The outlines of the hull cross sections are drawn on sheets of plywood, particle board or MDF.
Gunnels are long strips of wood which are attached inside and outside to the top edge of the hull to give it rigidity when combined with the thwart. Really nice job,to buy a canoe like that one would dent the bank account for sure,but worth it. The problem I had was that I cut mu own straps with a table saw and they were not very consistent in thickness, even along the length of the same strip. The fiberglass cloth on inside and outside of the wood makes a laminated core structure which is very stiff and strong.

Kathy Carrol of 'Faux by Kathy' is an absolute master of painting magic as far as I am concerned.
I am such a sucker for the magic that can be created simply by placing tape on walls and then painting ever so carefully over it.A  What a creative idea to encapsulate this long master bedroom. In Uzege, a dreamy area in Gard, southern France, Annie, an American stylist originally from New York, transformed this old farm into a glorious home full of character. Kitchen remodel painting cabinets with alabaster white and Martha Stewart Mourning Dove and a 50 dollar Wagner paint sprayer. I wonder if there is room to do a cabinet kinda like this and leave some open for your mugs then doors on the bottom for extra storage. Tomatoes like the company of basil, parsley, bush beans, mint, nasturtium, marigolds, garlic, and leafy vegetables. Use chalkboard paint on the inside of your kitchen shelves to get more organized with things like your weekly meals, recipes, and grocery lists! Chris, received the guitar in tip top shape.A  Very beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!A  Another fantastic instrument.
A I finally got around to recording it the other night, and it was really easy to get a decent sound on tape (well, digital tape). Chris, I just wanted to let you know some compliments I received on your work this past weekend.
It's been great having a guitar that you don't have to amplify except if you are in a loud club environment playing with other electric instruments, and you don't have to force sound to get volume when you don't have amplification. The sound is superb and, of course,it's a beautiful piece of work that I will treasure for years.
I could go on all day about how pleased I am, but for starters, the sound is soooooo complex. A (I honestly don't know that much about luthiery, but I like finding out good things aobut my guitar!). Man, sometimes it feels like I could physically pull sound out of this guitar when I play it.
Email to Chris Kachian after a concert in Twin cities chris outstanding concert on saturday!A  thanks so much for letting me know about it. Dallas TX The guitar is great.A  I have one other that has almost as good a sound but the extra harmonic overtones, vibrations, etc. This guitar is the sweetest thing I've put my hands on in a long time (aside from my one-year old daughter).


As I sit in my favorite chair listening to Christopher Parkening playing Chaconne by Bach, I can't help but take a few glances over at my brand new Spruce and Brazillian Chris Carrington guitar and dream of greatness.A  A new guitar doesn't make one great, but it sure is a wonderful catylist for motivation and inspiration.
But spending a four-figure amount on anything requires microscope-esque examination, so I talked Chris into letting me take #164 to the Christopher Parkening master class in Montana.A  It soon got praise from not only the students, but was given a real christening in my heart after Mr. Chris not only helped me in finding this guitar, but he also has spent care and time explaining how he crafts the nuances of the instrument and how things work in his shop, which I appreciate.A  He obviously loves his work and I am proud to now own my Chris Carrington Spruce guitar and will enjoy breaking it in in the years to come.
I purchased a flamenco guitar with cypress body and a cedar top from Chris in March 1999.A  I have enjoyed it since.
I think it is remarkable that Chris is able to make an instrument so well suited and adjusted to the rather specialized world of flamenco.A  I hope to enjoy mine for many years. Chris, thanks so much for enhancing my life with the richness of whatever you touch.A  The very best to you, your beautiful wife Diane and your boys. Dominic Frasca, New York City Chris Carrington is one of the most open minded and creative guitar makers on the planet, he understand what a player wants and needs from a guitar becuase he is a player , and a bad ass one at that.A  His guitars represent the future of classical guitar.
Use the table saw with feather boards clamped to the guide and table to keep the strip thickness uniform.

