EricWilson Posted July 26, 2004 Report Share Posted July 26, 2004 OK I have further plunged myself into bass making by buying woods (keep in mind i am a starving artist so I work as i get money) I went to Home Depot and bought some poplar. I bought it cuz I happen to like that moldy green hue it has...and it was dirt cheap. So I get home and I'm all like...yea I got wood and clamps and glue and junk, and then I realized that it was prolly not kiln-dried or perfectly flat. I also realized that they were only 3/4 of an inch thick but were around 2 to 3 feet long i don't remember the exact measurements. My questions are: ~Should I worry about it not being kiln dried? If so, how do I remedy/get around this problem for little or no money? ~Should I worry about it not being perfectly flat, or will glueing clamping and lots of time remedy this? ~Given that they are only 3/4's on an inch thick, but long as hell, how many should I glue together to achieve the desired thickness? I was thinking two but maybe three would be better. Thank you all for reading this and answering this. Once I start building, I'll post pictrues and stuff. ~Eric~ SHAMELESS SELFPROMOTION: go visit my bands site: www.purevolume.com/leftofcool Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
