A bandsaw sounds like a great idea! Meantime, it was a balmy -10 (15oF) and the kids were occupied so I set up the ol’ workbench and ever so patiently jigsawed out a poplar tele. This is being done reverse - it will be the back, with an eventual flame maple top... if all goes well. P.S. I’m new here, but have been admiring everyone’s work and learning for a while now. Started just troubleshooting things off the site but the Tele Home Depot has inspired me to take the plunge headlong into building. Frankly, have more ideas and projects on the go than I really have time for!
