This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

i have  a PC rebuilt and just needing to transfer the HDD from the old one. a 3W amp kit with 2 speakers waiting for a preamp to build into a cigar box. a 20W  amp module power supply and a RP50 board to rebuild a Marathon amp that has a dead amp board. my 600mm scale length CBG almost finished waiting on some ebay stuff from china to finish the induction pickup. and the start of a Ukulele. 

Got lots of backed up projects. 6 guitars and 2 tube amps. Several Ideas brewing.

3 months ago, the radiator overflow reservoir sprung a leak on my 2003 Ford Ranger. It turned out to be a dealership item only. Decided against a salvage yard since a plastic item at 14 years of age would be a bad purchase. Advance Auto and Autozone had a universal metal replacement part for 75 to 130 dollars. So I went to my local hardware store and purchased 30 dollars worth of PVC plumbing materials and glued them together to make my own replacement part. It works great and hasn't deformed from heat or exposure to Antifreeze.

Nice work.

This thing is still working fine without any leaks. I'm calling this a success.

I am making a SG CBG named what else? SGI, SG inspired. More like a junior though, will only have 1 tone and volume, a snake oil pickup, and using a hardtail bridge.

Lonman, did you finish this one?

Nice work Timothy and Lonman.

Keep posting guy's, anything your doing might help someone else get an idea or help them finish a project.

Today I built a fret jig.  I couldn't be happier! It was a nice experiment working with the leftover wood pieces I'm using on my first cbg.  It cuts perfectly!!! I used a teak oil to see how the cherry and the poplar came out. The jig is made to where the base is sturdy and can be clamped down to a table for more stability. I love this thing! I'm only on my first cbg...who knows how many I'll build....but it was fun making it.  This makes fretting a no-brainer!

That's awesome. I need to make one of my own.

Thanks. This picture is so huge and doesn't show the whole jig. Any idea how to make the pic smaller and zoomed out?

Maybe edit the pic size on your computer, save a copy and repost.

18 maple necks with scarf joints cut glued and headstocks thinned and on the other bench I have 32 1/4 purple heart wood fretboards. They will have my customary 24 frets with a 25" scale brass fret markers and 4 string setup. Once I get them all to the shaping stage my arms will get a workout.
