Optional: follow along with a kit of supplies to assemble your own case. You can order any case on our website for 50% of the finished case cost and we will supply you with all the parts ready for assembly. You will need to provide your own clear Gorilla Glue, super glue, black stain, and sanding block or sand paper (120 grit or less). You should also have access to a belt sander to sand down the 3 edges of your case flush to prepare it for stain.
For anyone that needs individual help during or after the class I’m happy to work one on one with you in an online video conference or by phone or text.
