Sincereheart Said:

Does that mean we're becoming Amish?  

Oklahoma Howdy to Sincereheart,

You know, I think that the Amish people have many good ideas. They work hard, live simply, and they don't have a lot of the problems of this world. You don't have to worry about what your kids are watching on television if you don't have a TV.   Cheesy  I doubt they are very worried about the gas prices either.

I joked once with my wife about wanting to make things really simple for retirement. I suggested no cars, no telephone, no electricity, and a very small log cabin heated by a fire place. My wife told me to write and let her know how I was doing.   Grin

It sounds like your husband already has a lot of the tools to make a musical instrument. I will find out something for you. I remember hearing my dad talk about it when I was young. I remember him telling me the first and most important step was selecting the right wood for the specific instrument. I also remember that it was a lengthy process with many steps. I'm sure there are quicker ways, but they wanted good sound quality. I'm almost sure there is a curing process first. Remember, they selected their wood from a live tree, and they started over if the wood didn't cure right. I might have a location for my cousin now, and he may even have some of the instruments older family members made. So far, I don't think that he has a telephone. You guessed it - he never married.   Grin

Love In Christ,
Tom

LOL! See? That's what I mean!  Grin We're not worried about gas prices at this point!  Lips Sealed We've been growing fruits and veggies. Fresh eggs. Venison and wild turkey. We have no television reception though we are enjoying watching videos and DVD's as a family. And the less we have that's wordly, the more we enjoy the riches of the Lord's blessings. God is so good!  Cheesy But I do draw the line at the clothing!  Lips Sealed

ROFL! I've got my poor husband so scared because I'm at the point where all that sounds good!  Lips Sealed

Sounds good! I know my husband would actually enjoying doing that with us! Ok, he'd have to! I'm clueless!  Lips Sealed

Oklahoma Howdy to Sincereheart,

I'm still working on the instructions for old fashioned home-made instruments. I was looking for something to watch the other day and stopped on the DIY (Do It Yourself) channel. Believe it or not, they currently have a series on making instruments. I looked on their website diynetwork.com/ , and they do have a listing time for each episode, but they don't have the plans on the site. I watched most of episode #1 on making a guitar. Most of the wood came from the top of a red spruce, and some of the finishing wood was rosewood. Nearly all of the tools were hand tools, and the supplies included heated hyde glue and numerous types of delicate wood clamps.

From what I saw, it might take a month for an absolute expert to make a good guitar. For the normal person, it might take a year or more. I'll keep looking.

Love In Christ,
Tom
