You mean to tell me there is the option of stopping?

I can stop anytime I want to!  I just don't want to.. yeah... that's it...  116 and counting.

How do I stop???.......easy, move somewhere cold, haven't been in my shop for weeks, record cold temps here, and even worse across other parts of the US, my shop has heat, but not well insulated, I may be out till spring if this weather is going to be as cold as predicted.

Yea, the cold slows down the building process. My shed also isn't insulated so it doesn't hold the heat well. This weather is a bit too cold for staining or painting. As long as its in the 30s I can get enough heat to work comfortably sanding a shaping necks or cutting the boxes but definately need warmer weather to get into finishing.

I can do some work inside now. It really is a sickness.

I work inside some during the winter. I live alone so no one complains about the mess.

My lungs combined with arthritis in my knees and hands won't let me work if I wanted to in anything below the 40's even with heat

Yeah, I went down to the basement to work the other day. It was 5 I think outside and way too cold!

not gonna stop till they make me.,.,long live the "stick in a box"...

Don't be a quitter!

So far I have built 6-6string guitars, 1-4string bass guitar, a baritone 3 string PVC git, a 6 string lap steel, 2-4 string acoustic CBG's, a 4 string electric CBG, a 4 string gas can git and a 5 string reso bass.

Now I'm in the middle of building a 6 string DC Tele, a 6 string Bo Diddly git and I need to rebuild 2 tube amps. Whoohoo, it never ends. I'll be building something in the box they put ME in. Haha

That's a damn good idea Paul! Before I get too old to do it I'm going to have to build my own coffin then keep it in storage until needed.

The only question that remains is fretted or fretless? Well... that and will my wife pay to have them dig a hole big enough for a coffin with a 144" scale length.
