    Stratocaster Build - From Scratch

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    While I'm waiting for the parts to arrive for the Tele (delivery is slow during the gift giving season), I decided to get a start on the guitar that I've wanted for a VERY long time. :) I went to Guitarre Plans and downloaded everything I could find on the Strat - .jpg, .pdf, .dwg & .dfx. ...

    The One Stone Challenge

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    Chinese Hand Tool Woodworking

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    I came across these on another forum, or at least a link to one or two of them. Given the discussions in other threads, I have a serious preference for watching professionals do woodworking vs. the kinds of things that we've been talking about lately. Most of the stuff aimed at beginners gives no...

    On Customer Loyalty ... ?

    Thread Starter: Bill Stearns

    Hey All - While some profess to have gained a high degree of customer loyalty, others say there is no such thing! Wondering? - Has anyone yet tried developing a "loyalty building program" for their engraving business? - a "promotional way" of generating (ensuring) greater repeat business?...

    Leg cramp!

    I've experienced these in the past. They can make you want to scream. What worked for me was 800mg Motrin and 100mg Potassium Gluconate with 8oz of water

    Digital versus hard copy

    I like hard copies, and won't buy anything that isn't productivity related where someone else controls the license after I bought it. My wife uses itunes,
