Lessons in wood

May 3rd, 2015

So today I learned a really good lesson in wood working. I recently purchased a carver banjo kit and decided to make some new bridges for it. A walnut one for late night and a pine wood one for letting her ring.

I got about 90% thru before I realized the wood grain was vertical instead of horizontal like all my other bridges. I realized this was a rather big oversight onmy part because all wooden stuff in my house has the grains going in whatever direction is the longest.

So I said fuck it, janky bridge still worka good so I go thru and sand it a bunch get it nice and smooth. I applied some wax to give it a lil pop and as I was wiping wax off I snapped that fucker in two 🙁

So yeah, going to start that over tommorrow.
