Bloggaday 102 – ETS, My Battle with Excessive Time Syndrome
I kind of dedicated myself to this being today’s Bloggaday on twitter a couple of days ago. I took a picture of something I was working on Tuesday and teased that I would type about it Thursday, so here it is.
As the title suggests, I’ve got way too much time on my hands. The result of too much time? You make a friggin guitar out of cardboard.
Here is what I have so far.
First, I had to cut the body out. I used the backs off of a couple of drawing pads that I have from an art class a few semesters ago.
I also cut out the neck from same boards as well as all of the little pieces.
The dials are pre-bought wood (from Micahels). I did have to drill a hole in one though.
To give the body the depth, I cut out a strip from a cardboard box
I’ll post another one up when I actually get it together and go into some more detail. I can tell you, I’m going to have some problems with the headstock or whatever you call it.
