Hey everyone, I figured I would first say thanks to all of my instructors at the TDPRI that have educated me for free over the past few years! I decided to embark on making my own tele or teles depending on whether I have any blunders or not. I made a set of 3/4 mdf templates and had a helluva time as it was my first time using a router. I've been a little apprehensive to use it, I have alot of respect for the tool, and I have really grown attached to all my extremities. Thus, I wanted to be super careful! My templates are for a telecaster custom and deluxe routed with p90s. They're my bag, I suppose... I printed off and glued up the TDowns blueprint onto my third mdf panel, but something was off.. The dude at Kinkos must've printed it to scale of the paper, not actual scale... BOOH! I'll get around to making an original tele template sometime in the future, but I obviously have to find a way to get the huge scale drawing off of the mdf... Damn strong glue! Anyways, I've shown a few shots of my two hopeful projects, one poplar I scored from a badass local hardwood store for 15 bucks and some oak I scored from Rockler's bargain bin for 8. Suggestions, yes, but spare my feelings with any harsh criticism, I'm only a student after all. Thanks again for everyone's posts thus far!
