So, Vanna White has shifted into yarn design? haha. Your hats always get rave reviews - I love the (much bigger) one you made for my (much bigger) head. Always linked together with an extra dose of love! - A.C.
Well, it just says she choosesthe yarn. And she chose yours too! Maybe one day I’ll go beyond just making custom orders!
Ack! Safety first next time! Must not stab hand if want to continue playing guitar! ;o) - a.c.
The D in DIY is for danger! Perhaps not the best approach, however…
At Wednesday’s worship practice, I asked the guys why my guitar went out of tune sharp instead of flat. I mean, usually strings stretch and relax and go flat. I was distressed when they told me that my neck was probably pulling. Not good!! Turns out it can be helped, with a guitar humidifier. I did a lot of Googlery, checked out some blogs and YouTube vids, and decided to make my own, based on techniques common to most of the tutorials I found.
Cellulose sponges, dollar store find
Plastic containers, small enough to fit in your guitar case, with tight fitting lids, also dollar store
Sorry for the lack of step-by-step pics, but it’s pretty straightforward. Open the sponges.
Trim them to match your container:
CAREFULLY cut a few holes in the lid of your container. I used the end of a knife to drill holes in one, and when the pink one cracked (which is when I stabbed my hand), I kind of went with it:
Soak your sponges, squeeze them out well, make sure they aren’t going to drip, and pop them in your container:
Here’s how they fit in my Takamine’s generic case, and my Ovation’s custom case:
I looked into the sound hole vs the kind that go up by the neck, and since I’d be pretty limited for sound hole types for the Ovation, I opted for this one. And from what I found, most people just had this kind. I spent $1.50 each, and I got to stab myself in the hand in the process!!
You are so groovy! Reminds me of space age dominoes or interlocking puzzle pieces. Or a silver lava lamp. - a.c.
Oooh, I like the lava lamp imagery. Now, if I could only get them to move like that!
I KNEW you'd come up with an awesome interpretation of this intricate tradition! Christos Voskress! - a.c.
Vin Voistynuu Voskress!! Thank you!! They received glowing reviews at church this morning. I’m thinking of a spring theme next… but what?
