this project is so cool. The oak is amazing and love the headstock. The Martin arts & crafts special edition guitar in oak was one of the reasons I got into building as my our house and furniture is of same style. Your guitar would look so great in my living room! :D Thanks for sharing.


Arts & Crafts, Gustav Stickley, with a touch of George Nakashima at our place - at least that's the goal.

Hey, you never know, Wormy might need a home eventually! Let me see how it sounds first, lol.

That picture makes the sides look much redder than the back...there's not that much difference.

Wipe of dark stain to highlight the grain, then sand it back.
Touch of amber shellac, then clear.

Bit of a pain in the butt to get all the surfaces to match when you sand something back, which is why it’s not a recommended practice.

I really liked the look though.
