    Chris G Crazy Art Teleish Build

    I'm liking this a lot, am I right in thinking that's pencils and resin, can't wait to see that finished

    opinions on Tali wood

    I've not used padauk so I can't make a comparison but the sawdust is not a bright orange and I think my second picture doesn't show the colour accurately. It's finally stooped raining here so managed to take a pic outside. A pic of my current project, the ring has a few coats of Danish oil and the other is straight off of my CNC at least on my laptop the colour is more accurate.

    I must admit that I haven't done an extensive search but there is not a lot of information about this wood on line but I did find that one thank you.

    opinions on Tali wood

    That is true Scott luckily I've been on this forum for quite a while and have picked up a lot of ideas and techniques from some of you guys that have a lot more experience than I have.
  5. Guys when I was at my usual hardwood supplier I came across some Tali wood, I'd never heard of this before and got some for a non guitar related project but was wondering if this would be suitable for using for a guitar.it is quite heavy and I'm told is very stable and although tough on tools it does machine well

    Not Quite A Tele...

    I think I've said this before but I'm going to say again anyway, I just love your carving and that headstock is just amazing.

    First full build from scratch

    I don't care what people say, this old dog has learnt a lot of new tricks since I retired, You are never to old to learn you just need the right attitude. Forums like this really helped me to get inspired not only to make guitars but to make a whole bunch of other wood related stuff. My latest toy is an Inventible's X carve cnc, which has got the biggest learning curve of all the tools in my workshop but hey learning is fun and it helps keep that old grey matter alive.
  10. I must say @ScottR I just love your carving, I have tried it in the past but found it to be a steep learning curve, have you a natural talent or is it just years of practice.or perhaps some other secret.
  11. What you actually show Andy is how you get incredible results, many people approach building in different ways but your way obviously works well for you, another stunning result, I'm not surprised that Tim is pleased with it.

    First Build - The "Nozcaster"

    Congrats @Norris a well deserved win, I enjoyed all 23 pages of your build, I take it the next one is going to be a rush build maybe 18 months or so:)
  14. Thanks for your answers guys, here are a couple of pictures after a quick run through my planer. Prostheta I made a batch of 3d end grain cutting boards for Christmas presents for some of my family, unfortunately all my pictures are on my camera which is at my daughters, on a good day its a 2 1/2 hour drive to retrieve it and my last trip it was 5 1/2 hours of sheer misery so I'm not inclined to make a special trip for my camera.
  15. Guys I was just wondering if sycamore was any good for neck or bodies, I have a fair bit left over from a non guitar related project and would like to know if its worth keeping for a future guitar build.
