First of all I have to say That I had no previous experience in wood working at all.

But I'm finishing the routing process of my first body, I made some fixable mistakes and I feel very proud of my unexperienced results so far.

well, I'm going to play devils advocate, and say, the work looks fine, but dude, paint it a solid color LOL!!!

I don't like the cedar top at all personally, but then, I don't like figured tops either with the odd exception. It's nothing against your work though, that looks class, I just think the veneer looks to much like furniture or something. I say, seal that sucker, and paint it LOL!!!!

however, it's only my opinion :D
