    Or better yet, guys like Rev who know better, can point out stuff you didn't even know were mistakes!

    Seriously though...lots of very helpful guys here.

    That's what my mandolin teacher always said, "If you're gonna make mistakes, make 'em LOUD!" Nothing worse than not trying. Thanks, Rev.

    I didn't take many of this project, compared to other stuff. A lot of it was being slightly embarrassed to be a newb. But hey, we all start out somewhere.[/QUOTE]

    I agree with Rev. I only have DIY stuff and I have no problem showing off my mistakes. Mistakes are the only way you learn (I'm learning A LOT). The most important part is have fun and not worry about it.

    Jonathan, All I can say is FANTASTIC! I have a few DIY projects but, not an UQ yet. I am very impressed. I have realized that the only way to get better at something is to jump in and do it. Can't never could until you tried. Keep up the great work and the pics you posted were great also. Regards, Dale

    kc7fys, looking at your pictures it doesn't look too overstuffed to me.
    The lower fill powders and type like duck can make it feel dense and heavier
    than normal.
    Looks like an awesome first, looks warm too, I like the color as well.
