Anyone else noticed how you never see Rog and Dave in the same room? The truth is out!
Scarf joints are easier than a lot of folks realize; once you get the angle right, just make sure the mating surfaces are completely flat and that you've got a good way to clamp it up.
And with such nice spruce, I'll be looking for a transparent finish...
Yeah I glued it up tonight. Wasn't difficult really.
Nothing but the best woods for this cheapo-caster!
Got the headstock angle off my Gibson.
Transferred it to the blank.
Trimmed and sanded.
Same angle as my Les Paul.
Glued and clamped.
Attached my straight edges to the body blank.
Routed one side with a pattern bit and finished with a flush trim bit.
Traced the outline.
Cut a donor piece and glued it to the side.
That's all for tonight.
Looks good so far Brian.
Good luck on your build! I will enjoy learning from this.
Good Idea on the donor piece.... I have a 12" plank that I hesitate to cut up...this may be a way to use it.
Good recovery and very efficient use of resources. Looking good!
+1. Very nice...
Thank you sir! We're both learning then since some of this is a first for me.
Thanks Marty. I figured since this is already like a 30 piece body, what the heck, save a few bucks.
Much appreciated sir!
Good save on the neck.
Nice save on the neck, Brian. Also looking forward to seeing the carve evolve. Great start!
Thanks guys, I figured I might have to save it somehow.
Rick, I'm looking forward to doing the carve. I have a bit of a plan for it because I'd like to do binding. It'll be mostly done by hand so I can start developing the skills.
Found some good fretboard wood.
It's Santos rosewood. Haven't heard of that variety but it's very dense and I like the grain. Anyone familiar with it?
