Ok….so it’s no secret we all love build pics. On other platforms folks post build and progress pics all the time, so I thought it would be cool to start a thread where we could post what we’re working on, or an idea we have, or even a question. A place to share where we might not want to take up a entire thread. Just a hub for builders to hang out:)

I will start it off! Todays project was this HHPFS in the classic layout of polished bronze and aluminum! Still my favourite!

Ok, so when you ' cut the chord', do you typically round it off completely on the lathe? Or do you cut it with a saw and then round it off manually?
I cut it off with the saw and round it on the belt grinder by hand. If I’m not going to polish it and I need all the sanding marks going in the same direction I will do it by hand then chuck it up in the lathe for the final sanding so everything looks right again. But mostly by hand.

Very good thread! I like the pictures threads like "what are you shooting today?" the most.

I will look here a lot to take ideas for when I decide make my own frame. Very interesting👍🎯
Me too! And I take a lot of build pics that I post on insta and Facebook, so I will post here as well. I hope others post here frequently as well. Looking forward to seeing what you start building!

Todays efforts after work 🎯👌👊👍 my own P-EVO design in hybrid materials and I spoke with @JASling and I said I would like to do my own turn on axe pfs but change the dimensions to 60mm axe head with 24mm tips and 12mm fork gap and overall length of 100mm and he said go for it (thanks bud💙👊👌🎯🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿) so made a start to that just fork gap and band grooves tomorrow then finish the acacia wood in Tru-oil the finish will be the same as the p-evo in the pic 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🎯👌👊💙👍
