Rack 'em up.
Yesterday morning I awoke to a chipper Melissa holding a large box. As it turns out, it was an early birthday present. Melissa bought me a shiny new guitar. It was an awesome gift since I've never really had a new guitar. It's strange since I've been playing the guitar for probably 16 or 17 years and I've only owned hand-me-down guitars. Just never decided to make the investment I guess. Anyway, since I now have two guitars at my apartment, Melissa suggested I make two guitar racks and hang them above my desk (there has been a daunting blank wall space there since we moved in). And so, yesterday I made one just to see what it would look like. I think it turned out pretty swell. It's made out of poplar and walnut with black oak pegs. I covered it all with a mineral oil based finish.
