My neighbor is working on his doctorate at NC State University in industrial education. He asked me to be a guest lecturer to a 100-level industrial education class on the processes of guitar making. The processes I discussed included; the design plan, joinery, dimensioning, bending, routering, inlay, and finishing. I prepared a PowerPoint presentation and gave a lecture to two classes yesterday. I brought a finished guitar, a braced top, and a set of plans. There were a lot of photos. The lectures were well received and I had a great time. No pictures of me lecturing, but here's a shot of shop time after the lecture...
