    I don't mind sanding but I hate spraying finish and the associated tasks.

    The inspiration will come back Brian , just a matter of time

    I don't know , I seem to remember Marty saying a mere 4 unfinished builds don't get you in the door at the unfinished club :p

    Always something on the bench Doug :lol: , not guitar work but I'm thinking something like this would make a pretty neat carve top

    Just finishing these today , trivets , hot plates , just engraving my signature and date

    This is the main reason why my LP is on the bench.

    So, like, Herb, are you inspired yet?
    And yeah, Brian, that's gorgeous. Doesn't great results like that make you like finishing just a little bit?

    Herb, was just thinking about this thread the other day. (as I was pondering if I would ever have the inclination to build an LP. Not really sure if I would)
    Anyway, got plans to get back to this someday?

    Wow , talk about a blast from the past Robert . I can't believe its been 5 years since I started this build :eek: Its still in pretty much the same state as when I left it (needing finish applied and assembly). I look at it and pick it up probably once a month . I would like to get it finished up , maybe come spring and some nice weather , we'll see how the spirits move me .

    C’mon, Herb, we got a lot of new blood here on the forum needs showing how to do a world-class finish. Or just wait another year or so and it’ll be petrified wood and won’t need a finish. :lol::lol:

    I've been wondering why I've had that feeling somebody was looking over my shoulder :D


    They are excellent drawings Nick , if you are thinking of building one they are very helpful .

    Now Rick , you know how the build really slows down once you get to the finish work , if it took 5 years to get here , what's the rest gonna take ? :D
    Wonder how petrified wood affects the tone ? Is there such a thing as petrified tone wood ? :twisted:

    I dunno Herb, but I bet if you post those questions over on Bad Dog, you could get a couple of good arguments going,:D:D
