His photo also came with this lovely testimonial, thanks David!
Many months ago, you folks helped me in my search for some top-of-the-line yellow cedar for a carving project. You found a log on North Vancouver Island. It was milled shipped to you, and you alerted me to its arrival. I came, selected some pristine timber and went away poorer but happy! The project was a wedding present for my son and now daughter-in-law. You asked if you could have a photo of the results, which delighted all concerned. Many thanks again to all of you for your fine service and knowledge.
Guitar & Douglas-fir Bar
Patrick Poulin made the beautiful guitar, it was a hobby project and will be his first and last guitar. Come on Patrick! We know talent when we see it!
Kevin Morrin made the bar top and had this to say about his West Wind experience:
I found a great slab of fir in your loft this fall, and you help plane and cut the mitres. It all came together really well and I’m really happy with how the bar top ended up looking. Thanks for the extra time spend addressing some issues with the measurements. On the hunt for another project now!
Great Kevin, you know where to find us!
We shared Eric Letham‘s completed project last issue, this month we get a peak at his latest work-in-progress.
Our customer Matt Dolmage was busy over the holidays with creating more beautiful guitars and speakers.
