    Started this project when i was 15. It was supposed to be my second build. Other projects, and ultimately university got in the way. The imperfect finish had been holding me back. Finally decided that enough was enough and just spent a day finishing it up.

    Working on guitars again really got me thinking how much of an infulence the tele homedepot had on me when i was younger. I learned a lot about building things and persistence. You lot were always there for encouragement especially when i needed it most.

    Cheers everyone. Happy building.

    Will have white binding on top to match the pickguard and hide the seam. Little nervous on the dye/finish plan - wanna make the most of it. Top will start with yellow dye, and then go from there. May use the lye treatment on the cherry.

    Hey B - no pics for me either. And I'm really curious about your cedar stripper. I've known a bunch of strippers, but not a cedar one.

    More CNC fun.
    Going with the nibs again.
    Last time I scraped from full height binding strip. What a PITA!
    Took a while to model and set this up but I believe it's gonna save a lot of neck strain.

    Any tips to straighten those wrinkles? Pulling it harder when attaching would have just made the lines go all wonky :rolleyes:

    You can try a blowdryer to shrink it, without the speaker mounted, of course. Just make sure to keep it moving so you don't get any melted spots.

    Well, I look at this one most every day!
