) and don't know where to go to look for any. The thinnest kerf blades I've found locally (hardware stores, my usual go-to) are +/- 1/8". That's fine for normal usage, but I've watched a few videos of guys making things that have extra thin kerf saw blades, and I can't find any. I've never bought saw blades online either. Any recommendations for where or what brands are great would be hot ;D

I haven't personally bought any thin kerf blades, but I know that Woodcraft and Rockler carry some and they likely have a physical stores near you if you aren't comfortable buying online. I've had good experiences purchasing from their websites though.

Thanks PearDream! Any brand recommendations? I love Bosch's stuff, but I don't think they make one. I've heard good things about Freud blades and CMT too.

Sorry, I don't have any particular recommendations to give. Saw blades are kind of like guitar strings in a way: any of them will work and for every person that loves a brand, there's another that hates it.
