Seriously though, it's great to log back in to PG and read through the last 6 months of cool builds! In the interim, I've been building a lot, switched schools and job, and have been generally going nonstop. This year though, I'm going to make it a priority to take time and engage with people and communities that I care about, and I look forward to what 2018 has in store!

I've been playing with a really fun finish for my other current project, I'll post more details and pics on that one tomorrow.

Thank you so much! Thankfully, there wasn't any hurricane damage to speak of in my area, I'm just serially bad at keeping up with stuff like this :)

So, on to my other build of the moment. Same model as above, but with a fully bound katalox neck and ebony fretboard, mahogany body, and figured ash top with more binding. Here's a quick mockup:

The finish will be black dyed ash (no sandback) with metallic silver pore fill, like so:

I'm aiming to have the body sanded and ready for finish by Friday morning, and will take pics of the entire finish process.

How did you find the katalox to work with? I've got a katalox center lam in the neck I'm working on right now. I found it super hard, and fairly heavy and it appears to polish pretty well. It was a very deep dark brown when I bought it, but once cut the inside was lighter and purplish.
