    Rockman,

    What circuit is that? I started to build a custom 5E3 but ran out of patience trying to solder all those itty bitty wires, lol.

    These days I play through a pair of Super Champ X2s which give me close to the classic sound, but really want a true all tube tweed circuit one of these days.

    Your work looks awesome!

    Damn I bet that is a blast to play through, the drive of the JCM and the warmth of the 6V6 instead of the crisp sound of the EL34s, nice!

    Drop a clip on here if you have a chance, would love to hear it.

    It's a bit different animal than the 2204 with EL34's for sure. Not so warm as you might think, but still LAF.
    Also, I'm a better builder than I am a player... just a hack to be perfectly honest with you. But, I'll see if I can find one. I made a few clips some years back, low quality and guitar only. If I run across them, I'll throw one up.

    I am not surprised at everybody's fantastic projects shown here.
    With all the sweet bike builds on CC it stands to reason that a thread showcasing members non-motorcycle builds would be crazy good.
    Thanks for pics all.

    I made a bed. The frame, headboard and footboard anyway. The frame is treated with gun bluing and the head and foot boards are 1/8 sheet rusted with vinegar and then clearcoated.

    And a stand for my TV and stereo stuff. the frame is 1 1/2in x 1/8in wall square tube, gun blued and the shelves are red oak veneer plywood inset flush with the top of the frame.

    I didn't make it, but if you're interested the Stereo is a Yamaha CR1020 receiver with a Pioneer PL41 full manual belt drive turntable and Realistic Nova 6 speakers.

    On New Year's Day I found some dead trees standing in the bush, cut them down, took all the limbs off, cut them to 18" pieces, loaded them in my truck, unloaded and chopped them all, then burned them.

    Picture of one of the many fabricated houses I framed with my vintage 1978 Lull hi-lift rough terrain forklift..best helper I ever had..never calls in sick! and lifts 32 feet high,gas Oliver 6 cylinder with mechanical brakes ,I made the rotating/swivel 14x4 foot work "basket" that slips on the forks.It has a castor wheel on each front corner that allows it to rotate square to the wall regardless of the machine angle when I drive forward.

    Luky - was that a set of shelves? Do you do junk art?
    ...or did you just have a bad spell?

    kmanator - that is sweet! Sure would have made my life easier. (builder also)
    That's still a tough go to do it alone even with the machine.
    I built my house alone EXCEPT for the frame raising and rafters.
    It weighs alot. I know because I carried/lifted every piece.

    LUKY- That was what I intended it to be.
    I do not know if it is art or not. I will let the art historians and gallery owners decide. Each piece of metal was cleaned and painted BEFORE assembly.
    I was actually having a GOOD spell. The sculpture was sold.
    I have other sculptures for sale.
