Staining the Bass of Spades

Jesse has named it The Bass of Spades. We gave a second coat of stain to the headstock and only coat was needed for the body. The neck/fretboard got boiled linseed oil.

The twine on the body unspun itself and it dropped to the floor. Retied it

Building a bass, 1

Jesse is building an electric bass guitar from a kit we bought from Reverb. We need to sand and finish the neck and body. Then we solder the electronics together. The results will be gratifying.

To focus on using supplies we have, we decided to use a darker teak stain for the body and headstock. The fretboard we will treat with linseed oil.

DnD meetings suspended…

Given the Whatcom County health recommendations to avoid groups of 10 or more, and the general minimization of activities at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, our D&D group meetings are suspended. I would encourage participants to move games online. There are already several members on Discord (a chat app) and it will be possible to play games remotely.

Please reach out for any connection details if you would like them.
