Paulmarr's former Challenge build thread

Hi Everybody

I am a 2012 DNF so that lets me out of the beginners category although that is where I belong!

Good luck to all and really looking forward to some fun.

It's gonna be a Telecaster ... I'm sure the final design will be customised by the many mistakes I wil make.

Just so as you know, I refuse to type Oi Oi Oi.


Ah. I see what you did there.

Best of luck!

Ok I want to get off on the right foot so here is my proof of start:



here is what you are looking at:

Fijian Mahogany Body blank - one piece
Bookmatched Flame maple top boards
Flame Maple neck
Rosewood finger board blank
Australian Sheoak finger board blank (I cant decide yet)
roll of quilted maple veneer

Unsure of the final combination but thought I should leave myself a few choices! ;)

Lucky to be living on the other side of the planet - start time was 1:30pm here instead of midnight - so I scooted out to the shed to get started...

Used my templates from last year - found the optimum position for the body on the blank. It was a "paint grade" blank so quite a few knots to dodge - I tried to position the template where the least number of defects appear - and also as I am covering the front with a top of some kind it won't matter too much to the look.

Threw it on the bandsaw



And got most of the access - trim a little more then take it over to the ROSS to sand close to the line



I'll hopefully get back out there for an hour or two after dinner and make some dust! :)
