It's been a while. I was back in MN for an entire week as of late... and since then just catching up! Some things we've been working on here in Denver. Well, Joe & Christine spent the better part of a few days assembling VGR Insert Boxes. I have been laser cutting the wooden pieces and 3D Printing the inserts for about a month off and on. Joe spent days working the lathe and replenishing our supply of Inserts. We're now set up for the better part of a year I am guessing. The final product is quite impressive and organized! We're very happy with how these turned out.
Jason has been really excited to work on engraving projects. After completing a recent hand carved receiver on a client order... he's seen the value in perfecting his techniques. Expect more amazing hand-work in the coming year(s).
Some of the most beautiful hand work on a Harrelson Trumpet that I have ever seen... except mine I guess... I am biased probably.

Above you see Joe measuring finger buttons coming off the lathe. Assorted Bell Crook & Tuning Slide production in various stages. Jason hand working a horn. Jason on a client consultation. And all those bags full of couplers are for a new all bench air system Jason installed the day before yesterday. And... last but not least... me, below processing trim on the hand lathe.