The old one was just getting too crowded.A  Now I have much more space for keeping your projects and my ideas flowing!
It's not about time consuming, labor intensive routines or projects, it's about taking our time back, enhancing our lives and leaving a legacy. I performed with it last night at a coffee shop in Denton and received so many compliments on it. This guitar has the sweetest sound that I have ever heard and I will put it up against any of the top guitar makers. I frequently play an outdoor patio at a restaurant where I usually would play amplified using an Ovation. It works in all contexts (I've used it for gigs, chamber music as well concertos.) and through any system. The joints are carefully fit, the neck is a dream, the details are carefully done, the wood is nice, it looks good. I couldn't let you know any sooner how much I like the guitar because I didn't want to set it down long enough to write to you. Carrington proved to be a clean and lively guitarist whose playing was A refreshingly free of extranaeous squeaks. She projects as well as any guitar I've ever played and has that dark and sweet sound I was looking for -- reminds me of a good cognac.
Also, I used the electronics in a chamber rehearsal and the flute player said that he could hear my part very clearly. I originally bought it to use as an electric classical guitar for chamber music, my group Ufonia and concerti.
I have big palms, and the shoulder helps me with my thumb position automatically.A  No pain radiating up my neck.
Yesterday I received #102, or my new guitar as I like to call it.A  It is beautiful and sounds the same. I wanted to buy a world-class concert guitar and I'd decided on an instrumentA  from one of the big-name luthiers.A  I figured it was the only way to get a guitar with really spectacular sound. The strips used for the stems need to be steamed and clamped onto the stem forms then allowed to dry before gluing them together. The wood strips alone are held together with glue and the hull eventually would swell and leak without the fiberglass or some sort of water proofing.
In fact, a boy, Adam I think was his name, about 12 years old and a pretty good player was very interested and I gave him all of your information.
I performed an art opening at a large gallery here in Raleigh this past weekend and received many compliments on the volume and sound of the instrument. It plays evenly throughout its entire range, has a very punchy top range, a delightfully sonorous middle range, and the loudest bass response I've heard from any guitar. I finally have an instrument that is well balanced across the strings and up and down the neck, as well as having a rich and complex tone. Finally a string broke, so I decided, before I rushed to change it, that I'd finally e-mail you to tell you how great the guitar is and how much I love it.
A Performing on an instrument he made himself, he achieved an excellent balance with his colleagues, the guiitar being audible at all times.
I like the fact that she's not too moody; it takes about 2 minutes to warm her up each day and then she sings like a Roman siren.


I did not get much time playing (too much travelling this week) but I cant wait to go back home and play it. The sound is simply amassing, particularly for a new guitar.A  What a beautiful sound and it is also sounds somewhere between flamenco and classic Thank you very much for the guitar, I'll treat it right I hope ot see you soon, please give me call when you can make it to Michigan.
I was overjoyed to find it was a wonderful concert instrument at an extremely affordable price.
Alongside the expert craftsmanship, it sounds so very balanced, sonorous, bass expressive and sweet. With each tour, he'd bring a newly finished guitar fit with electronics that he would play in my shows. If you are prepared to take a little time planning how the wood will be arranged it is not a hard project.
Once the hull is completely stripped it is time to trim the strips flush with the bow and stern stems. A When you hear it, you going to think that I'm an even bigger asshole than you previously thought.
It works in all a€?contexts (I've used it for gigs, chamber music as well concertos.) and a€?through any system. Thanks for your advice on the setup and materials, it is the easiest to play classical guitar I've tried.
She's also very well balanced in the upper and lower range, bringing my bass notes out much more clearly with less effort. First, the absolute concertA  quality of the guitar, plugged or unplugged.A  The intonation is perfect.
You could say that he learned his craft through constant testing and retesting of his designs while actually in concert. It plays evenly throughout its entire range, has a very a€?punchy top range, a delightfully sonorous middle range, and the loudest bass a€?response I've heard from any guitar.
I have played for hours going through all my old songs that I learned just to hear the big sound it makes. I had problems with technique on my last guitar (which I haven't played since I bought this one) that have disappeared now, so the time we spent measuring for my hands paid off. I base this on the fact that I traded in my 1979 Kohno for it, and had no idea I would be doing so when I walked into the store.
Second, I was stunned by the high fidelity produced by the electronics.A  Absolutely incredible! The true wonder of all this though, is a€?that all those qualities translate into the amplified application.
It seems like it will be a very versatile instrument to use for playing A different venues. And when I added the chorus and reverb I found aA  beautiful tone that I intend to use in the upcoming recording project.A  So, all of this is a tribute to you, an extremely gifted luthier and guitarist. I'm amazed that a guitar with such a good acoustic quality sounds so natural when amplified. It has a wonderful tone as a straight acoustic that I know will open up beautifully with some playing and the RMC is really going to change the way I use the Roland synth and how I compose. Your combination of talent is extremely rare, and I feel very lucky to haveA  stumbled upon you as I did! One was a cutaway with MIDI accessability, and the other two were traditional concert guitars.
A reporter that was covering the event asked me at length about where I got the guitar - he obviously was a player and took down your web address. I've been playing in public frequently lately and have never heard a richer sound come from an amplified classical guitar. I was truly amazed to see guitars with electronics sound comparable to much more expensive concert guitars. My students have purchased several of Chris's guitars, and I own a spruce top with a MIDI pickup.
I may have to raise the action a bit if I play classical gigs or get used to playing closer to the bridge when playing rest stroke passages.A  Do you recommend tying knots at the end of the string rather than looping it over the bridge as I noticed you had done that.
