Lots of finish work.

First coats of TruOil on the uke, level sanded the acoustic, and the archtop refinish is ready for level sanding.

This carbon part is a pre-molded, hollow monocoque structure that will fit into the neck thusly. The sturcture runs underneath the nut and extrudes into the headstock. This produces a rigidity to the neck that can't be produced another way.

Wow, some really cool stuff here as usually. Always impressed.

In between glazing coats on a wenge 000 build I had time to get started on this 1944 000-18 neck reset. This particular guitar looks like hell and needs a lot of restoration but it really did have a fantastic sound.

Chris, I've long been an admirer of your work, but these golf tees seem a step too far :) look good, what are they?

I did the top binding/purfling pos my Larson Brothers inspired Jumbo. Puflings are .375" wide - I used Holly Binding/Black/Dentile/red/Pearl/red/dentile/black. .065/.020/.078/.020/.049/.020/.078/.020 inches for each. After I pulled the plastic filler strip, I cracked pearl into the gaps. I still need to final sand, etc, but these pics give an idea.

Hi Ed!

Thanks! Binding is Holly. I'll get shots of back and sides after I do the back binding - I worked on the top first. B&S are beautiful dark Coco. Top is Red spruce.

I guess it's OK --if you like that "minimalist/functional" approach.

Also upgrading my dust collection. Shop upgrades are nice once complete, but a huge time suck.

Snarly!
Did a few like that and then decided to do the binding separate from the purfling.
Nice Glenn!

Selecting tonewoods for my next build. The vendor said this was AAAAA spruce, but I think it is a little dark.

A new concept build for me. Thin, light soundboard, triple X braced, just roughed out, still a fair bit of sanding to go.
