Alright, here's our finish attempt. Added red analine dye and sanded it back with 400.  Added amber after. Didn't like the color on the center stripe so I sanded that back to keep it natural.  Ad

Got the front about semigloss.  I may keep it there.  If not I'll hit it with the buffing wheel in a month. Still quite a few touch ups around the pickguard, controls, and a corner.  Still workin

Just needs to be hooked up and set up Finding a place with his brother.

This is kind of an out there idea.  What do you guys think of having a multi spieces control cover?  I for sure don't want it the same.   It's either that or just wenge.  Wenge would match but would the multi piece still be in the same realm of the design?  You'll see the laminated neck as well.

I may just make both.  If it doesnt work on this one I know itll work on a white version later.

There's an unspoken rule of thumb not to use more than three species in one guitar. Contrasting veneers used for outlining/separating  adjacent pieces don't count to that number, nor does the fretboard.

Rules can and have to be doubted and contradicted to enable creativity and inventions.

That said, to me that very example looks like a poorly organized samples of a wood vendor. Definitely not matching with the elegance you've built into Osprey. But that's just my opinion.

So about 30 min into it I nicked myself and my 6 yr old son brought me a bandaid.  Then he said I needed a cofee break and got me a cup.  Then he said i should take a break and watch a show with him.  Guess what it is. I'll be back in about an hour lol

Update.  Really soft carve.  I did bring it in all the way to the side of the pickups but I want to keep the carve simple and rounded.  I'll finish it when I get the binding in.  I'll do the fine sanding phase after the filler & before the primer.  Start hanging him next to his brother.

Used the stewmac laminate jig to make my binding thicker than normal to match the design.   Only like 30 bucs.  Oh also got a buffer wheel, and a bunch of wood cam clamps at an estate sale for 125 bucs.  Really great deals out there if you look
