verhoevenc Posted September 30, 2005 Report Share Posted September 30, 2005 (edited) I was wondering about something. After seeing dougs hopefully soon to be guitar of the month it got me with THIS idea. I want to get a 1" top that's made from a 5/8" of buckeye burl laminated with a 3/8" purpleheart piece. That way when you carve down, towards the edge the wood changes but the carve stays constant, something like one of my favourite builders do (Kritz) here: But like I said with buckeye as the top of the laminate and the part exposed by the carve being the purpleheart. In a thread earlier MATT mentioned that this is quite a daunting task to get done correctly (in a thread of a different topic though... but it still got me thinking). Anyone wanna give some pointers? Tips? Warnings? Discuss on this idea? Chris Edited September 30, 2005 by verhoevenc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
