tricked you with that dog cover pic... I'm just talking about nerd stuff again... very happy with the powder coating for these chair parts. #jrfs #losgatoschair #powdercoating

Ez Lok u r dum. 😡 Why must i painstakingly weld 1/32" of steel to each side of your tool to make it function properly? #ezlok #ezlokFU

Trickiest part of this chair- compound angled notches in the curved back of the seat. Like a wedge, a little bit of material makes a big difference in fit. Trying to get them pretty snug even though the legs vary a bit. #jrfs #losgatoschair #baylaurel

Turned 14" Claro platter to warm the new home of one of our favorite couples. Congrats @annastea_honesty and @michaeldtubbs ! #jrfs

The only thing worse than having to grind welds all day is to have these show up and not be able to play with them. Roasted maple/Rosewood, Maple/Maple. Also, these pre-glued maple neck blanks are so cheap, it hardly makes sense to mill my own unless I'm going for something really unusual. #warmoth #guitarmaking #jrfs

One last metal fabricator complaint for your daily schadenfreude. I was promised beautiful, consistent, TIG-stacked dimes. If I wanted messy MIG squirts, I could've done that myself. So, it's lots of filling, grinding, filing, shaping, etc. The two parts on the left and right are only 75% done. I thought that Lab-Metal might be my savior, but all the powder-coaters I went to shut that down. Thankfully, the powder coating will have a nice dark, satin, slightly sparkly texture. ... The thing that is most frustrating about venturing into an unfamiliar medium is knowing what acceptable standards are- understanding the limitations of the material, design, etc.... knowing which elements can be analogous to woodworking and which can't be compared. I definitely have a few tweaks planned for the next batch that should eliminate these kinds of variables. #jrfs #losgatoschair
