I think some f-holes like these would look pretty slick with that body shape.
Here's another neat idea for sound holes, in keeping with the canoe theme:
Thats a neat idea!
^ yes that would be awesome!
always love watching you work Bentley.
Wow 3 week build. Great start.
Seeing your past builds i know you can pull it off. Not many can.
I'm definitely going to mock that one up.
Thanks! I appreciate it!
Well, it's probably a little less. I'm graduating on Friday and have a bunch of finals I've been busy with, no time to work this week. I'm just trying to make sure I've got everything ready for when I come home, but that is two weeks without school, I could build a 5 guitars in two weeks if I really wanted to!
Interesting shape. Good luck with your finals. And Congratulations.
You could also make the headstock laminated maple and mahogany, shaped like a paddle. Laminate the whole neck . . . This one is a little too fancy, IMO, but you get my idea. You could even brand a beaver outline on it, for Canadian authenticity!
He ain't joking, B's go mad skills and pretty darn creative too. Always a pleasure to watch his builds.
Very excellent work, B. When I read your opening post, I'm not ashamed to admit that I got a little teary eyed. This is going to be a wonderful tribute.
Bentley that is such a great tribute to Glen. I know that he would be proud of you.
I also know that the challenge is lots of fun as well as hard work but, you need to be studying for that calculus test. Someday you may need something to fall back on when your guitar building company gets monotonous. Calculus may be just the ticket.
Good luck with both the guitar and the calculus!!
How bout beavers, maple leaves and moose! [emoji1]
Good luck with calculus B! I enjoyed taking that. Real math!
I'm enrolled at UBCO for applied sciences. I plan on persuing a major in mechanical engineering. I want to build spaceships!
Thank you, Roger. Means a lot.
I got 70% on the final. Pretty average with the rest of the class. I think i finished with 90%. Good enough!
A decent amount of progress. Really Just finished gluing the front and back up, and I actually had the centre chunk done a while ago, just didnt take a picture of it.
Here's the centre strip. Quite a bit is getting turned into a tremolo cavity, and then I think I'll make holes to allow sound to resonate freely throughout both chambers.
I put a small black walnut strip in the back one, since canoes often have some sort of accent stripe. Also, why not. I just cut it down on the tablesaw (out of a floorboard) then sanded it thin on the spindle sander with a fence, basically a vertical thickness sander.
I also planed it down to even out all the strips and get it to the thickness i wanted. Thumb for scale.
To glue the top together I used tape to clamp it, and for the back I just rubbed and let sit. Nice tight glue joints! And that's probably all for five weeks!
Thanks for reading, Bentley.
We'll all be anticipating your return!
Bon voyage, B. Have fun!
Good luck with this build.I think with the good start you got,you should finish on time.I'd like to see the finished guitar.Good luck
Great job so far.
