Thumbs up for reclaiming
The cleaned up wood looks pretty good to me Taff - how long before your family realise you are converting the whole house into guitars? :0)
That's the acme of homemade right there
Ha, ha, and that's just the half of it.
Looks like I posted this in the wrong spot. I meant it for what's on your workbench section.
I used cedar fence plank before. I had to dry it in the oven first and make sure it didn't have any creosote in it. It ended up being very soft. Especially since I thinned the top and back for better acoustics. Had to use a lot of inner bracing to keep it all straight, so watch out for that.
I love using reclaimed products for gits.
