What To Build?

Recommended Posts

My family is replacing the kitchen and dining room tables. The kitchen table is 1 3/4" Oak and the dining room table is 1 1/4" thick and made up of a bunch of maple boards laminated together, some of which have some nice flame to them. Obviously I need to build some guitars out of these. There's probably enough oak for about 6 guitar body's, maybe 7. I figure I can try some different variations on chambering with the oak to reduce the weight.

I definately want to try making a hollowbody LP style guitar with the oak as a base and the maple cap, but beyond that I'm entirely open to ideas. This seems like a great chance to try a whole bunch of unique or new design ideas and get some practice without wasting a ton of money on materials - what else would you build?
