You don't have to FINISH the instrument by the end of the month eek

You just have to sign up for the challenge by then.
That is my understanding anyways.

I don't know if I can make it by the end of this month but I'm working on one that fits the criteria. I have parts coming that probably wouldn't even be here by then. Total cost for me right now though is just the parts, some switches to be exact. I guess I did buy the fretwire, but I've had it laying around for a while. Everything else was free.

Oh okay. Awesome then.

Is it okay if I started it before I knew about the challenge? Might have been just before January.

I had no idea this would be such a busy spring for me. I must withdraw.

Thank you,

Sadly, I have to drop out as well. My cabinetry business has been busier than I thought, and the rest of the year is looking to be the same. :D Unfortunately, that leaves any lutherie an the back burner. :(
I'm looking forward to seeing and hear all the great entries, so good luck to all!!

Alex

I'm out as well. I'm still in the middle of building a small spray booth in the corner of my shop. Gotta get that done.

My mandolin is done. Had hopes of recording my friend playing it last week but I had to work late and it never happened. I'll try to get something recorded this week. I do not expect my work to be good enough to win the competition and I don't have a bandsaw, so don't need the prize. However, the instrument is done, which makes me happy.

I'm out as well. I got as far as resawing my firewood log, then got side tracked by my main guitar project I'm working on.

Which I must say is now moving right along. So progress was made, just not on the challenge. idunno

I'm going to bow out also. I've been sitting at home with a pinched nerve in my back, can't really do much of anything at the moment. I'll be up for the next one.
Thanks

Wudwerker -

can you update the list of participants ?

I am hoping I can finish mine - but I am still trying - I only have 3 days left to work on it - Thursday Friday, then a vacation and then the 31st - still have to make a bridge and a nut and saddle. Not sure when i will finish it - it might be submitted in the white....

as everyone else it has been a busy spring with other work.

Had a bit of a catastrophe with my harp ukulele, but I think I've got it fixed up, so I'm not out of the game yet.
