Well, here I am. This should be a hoot!!!
Good luck... can't wait to see what you come up with.
Good luck! I know you'll make us Okies proud, which is a good thing because I'm pretty sure I'm going down in flames!
Good Luck...a hoot is definitely one way to describe what is about to ensue!!
Good Luck. I haven't gotten past changing pickguards
Good to see ya' in, good luck!
Hey, your feet don't fit no limb! LOL.
Good to see you enter this year. Good luck!
No "sooners" on starting this build eh? Good luck and have fun.
Should be fun, I am getting excited to see what everyone comes up with.
I finally got a chance to get started. I get much, but I did get the wood picked out.
It is some mahogany for the body and neck, spalted maple body cap, and rosewood for the fretboard.
I managed to get the wood cut into blanks, and the body blank glued up.
Nice spalted maple .
Love the wood choices (since I'm doing pretty much the same thing, lol). Maybe we
need a "Mahogany/Maple Category" all to ourselves.
Looking forward to watching the progress.
Mahogany is great, that spalt will look really good too! I'm looking forward to your build.
Yeah, I was kinda surprized to see so many mahogany builds.
Last year I thought I was going to be original with P-90s, but a lot of builds used those.
One thing with this group, if it ain't been thought of, then it is probably a good thing that no one thought of it. Um, or something like that.
Wow, that maple is nice. I usually use my phone for viewing, but today I am on a real PC, and can actually see! Nice.
Okay, I was driving home after work, just minding my own business. I swear, I wasn't lookin' for any trouble. Sure I stopped into Home Depot, but it was just for a little while.
And whadda ya know?
These tools followed me home.
I'd been promising myself these very tools, so I guess I'll let them stay.
The planer works like a champ.
I dunno about not planing anything less than 5/16", however. I had a few saw marks left, so I went ahead and took the fretboard down to 1/4", and it seemed to plane just fine. I got 6 nice fretboards outta that board. I also got 2 neck blanks out of the shorter piece of mahogany (hopefully this time, I'll only need 1).
Got everything rough cut.
Well played sir.
