  1. Yes. I did two layers of Z-Poxy as a prep for finishing (that I intend to sand the most of). Can the bubles be a result of the heat? (the room is very hot during the day) or maybe the wood is not dry enough?
  2. Hi guys, one small question, After putting two layers of Epoxy I've let the boxy rest for about a week. I've noticed that the finish has some kind of bubble \ blows in the finish, what can be the cause of it? Thanks !
  3. Thanks ! I tend to agree, Altough I have an avarage sized Honduras Mahogany body blank here which is havier than my Korina body. Well........that Korina body does have those big ol' holes in it. Which look nice. I've found Honduras Mahogany can vary widely in weight. My Korina is in the ballpark with the Afican Mahogany I've worked with if not just a little lighter, so I guess it falls in line with what Wes has found. I don't know why I expected it to be closer in weight to the Spanish cedar I just used which was by far the lightest body wood I've used so to this point. SR T

  5. Mmm I find the korina much lighter than my previous build which was a maple-purple heart lamination. I also find it lighter than mahogany... In terms of comparison to other tonewoods I can't really say...
  6. Yeap pretty cheap too. Near Kiryat Bialik..
  7. Cutting the body close to the size: Shape is cut close to the template. Shape is robo-sanded to precise match! Rough routing the holes: A layer of Z-Poxy to prevernt router tearouts when rounding: Cutting corners : All done: Sanding to 240 Grit: Starting to do some pore filling: 1st layer of Z-Poxy done: I'm now waiting for templates to be sent by Ronny from guitarbuildingtemplates in order to resume working.
  8. Hi all, This is my first post here. I hope you like it. First let me itroduce myself, my name is Gil, 26, I'm working fulltime in Philips healthcare and I'm an amateur builder from Israel. So this was my first project: Now I'm starting my second.... Korina body, with a laminted korina - maple neck. The shape would be a modified explorer. This is what I've done so far: Gluing the body blanks: Laminating for the neck:
  9. Hi guys, I have recieved the new floyd rose block !!! It's a match ! I've replaced the usual 42 mm stock block with a Fat Brass Block made by Floyd Rose that is meant for the OFR.
  10. Stewmac were really fast to respond but they said they did not have an aswer but the fact that the schaller can have the block replaced.
  11. Hi guys, I have bought the Schaller FR tremolo from stewmac which comes with a 42mm block. I would like to change the block in order for it to be used as a recessed FR. Have you tried to do that ? Will the Original Floyd Rose upgrade blocks fit my tremolo (I know schaller have been making the OFR as well) ? If so, presuming I want the 32 mm block, which one would you use, the regular brass one or the "fat Brass" one? Thanks !
  12. Are there any rules regarding the angle ? the width of the piece?
  13. Hi Guys, Quick question. I noticed some of the guys here build neck in a method I have not seen before. Which is compiled of some kind of angled lamination that creates a decoration on the neck. like this amazing instrument: Can you please tell me how is it called and maybe help with a tutorial? Thanks !
