Seeking amateur Luthiers in Central Texas

As an amateur guitar builder( I do not qualify myself as a Luthier yet!) I would like to be able to share ideas and resolve problems with other builders in my area. I have been involved in building for 3 years, and have built 15 steel string instruments, but am still learning and trying to devise better ways of doing things.

Hi, I am interested in what tuning you use for your lap steel? I am building one from scratch and when it's done I am going to teach myself to play it! What tuning do you think would be a good one to learn on? I am well versed on the guitar and was thinking about either starting with regular tuning or open E, or maybe open D, since it's like open E, only a whole step I am looking for your words of advice! Anyway, here is the address to my website and to the photo/description page for my still incomplete lap steel! If you get a chance to visit, please feel free to sign the Guestbook!

Thanks, Edward
