Wow, Glen, that's gorgeous!
It's been used for many years................the old Alvarez/Yairi custom shop used to offer it as well
Now that is some cool wood. Something about it says "Tele Deluxe" to me. Big headstock and all. Mmmm... tasty.
Ok, so I'm definitely going to show my ignorance here. I had no idea about chestnut trees .
Ya learn something new every day...
That is absolutely beautiful, Glen!
That chest looks fantastic, Rick. You've done yourself proud on that project.
Thanks, Z. Probably won't go the deluxe route. I don't want to cover up all this great wood with a huge pickguard.
Great minds Rick! Yes they move their heads to and fro!
Really pretty canoe Glen!
I was going to ask you Rick how you were going to get that upstairs. It is beautiful but I bet heavy. Time to cook your boys dinner. ;-)
Stuff is as hard as nails .
I know of a semi-local source for old Chestnut. Its just a little too rich for my blood, at the present.
I also have an old Chestnut dresser my grandma got for me when I was a young'un. I'm hoping to restore it one day.
Great build as always, Roger. I'd say Walnut would be a perfect fretboard to go with Chestnut.
What did the worms say when Roger start the build.
"Hey guys this is big luck, we buy a lumber and in a few weeks it is going to look like a TELECASTER mansion, the other worms are going to envy us".
Go Roger Go.
This is my favourite one. It was my first and took 500 hours.
The American chestnut may not be gone forever.
Here is a Washington Post article from a few years back talking about the re-birth of the chestnut.
I love that old Chestnut. In West Virginia, there was quite a bit of it available, but it sold for a premium after folks started gutting old barns in the 90's and selling it as reclaimed lumber.
I've had it dangled in front of me, but never had any.. One day..
Thanks, guys. I just happened to luck onto this piece at the shutter mill down the road. As I said, it's big enough for 1 body, and I paid $20 for it. I'm excited to get this one working
I think it's just any tree you sit under in the morning. Could be wrong
wow glen that is beautiful.
Really Rich? Do you really expect me to let that one go? Oh never mind.
