After building my first guitar when I took the guitar-making class at Tombalek Workshop, I became interested in woodworking. I've since built two more guitars (paying to use the workshop), but since we started working from home early last year, I've started woodworking (primarily with hand tools) in part of small room in our flat. That room has my work-from-home space in one corner, a few storage shelves against three of the walls, and our cat's litter tray in another corner. The middle of the (small) room, with a low bench, is my occasional workshop.

The guitar I plan to build will be a #usewhatyouvegot build, which in my case means using the workspace I have at home using primarily hand tools (I have to keep the noise level low). Thankfully, I have the timber, pickups, hardware etc that I'll need, so I won't have to (nor am I able to) "do a Bogdan".

As it stands right now, I'm looking at a neck through guitar with a smaller than typical body with a carved top and back. Plans can change during the build.
