No, only herbal tea!
I don't drink coffee! If Jeff does, that's his problem!
Art at this level of function does have it's drawbacks, in terms of creating it! My ideas always seem soooo cool when I think 'em up, you know? But the ones like this really leave me exhausted by the end...getting it all to work, then the stress of worrying about whether or not it works well enough, or will continue to work after next week or next month....and still not to compromise (too much) on those artistic yearnings....
These days, when I finish something like this I often feel like I've been rolled by a big wave, and am lying wiped out on the beach with sand in all my orifices, unable to move.....
Well, maybe not that bad...
Anyway....Yes, Hoyt levers! Brad's Dad came through with some beauties. The rainbow/checkerboard sticks are spring steel-shafted hammers with wooden heads; No, the jawari bridge is not convertible....that may actually be possible, but I burned my brains out years ago trying to get it to work on an instrument, and have been reluctant to try again. I did (proudly, which shows you how warped I really am) spend some 40 hours on the shaping of the jawari table!!
I've been lucky to have it strung up and in my possession for a few weeks now, letting things settle in, trying to make a video of me demonstrating it, and so on. It's in my bedroom (no case yet, and that's the safest place on the property), so I get to see it first thing every morning. What fun!
I'll get a better text description of all the weird details up on my website sometime soon.
