  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    Okay...well...I haven't actually started yet, but here's a financial update:

    I've still got old gear selling, and I've already got $$$ socked away in Paypal, so I'm on solid footing. I'm trying to strike a balance between the right tools, the required tools, and the right woods to start with. Of course, I keep stepping back and checking myself. I haven't bought anything yet (tools, wood), as I want to make sure I'm doing it right, and because I'm still waiting for some good used items to pop up. Once I've got a "workshop" set up and make my first cuts (hopefully on wood, not on fingers :smug: ) I'll let you know...thanks for all of your help!
