Well gentlemen . It would appear after checking with Hibdon that Shady Jacks having a shindig on the 28th . So it would appear that our best choice is the 21st of Sept. 2019 for our annual gathering . We have several demos already in the works. Chris A Ensor will be showing us several of his new products and demonstrating their usage. I will add more shortly . If we have talked about you doing a demo this yr mention it in the comments .

GATEWAY AREA LUTHIERS SHOW SEPTEMBER 21 2019 . HIBDON HARDWOOD ST.LOUIS MO.

Ha! It's not like that at all. We can stop any time we want. I mean, sure, I sold my mom's tv to buy fretwire once but how long are we going to keep bringing that up? :)

Just less than 6 weeks to show time !! We have a dulcimer builder coming as well this year . Several demos on " How To" and great conversations. Something new this year , we are asking builders to bring their first ever attempt at building . It will be enjoyable to see how far everyone has progressed . Looking forward to see everyone !!

Just a friendly bump for those who want to come but may have forgotten.

I just got 3 more registrations this weekend so I'm posting while I'm thinking about it.

Unfortunately, no. The "Sonny Do" list just grew exponentially, Mom sold the ranch (at least she hasn't "bought the farm") and I have a major move to help with. You guys have fun and we'll see you next year.

Gateway Area Luthiers Show at Hibdon Hardwood Sat 21st St Loius Mo. 9:00 to 4:00
Well gentlemen , it is 6 days away from show time . We have a good group coming and i am looking forward to seeing everyone . DONT FORGET YOUR FIRST BUILD ! Its going to be nice to see all the progress that people have made. Chris A Ensor is going to be highlighting his jigs. I believe Donald Ickes had a neck carve planned. I have a new idea for bracing that most have seen i will discuss. I also have a finished guitar that has the application. Joe Mendel may be discussing the CNC process he is using . We have shopping time as well and i am sure Hibdon will be giving the same discount as always . We will also spend the last 1-1/2 hrs sitting in a group and discussing ideas or subjects that we need help with or are curious about. If you have a good group discussion idea please mention it . As always we will have lunch available. Its not to late to invite a friend . Looking forward to seeing everyone !
