  1. I'd say roll it on over to next month. Let the air guitar beat out several wooden ones or even a couple of metal ones as well. SR
  2. White limba might be the way to go. I wouldn't normally recommend basswood, but with that ziricote top and a rosewood back plate, it might make a good balance and it is definitely pale. SR

    Steel body strat

    I'm looking forward to seeing this one come about. SR
  4. Yours is the first air guitar ever entered as well. And it was very well done too, as far as I can see. SR

    Obol guitar build

    How thick is that bronze shell? Presumably thick enough to have plenty left after leveling the surface... SR

    Welcome to the forum and nice work so far. It's good to have another member pop up in Tasmania, too. @curtisa

    BEER! What's in your fridge?

    From No Label Brewing in Houston, Squeeze and Twist IPA. This is a really nice little session ipa, and maybe the best brew I've had from No Label. From Clown Shoes, Baked Goods Hoppy Pales Ale. Tastes like a balanced ipa, which is fairly strong praise for a pale ale. And from 4 Hands Brewery in St. Louis, Incarnation IPA. Hoppy, fruity, nice balance--this is a very tasty beer. SR
  10. I did also cut and glue up a headstock cap of Osage Orange. SR
  11. While that was drying I started working on the body. I cleaned up the gluing side of the top. And then cleaned up the face side so I could see to locate the body in the sweet spot of the figure. The light reflects at crazy angles depending on where you are standing....this is an attempt to show the symmetry. It is still only visible at certain angles. SR
  12. After missing a weekend traveling, I got back in the saddle last weekend. I cut the headstock angle on the bandsaw and cleaned it up with the old plane as a sanding block. Next came the truss rod channel. Then I marked the fretboard location and the neck location and placed some finishing nails to keep the boeard in place during glue up. I did cut those nails down short, less than the thickness of the fretboard. And then glued them together using an old piece of counter top as a caul. SR

    JimF's First Build!

    Not at all! Looking good. SR
  14. It would have been cheaper to just give him his own key. A 130 lb. puppy is going to be sizeable when he gets his full growth. SR
