    This is The Home Depot . All guitars made from wood begin like this . Picture 1 shows a basic tree , albeit a Black Walnut tree . What is in store is me showing the TDPRI the various steps that I use in processing a tree into what eventually will end up as a guitar . Doesn't get more DIY than that .

    This is how that piece of wood we end up holding in our hands starts out.

    It like where does milk come from - the store? :)

    Split on the rift too ;).

    Maybe it's a put down; as in "You're basic, Tree." ;)

    Seriously, looks like some very nice walnut, can't wait to see what kind of guitar you make with it.

    My dad and i used to take stumps that size, drill a hole down to the center, put a mixture of pellet fertilizer, black powder and flammable fluid into the hole, run a fuse to it and plug the hole , light the fuse and RUN!

    And split em that way.

    Wood wedges would go a flyin
