Hey, that stained up nice and even.
Thanks - hopefully the blue will apply even too. We shall see.
Such a stellar process, watching you build it from the beginning. Super cool!

That grain is great!
Thanks - I'm very happy with it....and it was not pricey at all. Cheaper than a typical ash body blank.
That's looking really nice!
Ooph love the figure in that ash! Can't wait to see the color on it!
Color pics - coming right up - uploading them now.
I was anxious to get home from work today to get working on some color...still not sure of how 'blue' to make it. But I'm liking the results...
Start out with the sander to take the black off of the high spots:
Done with the sanding, and it's kinda reminding me of some 80's style acid wash jeans:
My very expensive mixing stick that is guaranteed to mix or your money back:
I think originally I was going to go with a darker blue, but I started lighter, and stuck with it:
So without really knowing what shade of blue to go with before starting, I'm very happy with the results. This ash certainly has a unique look and I think the color really brings it out. I'm going to let it dry and tomorrow see if it needs to be sanded back just a little bit - I think it may make it a bit more 'earthy' looking - like those acid wash jeans.
Looks great , matching headstock too
That is nice, my favourite colour !
Thanks - I made the headstock veneer from scrap off the body.
Thanks - looking forward to it with the clear coats
The blue looks really good on that figure. I think I see an angry sloth face on the lower left of the body.
That's gonna look fantastic. Matching headstock seals the deal.
hadn't noticed the sloth before
Great instructional thread and really great looking work. I like the matching headstock veneer.
Oh man that looks so good !!
