Good stuff.

I've never heard the thing about cleaning up the shop before working from anyone else, but that's generally what I do.  Make a bunch of sawdust then take a break or impatiently start playing the guitar.  Clean up at the start of the next session.

That's how I do it too. Somehow, it makes it easier to jump right in when there's already sawdust all over the place.

so rad...another covert!

So, is anybody gonna contact Ed Helms for pics of his builds?

I know I'd like a peek. He sounds pretty proud of them. You just KNOW they're still on his phone.

FACT:  Dwight Schrute has built twice as many guitars as Ed Helms.

FACT:  Dwight Schrute once built a set of bagpipes out of beets.

FACT:  More cigar box guitarists are killed by bears than any other animal.

Lies, damn lies and statistics!
FACT: Dwight Schrute built more than Andrew Bernard. :P

Hmmmm. Bear foot?

Very cool, too bad they did not print pics of them. He have FB page or something?
