My talented daughter Erin has become a potter and is turning out some lovely work, Here she is unloading the kiln
and showing her mother and son the results
But she lacked a stamp to sign her pottery creations- and so I determined to make her one
I took from my wood storage a piece of boxwood cut from an old hedge in 1985. Boxwood is the hardest wood that I know of, I turned this on my lathe,
Cut a "cramp"to hold it in the vise and sketched out her E design
then with tiny chisels and files the carving began
And voila, two stamps of different sizes, E for Erin. signatures for her pottery pieces.
But back to Luthery- I wanted to get the bridge onto Diann's tenor.
Glued and clamped- it will be singing soon
