      The Delmore Brothers were a very influential pioneering country music duo from the early s to the late s that featured the tenor guitar. Plectrum guitars were not made in as large numbers as tenor guitars and are now rarer. The first note root note is D, the third note is F and the fifth note is A. The Eddie Freeman Special had been designed by English tenor banjoist Eddie Freeman to have a better six string guitar sonority for rhythm guitar work than the normal tenor guitar with its very high A string.

      Itinerant turners known as Bodgers set up temporary pole lathes near the source of wood for turning furniture parts. These were mostly produced as one-off custom instruments but, for a short time inGretsch manufactured the only production electric solid-bodied tenor guitar, the Gretsch DuoJet. Rough turning involves turning the piece only to its general shape, leaving enough thickness so that after turning it can be allowed to dry to equilibrium moisture content and distort. The woodturner is at liberty to choose from a variety of tools for all of these techniques, and the quality of the cuts improves with practice wielding the tool selected.

      The archaeological record of woodturning is limited to illustrations because wood is a fiber prone to rot. Many woods create dust that is actually a health hazard. Between andindustrial arts teachers, hobbyists, artists, collectors, and tool suppliers developed the symposium format for exchange of information about the craft. Particular care is also required for wooden shapes that are not circular, such as off-center work, or bowls with wings or square rims. Several chapters are dedicated to the choice of materials and surface treatments, followed by a synthesis on heating wood and varnish. This type of turning is described as 'between centers.
