There are a thousand ways this can go wrong

Steve Posted December 13, 2013
With lots of little pieces to be made, then assembled, potentially lost or broken, I was nervous about this kit from the time I first opened it until I assembled it for the last time. But the results were worth it. Made the first one as a gift for my granddaughter's guitar teacher. Now I'm working on one for her. Beautiful when finished but be patient and very careful. Plan on spending more time than you expected.

I  had a problem with the epoxy going soft on me but during the sanding process before I put on a CA glue finish. I suspect the epoxy softened from the heat of sanding even though I sanded lightly and didn't feel hot to the touch. Next time, I will fill the hole with CA glue instead of epoxy.

Man this was fun. It was quite challenging to get all the pieces in. I did feel it necessary to drill out the holes in the fretboard to allow the silver wire to go all the way in. I didn't put in the paper for the frets but the fretboard still looks good. Unlike one of the other reviewers, I didn't have any trouble with interactions between CA and epoxy. The biggest problem was finding really clear epoxy. I finally found a 5 minute epoxy double tube from a home center. I used 2 fillings, one to mostly fill the hole, and the second to get the level a bit above the wood so that there wouldn't be a dent. And there are a couple of small bubbles. Overall, it's a fun pen to put together, it looks great, and it'll be a great gift.
