Melina - Joint Day


Have you ever prepared a joint perfectly only to find it completely unmatching the next day when you wanted to glue it? Well, cutting the c-bout notches out before doing the joint will help the wood to release most of the tensions and probably prevent that kind of undesirable effect!

This is the culmination of Melina's work at Alf Studios.

Melina - Peaceful Moment





I had a beautiful experience doing the finishing work on my Prince Doria top on Gregg’s bench (shhhhh, don’t tell). He wasn’t there and I took advantage; it was a beautiful day, the light came into the huge window just perfectly, and the streets were quiet...just a squirrel walking by. I felt confident and happy about what I was doing. So much about having the right working conditions. Light, bench and atmosphere!
