Great craftsmanship, Chief...as always. Each one unique, not just in this post, but from pretty much all the other posts I've seen of your work. Do your customers typically collaborate with you on a design for a pieces such as these...or do many of them just give you creative license to do as you please after having seen some of your past work, resting easy that they will be pleased with the final product?

Your dyeing skills, especially on the lighter tan tones, is positively covetous, sir. Feel free to share your methods, if so inclined.

Thanks for the nice comments, most do collaborate, they have an idea of something they want, however, from time-to-time someone will just say do whatever you want with it.

They are all sweet!

My favorite one is the one under the harmonica's.

Nice mix of Oak, Sheridan and music.

Plus the new style hardware with the traditional hardware.

Great looking work as always, Chief!   I've gotta say, I especially like that last one - Great use of a veiner and swivel knife for a really different, simple, and good looking pattern!   Who'da thunkit!  The other designs look great too, but it's nice to see what can be done with minimal tools too.

That one belongs to Touring dobro player and the emblem is a trademark of Tut Taylor's that he has permission to use.  Studio-N made the embossing plate for the dobroholic emblem.  He does a great job on embossing stamps if you need any custom.

Thanks, I use that technique on belts and it was much more popular during bygone days, not as much call for it anymore, really easy to do after you lay it out.
