With my new Jet drum sander purchase, I've been able to thickness sand the poplar panels that were from a pile on the side of the road by my home. I decided to proceed with a Silvertone 1444 AKA dolphin nose bass. These were Danelectro made and sold through Sears back when I was a kid. I had one later on in life as a flea market purchase and flipped it. I always said I'd make one sometime and now is the time.
