Very well done, Terry! She's gorgeous! Was this from a kit or scratch built? Very nice work on the rosette and unique pick guard. Where abouts in Oregon are you Terry? I have some family in the Medford/Rogue River area, in fact I bought a house in Rogue River this past September and plan to live there when I retire.

Anyway, very nice work on this one. Beautiful!

Thanks much for the kind words... It's a scratch built... can't afford the kits... Now that I've fairly well tooled up it's far less expensive to build from scratch. I live in Cottage Grove, about 20 miles or so south of Eugene.

Thanks for sharing.

Kevin,
are you carving your own necks? I find the biggest savings is in the neck. If you use a stacked block heel the materials cost about $25 - 40 depending on what material you use. Necks at the major suppliers are about $140+. Of course you may need an additional tool or two. Mostly I use a most of my carving is done with a coarse/fine round/flat Nicholson file.

I'm still practicing my carving technique and have not decided if the cost savings is worth the work effort yet.

Did you use pore filler on that? The way you can see the texture of the grains looks like how my dread is turning out with out any pore filler, just a sealer.

Dan... I haven't figured out that pore filling business yet. Besidea, my wife like the grain to see and touch :) One of these days I'll figure out how guys like Jeff do it!

Honestly, I think seeing the grain is a nice touch, especially on the satin finish I'm doing, but I'll try porefiller sometime.

Hey Terry, I use Robbie O'Brien's method of pore filling described here in one of his youtube videos:

Pore filling using drywall compound

I didn't use drywall compound but if it's good enough for Robbie it's certainly good enough for me. I may try it on my next one. I also applied a wash coat of shellac to the entire body before filling. Robbie just shows sealing the top and bindings prior to filling. And you do have to wipe off the excess quickly or you'll have lots of sanding to do :-(

I wanted to ask you about your unique guitar stand too. Did you build that? Looks pretty cool.
