New article about buying wood

Today I have posted a new article on buying wood for building guitars.  This is based on my experience of trying to find nice wood, and discovering that it’s not particularly easy to find.  The article describes my progress so far, and includes some tips on where to look for wood.

I’ve managed to acquire a small stock of attractive woods, enough for about half a dozen guitars, which should keep me busy for a year or two!

Site admin

Today I have decided to disable subscriber registration on this site, and I have deleted all existing subscribers.  I believe that the vast majority of the nearly 2,000 subscribers were robots, and there has been no meaningful interaction on the site (e.g. genuine comments on articles), so I don’t see any need to allow subscription.

I apologise to any genuine subscribers.  The site will continue, primarily with documentation of my future guitar builds, so come back and check from time to time, or take a look at my YouTube channel.

Thanks for your understanding!
