I think it was always natural for me to pick it up left-handed so I did. I write right-handed, and I bat right-handed, but I do a whole bunch of other stuff lefty: guitar, shoot bows and rifles. Only a few things can I do with both hands -- I'm can shoot pistol both hands, and I think I could teach myself to write left-handed -- I'm not too bad. I've tried batting lefty and it is way hard. :-)
Happy to be a bad influence on you. :-)
Ah, excellent idea -- I kept the template, but hand't thought about trying to repair it. Will definitely do this. :-)
I bought the neck (~$40), the controls (~$50), and pickups (~$100), so about $200 for the parts.
Thanks! Finding the wood with some character was the fun part. :-)
Thank you -- it was a learning process, so I hope all the detail helps other people try their own too.
Thanks! It was a lot of fun being able to make all my own choices for how it would look. :-)
I entered it over there; it just hasn't appeared yet! I'm glad you enjoyed it -- this was a lot of fun!

With laser printed images? Or ink printed images?I didn't know this trick, but will definitely try it -- I would remove the time needed to make the gel medium dry and cure. Thanks for the tip!

I was thinking I would size it based on my smallest carry-on so it would sit in the bottom and not have to fold. A deflatable pillow is a great idea!

The Esterbrook nibs have the front end (nib and comb) like a normal fountain pen feed, but there is no attachment nor delivery system like there is on a standard fountain pen feed. These were nibs that were in their heyday intended to be dip nibs. They do hold a LOT of ink -- I can do a significant fraction of a page of writing with a single dip. :-)

I'm glad you like it! I've always played a house-mix of 2e + Classic; that being said, I'm growing quite fond of 5e -- I think the mechanics is much more streamlined and has a nice, uniform philosophy to the way it works. :-)
Thanks! I'm very pleased with how they all turned out!
Ah, a lip. That's a good idea, and probably easier to deal with then a peg that has to be lined up. I've never done something like that, but I bet I could do it with my router. :-)
