    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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:)
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    First Build - The "Nozcaster"

    It's been a long time coming but wow was she worth the wait, she is a beaut Norris. I have loved this thread and I looked forward to each instalment. I have said this before and I'll say it again, the builds I enjoy the most are some of the builds of the non professional ( I refuse to use the term amateur) and this build is defiantly my favourite.. To me that doesn't look like a first build but looks like the build of a veteran with several guitar under his belt. Not only has this thread inspired me to build a guitar but to make many other wood related projects and now spend many hours of my retirement in my workshop.
  12. Hi Jack love your story and thanks for sharing, we are both from the same era although you have a couple of years on me, Like you I am not a player but love music and Hank and the shadows really got me interested in guitars. I was given my 1st guitar when I was ten, a really crappy acoustic one but I never did learn to play very well, I didn't get a Strat until I made a clone a while ago and although my daughter and brother in law both can make it sound really good I still can't play. I do try to play it but mostly I listen to music while I spend lots of time in my workshop making all kinds of shit and of course I have some of the shadows tunes on my play list.
  13. Just got back after a few days away so just caught up with this, wow that's what I call a result, That's a beauty Scott well done, really enjoyed following this build.

    BEER! What's in your fridge?

    Just opeded this 5l keg that my youngest gave to me for fathers day, apparently I've got to drink it in the next 3 days, wouldn't have been an issue when I was a young man but a bit out of practice these day, oh well life is a bitch.
