I take it you refin guitars for a hobby?

No, but I do work wood and metal. I'm currently building a new chest for my wood carving tools, for example. I could show some examples of my carving, once I learn to take decent pictures.

RE: Historical Weapons
Since we’ve been talking a bit about melee weapons the Lakota Indians had this horrific contraption

I’d piss my pants seeing someone coming at me with this thing.

Remember this scene from Last of the Mohicans?

I could have some serious fun with one of those puppies...

I love trebuchets. This is what my dad wanted to do to his brand new Fiat (Fix It Again Tony) bought back in the 1980's.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Historical Weapons
Dude I was just going to look for video of those guys who build modern trebuchets. There's a whole competition for them, now, and a TV show about it.

My idea was to go buy some TV's at garage sales -- there's a ton of CRT types - and rig up a power cord/feed cable -that plays out when launched - and have the TV's playing different crap, when launching -- and getting it video recorded -- as they fly through the air, playing...

Performance art, sorta thing...

Yeah, you should start a thread about that.

I was just joking, lots of guys on the guitar forums will tell you "aw, that'll buff out" when a new owner is melting down after the guitar got its first scratch. Smile

Not trying to put down your choice here, but that thing looks like it was made from a piece of plywood. This one on the other hand is a work of art right down to the wampum bead strap.
