I've got two.
The one has a horn shaped like a friends old Gibson F style mandolin
And the other has a crazy looking dog! Jeesh evil looking, but a fun build.
So many cool projects here!
Just finished a bone saddle, nut and general clean up on this last night:
Now to get back to my germanium fuzz and C-Moy headphone amp projects. I could get more done if I didn't have a day job...
Two of the current projects....
for what it's worth; the second pic is an eletric mando, I started about 5 years ago out of scraps I had laying around, found it in a box, found a small piece of cherry and roughed a neck out, wah law, half way to finished electric mando..
Casting call today...
Hope it comes out easy or I'm going to be sad. The objective is a nested set of templates so I don't have to remove the big one to do a secondary rout. The cast will be used as a template for machining MDF templates.
Today I buzzed out a prototype body out of basswood for a fellow. He designed it. It reminds me of a Vox teardrop for some reason. Tomorrow may be a Hendrixian tele body for another fellow down South. This stuff is keeping me hopping. They must know I work in an unheated shed. When it rains ....it snows...it's snowing at the moment.
On my workbench today.... a big mess.
This Terz and a few other acoustics, One day I'll get around to finishing a tele.
This looks interesting. I've seen Jonny Lang play something similar. Do explain please.
Guess I should post some actual shots of my bench as it stands at 11:13pm.
It's a mess. I'm working diligently on a thinline build. The bottom is pine the top is mahogany. I'm really liking this one.
Here's my favorite part 2 pounds 12 ounces.
Remind me never to invite you to my shop, I'd be embarrassed if that's what you call a mess.
(there are gaps where you can put things!)
Is the answer "Ham"?
on the bench... the next one... just hanging out waiting to be telefied.
it's an old Hoop Pine beam I found in my old man's shed when I cleared it out, it was covered in 1/16"+ thick, crazed white , powdery oil paint and would have to be 50 yrs old or more .....
the white ants got into one section,, I hacked them out with a machete... then put it through a planer to see what I had...
it's dry, light, straight, fine grained..rustic even .... it should go OK.... when I get around to it...
the white ants got into one section,, I hacked them out with a machete...
I find this mental image pretty amusing.
Finish my walnut/butternut amp stand today.
Still waiting to get the mahogany neck blank in the post to work on the SG.
I found myself playing 2 guitars all the time - I'm sure you can guess which two - and it dawned on me that one of them just felt right against my body and the other one just felt right in my hands, so I put the shape of the one that felt good against my body on the top, where the guitar contacts my body the most, and put the shape of the one that felt good in my hands on the bottom, where the guitar contacts my hands the most and Bob's your uncle.
That's cool. Are you going to use those three pickups together or are those just options? If all three how will it be wired etc.
very theraputic too, Guitarbuilder....
I tried to do it neatly and I keep my machete very sharp...it's a good tool....... ha ha ..
and a good way to tell how solid the wood is... it cuts clean or it crushes....
if it crushes, it's rotten... why mess with power tools or hammers and chisels out on the wood pile when you've got your trusty hand held multi-purpose blade in hand...
