Thanks! Do that it's fun stuff! 

Just saw your swirl video awesome build, how about a luminescent swirl?

I think I found a supplier and I have an idea for an in-progess build actually ;)

might be cool in a swirl too, would need to check how the paints tolerate the pigment, but should be totally doable

@pan_kara  Cool looking forward to see that build then. There is also lumniscens paint available maybe that is a better option for a swirl, maybe i will try that some day. 

 

@ScottR Well that's for sure, maybe you don't even notice if someone turns off the lights while playing this thing. It lights up the room quite good :D

I've net held an ash neck...but I've held ash baseball bats and they feel just great. I've got some I was considering making a neck from .... just because.

Same here. In fact, I'm doing one as a test run before committing to the "real" workpiece. So far, I have a perfectly workable Ash neck!

Never tried one either but this one feels great, thinking of just adding some black stain and danish oil.

That IS a tasty burger.

Thanks, think I will add a black crackle edge on it. Or maybe just go for this not sure yet! A crackle edge could look awesome with the yellow as bottom colour.

As it happens, I was going to ask where you got such a nice piece from. Locally or simply within the EU? Enquiring minds over in the terrifying forests across the sea need to know. :mellow:

Stunning!

And absolutely perfect for that body shape. I can't wait to see that beast with some clear on it. Er.....are you going to clear it or oil it or what? Those cavities will present some challenges for a clear coat.

@Prostheta got it from espen.de you should check it out! they got some nice pieces, bought a couple of time from them and allways been happy with what I got. 

 

@ScottR Thanks, going to do a epoxy pouring on the top tonight I think it's the only way to handle those voids and some other imperfections that can't be sanded away. It will also give a first glance how this will appear under the clear :) also helps to stiffen this piece a little. Poplar is very soft and chips easily. That's why I haven't drilled for the bridge or pots yet. I'm afraid that will just give me some extra work if I do that before the resin pouring.

I think they were filled in a previous step, Scott. What we're looking at here is maybe a difference in shininess which makes them seems like voids. Maybe.

Nope filled them yesterday, didn't get all of them with one pouring so will do another tonight. But some pictures first. The 3d effect that appeared with resin was really amazing.
