  1. Thanks Mistermikev!! When I started this build a couple of years ago there was no posts on YouTube or interwebs on pencil guitars. The few turning pencils into bowls videos I could find one guy super glued each one together then covered with resin. My thought at the time is that might just work to make a drop top. Well it did!!
  2. Thanks Scott!!! I am too looking forward to seeing it finished!
  3. Thanks! Do you mean the pencil? I seen some videos on YouTube on turning colored pencils and loved the look. I thought that would look cool as a top. Working with the pencils has been a challenge but been able to overcome those challenges with a really cool result.
  4. Hey Guys Hope everyone has been doing well. I have been chugging along. Here is my progress. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
  5. I got a little more done. Cut the fretboard on the band saw and planed it all up on my favorite new tool!! The 13 inch dewalt planer is amazing!! I only had it for a couple of months now. I also got the truss rod channel routed out. I still have a little more clean up to do.
  6. Thanks guys!! I have the angle marked out and think it is correct. I drew it up using crimson guitars neck break angle method. I did a practice run on the truss rod. What do you all think before I do it on the neck?
  7. Also what is the best way to cut the neck break angle on a neck through?
  8. Thanks it is purple heart. The body and fretboard will also be purple hart. The top will be colored pencils. I have the blank ready and here it is.
  9. Hey guys Its been a long time since I posted on this forum. I have been working on this build off and on for the past 2 years and have not made much progress. Been busy with life, work , family, getting my first Harley, My wife finishing 2 Masters degrees, and so on. The past 2 years been working on a new hotel and that just opened. Here is the site. https://www.blackberrymountain.com/ My work has exploded in the beer world pick some up. Here is the brewery site. https://blackberryfarmbrewery.com/ Back to the build! I have had my ups and downs with this and not going through all the bad and good, but glad I can move on and continue the build. Here are some pics and not in order sorry.
  10. Hey guys it's been a while!! I am going to try and start posting more on beer and builds!! Hope everyone has been good. Here is what I am drinking tonight. I stopped at my work's tap room and picked up some Blackberry Farm Brewery Screening Bock. It is really good!!! If anyone comes across BFB beer in there area definitely pick some up!!
  11. Lets Make some sawdust!!! Cutting the Maple Brazilian Ebony for the fretboard. Purple Hart Testing it out. Center is Black walnut, next flame maple, followed with the purple hart, and maple again. I am going to have to go to a friends shop to have it all planned. That is all I have gotten done today. Hope I can get everything planned this coming week and glued next weekend. Cheers!!
  12. Like is said in a post, I was working on my shop. I am almost done. I got some green shelving for the great price of free from a friend. When I was starting to organize everything my wife said why dont you put all the big tools in the middle so it gives you more room. Which was surprising. I am still not done but its really looking like a proper shop and really has came a long way. I still have more to do, but I thought I would share and also will start on the templates this weekend.
