My first build so far!

Couple of pics of my build so far ... It is in a very rough state of course. Not yet completely smoothed the edges or started binding and purfling but so far I am pleased with the way it is looking. Especially for my first attempt and from scratch. I'll keep you posted!

The bottom pic makes it look seriously out of shape but I can assure you it is symetrical.

Oh yeah Paul. Great job so far. And it looks like you already have a good fit on the neck to body join. Thanks for sharing.

Paul, you are braver than most, bending a cut-a-way by hand on #1. Way to go!

lol Darren now I know it was brave but trust me at the time I knew no different ... it was stupidity. It was hard but fortunately IRW bends quite nicely and I really took my time ... couple of hours i think. Thanks anyway.

Looks great so far, and I am equally impressed with the cutaway.
