I have been browsing around here for a while and wanted to finally post some of my builds.
I normally build smaller things, but I saw one on lumberjocks and wanted to give it a go.
The first one is a 3 String Yellow fir with a Red Oak fret board and Red Oak Nut/Bridge.
The second is a 3 String Red Oak with Curly Maple Nut/Bridge.
The third is 4 String Curly Maple with a two Tone Black Walnut fret board and Walnut Nut/ Maple and Walnut Bridge (it sold before I finished it).
I am enjoying building them so much that I have 4 more waiting to be finished.
I couldn't have built them without the help found from browsing these forums though, so thanks to to all who have posted tips and helpful tidbits, and hopefully I can post some as well.
I really like your neck and headstock work.
Wow! Those are beautiful! I hope my builds can get to that level someday.
Thanks for the compliments,
I have been building things like bed side lamps and chess sets, so CBGs are much larger, but I can carry over alot of the intricacies I normally use.
I plan on documenting my next build and posting it on here.
