The Cocobolo dred I've been building since Jan. is almost finished.
The next project will be started soon. It will be a Macuaba cutaway dred with bloodwood binding. The wood is a sort of tan/blonde color with wild pinkish/red grain. When wet it is striking. Here are a couple of pictures of the wood. It is quite unique, but has a wonderful tap tone. It is dense and medium heavy in weight. It should make a nice sounding guitar. I got the board in a trade and had LMI resaw it into two B & S sets. Ken Hundley has the other set, and has already started his build with it.
So I just wanted to give you a peek of what I'll be doing next.

I love it! Looking forward to seeing how it progresses, especially with that slab, er, I mean, neck.

Martin,
It was pretty intimidating at first to start my first neck from scratch. That one was a scarf joint headstock and stacked heel. The second one was one piece....the other blank like the one you see here cut from the same block. This was a little less intimidating. Now as I face making one again, that feeling is still there, but I do have a pretty good idea what to do now so I am more comfortable doing it. It is one of those things that you just have to study on, and then jump in and do it.
So when do you make your first neck?

Kevin, my hat is off to ya. imo, you aren't a guitar maker until you start doing what you're doing right there.

I've currently got a martin mahogany billet for my #3, that I'll have to cut the tenon out of, and then shape the back, which is challenge enough for me.

I've got a laminated cherry piece that I want to make a scratch neck for another one for me, someday, probably cedar top, and walnut b&s. maybe this winter.

Now Ken, I don't want to start second, and finish first, so you need to get moving on that guitar. Can you put up a picture of where it is at right now? I'd like to see it.

Zootman,
You are the wood guy, so maybe you can verify what kind of wood this is. When I obtained it I was told it is Macacuaba. I've been told it looks a bit like Bubinga. What do you think?

Should be a fun one Kevin. The bloodwood bindings will look great. I am not familiar with Macacuaba, but it does look like bubinga. What are you using for purflings?

My EIR OM is pretty much done but for pore filling and spraying. I have a claro walnut billet I am resawing for another FB-185, and I also picked up some spalted mango that I will be turned into a small jumbo of some sorts. I plan to build both at the same time with the hopes of having each done by Christmas.

When do we see pics of your coco dred?

Ken,
Wow Ken you just keep cranking them out!! The next one after the "Maca" will be a claro walnut OM.....the wood has been patiently waiting to become a guitar for almost 2 years!

My plan is to have it strung up by the end of the day, the 4th of July. Then I'll take some pics, so hopefully maybe next Tuesday night I'll post.
It is looking pretty good. I wanted a perfect finish, and I came out far from that, but it be fine. When I post the pics, I'll also post some questions regarding finishing........I still have a lot to learn.

You know, Kev, I was wondering about what type of wood it was too....I recall reading somewhere, maybe LMI, that maca had more browns and carmels, where this is all reds and golds. Also, when you cut and sand, it smells like coconut. Interesting.....

I have the rim completed, the top braced and carved, and the back braced. I'll get pics up one of these days, my pc just took a dump...thats where all my web stuff is.

Ah, so what I really should use for the binding is LIME wood! Did I just date myself?
