  1. So, the topic of veneering carved tops comes up more and more and more these days. I've consistently said "It's not my technique to teach." Well, it's finally come up enough times that I contacted the person who did teach it to me and asked if he'd mind if I just went ahead and did a video on it. He said to go ahead and do it. In case you're not familiar with what I'm talking about: This is actually a spruce carved top I built with just the quilted maple being veneered on: Or for instance I couldn't find high enough figure birdseye without getting heart wood color in bookmatched carved top thicknesses, so this is just plain maple with birdseye veneer: However, here's the predicament I'm in. I usually make the videos as I go through the process on a build I'm working. But right now I have a TON of stuff on my plate. New home owner, have about the next 1.5-2 years worth of projects already started (none of which I've planned a veneered top on). So basically, I'd be putting aside all this stuff to carve and veneer a top that I don't even have a project for. Considering I'm very "theme" oriented on my projects, chances are whatever I carve and veneer here will sit for a long time, or just never get used. This is kind of wasteful. I have always said that my video tutorials would be free, and I have no intention of changing that policy; I will do this video, and it will be free. However, if you've enjoyed my videos in the past, would like to help support the creation of this one by sending something; a carved top blank to replace the one I'll have to use, a fretboard, or a cool drop top; whatever, it would be much appreciated. Once again, I will make this video regardless of any donation, it will be free for everyone when done, you don't have to do anything. But if you would like to, it'd be nice to at least offset the cost of doing this video since it's just not something I have time for or planned to do on any build any time soon. If you'd like to donate to the cause, please drop me a PM and I can give you my address. If not, no worries. Chris
