Here's a wood that is a bit different. I bound my latest project, an EIR OM, with lacewood. I bought several 2x2x36 sticks of various woods off eBay, which are perfect for resawing into bindings and end grafts. I had never used lacewood before. Reminds me of quartersawn oak, but much more pronounced flecking. It splinters like crazy. I have been pulling slivers out of my hands ever since scraping and sanding down the bindings over the weekend. But I really like the look and orangish hues with the EIR.

I am building the guitar as a surprise gift for a friend out west. My goal is to keep the cost below $400 excluding case. But even though the material costs will be at the lower end, I still wanted the guitar to stand out. The lacewood really lights up and should look pretty cool around the fingerboard and headstock.

I like very much what you've done with this. Lacewood as a back and sides never really appealed to me, but as binding and end graft, WOW, it really adds a lot to your build.
Good work.

Ken, that is really sweet. You'll never see a guitar in a store that looks like that. Great look, great job, as always. How do you build them so fast??

Thanks Bob and Kevin. I don't build fast at all. My build log shows I started this one Feb 13. Should go faster from this point, though.

I'm a lacewood for binding and end caps too... One of our members here once said the call it Silky Oak in Australia and use for fire wood...

Hugh, really not much else special to see--A pretty basic EIR OM. The bindings are the most unique thing about this guitar. Top is lutz. My first time trying this particular spruce. Below are pictures of the top before I bound it and also the rosette before I glued the top on. I don't have pictures of the neck, but it is a pretty basic 3-piece mahogany job with a thing string of EIR running up the spine.

Tried something new this weekend--I bound a headstock! I know several others on this forum have done that before, but though I had wanted to, the tight radiuses of my headstock design left me with broken pieces of binding. I had a 'duh' moment a couple of weeks ago when I realized my 1/4" binding had enough height for me to cut the small tight pieces out of the face of the left over f/b binding. Not sure why I didn't think of that earlier. So yesterday I built this router jig to cut the channels on the binding headstock and later bound the macassar ebony headplate.

Ken,
That is down-right fancy. Good job. I don't see how the jig worked though.

Thanks Kevin, the binding ledge needs to be cut prior to installing the f/b. I set the headstock on the router table face down and run the headstock around the 1/4" router bit. The wood jig acts as a guide and provides for a channel the depth of the binding. Very simple. The hard part was mitering and gluing the binding!
