Easing back into it

I’ve been away from my shop for a while, but took some time to sharpen a few plans, break out my gouges and start working on a project I began a long time ago, an archtop guitar.  Just some  top shaping, first using the gouge to get the general shape, then using two small planes to smooth the gouge marks out.  I will hopefully continue refining this top before I attempt the more challenging part–bending the sides and building the acoustic body.

52Rolls, week 6, 17th Century Carving

Originally posted on Joe's Film Photography Adventure:

Since this same roll thematically has two major parts, night time shots in and around the center of my hometown, and the woodworking class I took learning 17th Century-style Carving, I thought it best to split the two up.  Here are the shots of other students and our instructor that I did not include in the 52Rolls.net posting.  I am very impressed with this film and was also surprised I got 38 shots out of a roll of 36.

17th Century Carving, samples

One of the great things about this class was all the samples Peter Follansbee brought with him. He encouraged all of us to take as many photos as we wanted, so…I obliged. I used my Ashahi SMC macro on some, my Meyer-Optik Gorliz Pentacon wide-angle on others, all taken with my Pentax K-5 IIs DSLR.
