Oh WOW! Stunning.
Damn, that is beautiful! Nice work, Sir!
How'd you roast it?
You insult it in front of a crowd on tv.
360 F for 2 hours then 375 F for an hour, then oven off and cooled inside.
There's some minor warping along one side, but nothing a planer can't fix.
Looks good! I'll have to give it a shot.
Great progress tonight, the neck is nearly complete!
Evo gold fretwire is awesome. I highly recommend it if you haven't worked with it!
Well that’s a thing of beauty. Nice wood choices.
More shaping done on the neck, and headstock to right about half an inch.
Mineral spirits on roasted maple is amazing, I was thinking I'd leave it unfinished but on second thought Tru oil is happening.
Let us know how the roasting goes- I have yet to find anyone willing to divulge the roasting process...
edit- I found your answer already. Thank you!
You've got it! Also to note, milling roasted maple is awesome, and the sawdust smells amazing!
That's a really cool store; super nice helpful people there.
I'm partial to cherry and they always have nice cherry there.
Also always pleasantly surprised how reasonable their prices are for millwork.
Great looking. build!
holy crap, that's awesome!
immense respect for people who can build stuff!
Nice build, love the thinline.
And now for my second-least favorite part - waiting for the finish to dry, and building up lots of coats. I'm currently using Tru-oil thinned 1 to 1 with naphtha to get it to lay down well and stay thin, but a few more coats and I'll go back to full strength on the top to get it glossier than the back, sides and neck.
Also, if you'd like I can give you full plans for my high-end hanging system.
Wow. That’s looking really good Tdp. I too hate waiting over curing times for finishes. Can’t wait to see this beauty come together.
Closer and closer...
And even closer!
Very nice. I'm jealous of you guys with these kind of skills.
