Excellent work and beautiful color!
Thanks, since the body was only 1 & 1/8" thick, I added a 1/4" Red Oak plywood cap to the top and bottom for the Bass. I used Purple Glitterblast paint for the Bass and Dupli-Color Perfect Match Ford Toreador Red Metallic for the guitar.

Longtime lurker first time poster. LPB-1 and Bazz Fuss in one box I'm working on for a friend. if my work bench looks too clean it's because it was halfway done turning back into Clark Kent....er I mean my living room table. Flying leads are for pots and switches just plugged them into breadboard to test, it works.
A 3D head nozzle heater, 180-260 celcius
Just about have this one finished up.
What's your favorite wiring setup for an LP? I'm thinking I want to do '50s wiring, but I've seen at least 2 versions claiming to be '50s, and I'm not sure which one's accurate.
From the workbench thread. A bit of a mess, but cherry telecaster with tortoise shell binding (only my second guitar - building from scratch, and the first I've tried binding).
Looking forward to doing this enough to actually get good at it.
Will reverse the order of operations on the fingerboard next time and slot it when it's still square, but probably after radius. Am a long time hand tool woodworker, so it wasn't a huge deal, but marking a radius fretboard on a guitar was tedious. Cutting wasn't much problem (I've got a stock of saws that I've made or replated, and one comes in right around .022".
By the tenth telecaster, I think I'll be able to make a really good one!!
Found time to finish this, a neck knife with olive wood handle.
That knife is beautiful Nick !
Nick, It's amazing!
Thank you both.
The electrolysis thing didn't do very well,as you can see in the blade, so I sand the whole thing and let the blade have this look of a little bit old rusty thing.
I will keep it this way, now I they I know what went wrong ,I will do a better one next time.
You're a man of many, many talents, Nick. Really nice work!
As we are all in this forum Roger!!!
Thank you very much my friend!
Awesome Nick! Nice job!
that's bloody gorgeous Nick
It would make a nice skinning knife
There's a hole in my knife collection for one of those
A little rough around the edges, can't believe the saw went all the way around without snapping. I guess it's not too bad for first try.
Now I have to learn how to make a sheath! If you make the knife please post photos.
Tell me that you are watching "Forged in Fire" !
I love that competition tv show.
Working on new stair treads and risers and came across a new to me product.
Varathane aged wood accelerator. It comes in gray and brown, as this one is.
It is supposed to turn freah wood onto aged wood. So, 2 coats later... it has no odor and it appears to be water base. What it does do is raise the grain massively! The treads are oak and my wife wanted it darker than the one coat shown first with the last being 2 coats. Overnight it darkened quite a bit more. If you finished it as it was it would be a rough as old barn wood. I had to sand knock it down quite a bit with 220 to get a decent surface for clear coat for stairs.
Could be useful for an aged guitar look.
I needed a fence for the drill press
I know, I know, I got carried away
Notice the extra center blocks
That looks like an off switch that The Hulk would use.. Nice job Rich!
I’m wiring a 2vol:2tone Warmoth Mooncaster right now Rog, using the 50s LP version where cap goes from volume center lug to tone outside lug.
