really unique build. as others... love the fingerboard continuation. nice work.
Looking good Lisa!!
Rub some shellac on it, it'll protect the wood for the events and cures pretty fast. You can always add some clear lacquer on top of it afterwards.
Oh and fantastic work btw, thanks so much for sharing!

Almost there. Have any of you played an unfinished instrument at a show or on a recording? I'm recording bass this week and hoping to use this one, then I have a show a week after that. Not enough time for finish to cure.[/QUOTE]
I was thinking to myself, Lisa, you put that pickup in the neck? Was that an oops or what?
Then I saw the finished picture and understood, that is stunning!!
My first thought was that the fretboard extension took away from the glue up but it is a perfect accent piece. You need to put your logo in that piece!!
I won't have the shaping and sanding done by then, though. I have a lot more to do to the heel transition, haven't started the belly cut, and need to do the finish sanding.
I might actually be able to record with this tomorrow. Last week this was just a passing thought like "I wonder if there's anyway I can get it recording-ready by next week" and didn't think I actually could.
Wish me luck on getting the setup done after work today.
I had a helper with the string-up. This is Obie.
All of my cables are at our drummers house, so I had to do this. It worked!
That’s fantastic Lisa!
Ugly. Actually, the ugliest thing I'd saw in my life. Sent it to my address to be burnt.
Sao Paulo, Brazil.
PS: Please, pack it well. I don't want it be damaged until I send it to fire.
Amazing work and craftsmanship!!!
Really a beautiful instrument Lisa.
And good luck getting the set up
I was able to get it setup good enough for recording, there's a couple shots in here:
I have a couple weeks until the next show, so here I am taking the bass apart.
What I had left is:
-Carve belly cut
-Carve heel & heel end of neck
-A small forearm/bow contour
I got the $9.99 angle grinder from Harbor Freight and got to try it out today. It was pretty fun!
I used a 60 grit flap disc.
I have video clips on instagram, but they don't seem to work here.
I have a bit more sanding to do, then I can get it shellaced. :bassist:
Wow!!! Great work!
That is quite impressive Lisa, nice work. I love how the contouring brings out the layers!
Sounded pretty good for an unfinished instrument! The carve really does enhance the layering and Woodworking in general.
Thanks guys! It's been so long since I designed this bass that I forgot about the image in my head of how that wenge layer would show up in the heel, so that was a pleasant surprise after I started carving!
I have to admit that right now I like the back better than the front...
