Even though I have retired my web site taking my tutorials off-line on that site many of them remain here on the OLF. You just have to look at back pages in this section, Fixture, Video, and Picture Tutorials and you will find them.

These tutorials were created with you guys (meaning men and women....) in mind and it's my wish to keep them available to everyone here on the OLF.

As such enjoy, be safe, have fun.

Hesh, Thanks for taking the time to make them and now put them all in an easily accessible place.. [:Y:] [:Y:]

They are a valuable resource for all of our community and sure did help me at times to take the mystery out of many building steps. Nicely done.

The website looks great.

Thanks Hesh!

I had been thinking about going to the fret press system and remembered your toot on that. I just printed it off your site.

Have you seen the improvements to the StewMac press? Time for an updated toot?

Just happened over here. Haven't been in a while. Wow, this is way cool. Hesh, your tutorials are the crem de la crem of guitar building instruction. They are clear, concise, more than helpful, always on important and needed topics and always witty and humorous. What could be better? Thanks for putting these up!!

You guys are very welcome!

Danny sorry bro I did not see your post until now. Sadly no plans to update info re: Stew-Mac's updated fret press. The older version that I have is relegated to being a paper weight these days since I no longer fret the boards off the guitars - not that there's anything wrong with that.. :? :)

Thanks everyone - more toots on the way in the future.

I have had your site book-marked for quite some time. They are excellent "toots", with clear and concise information.

Hesh,

Thanks for your toots. I have referred to them many times over the years and continue to do so. They have been an invaluable source for me in learning about lutherie.

You dah man!

I'm new to this forum and starting my first build. Clearly my search skills are lacking. Is there a link somewhere that will take me to the tutorials list so I can bookmark it?
Thanks.
