Here is the Regal. After I repaired the cracks, I felt the finish on the top needed sanded to help hide the repair and new finish. I sanded off the painted white border that was around the hole and…Continue

Pics of an acoustic that the peg head broke years back so I stripped off the fretboard, strap nuts, and tuners. Now I am thinking of doing something with the body and I would like to either graft a…Continue

You have some great builds Lonman. Love those cases too. Been looking at your slide show.

Hello Lonman, since you do well to use no chipwood. Plywood boards (I do not know the word for it) are much more stable and lighter. They are available in our birch beech poplar and maple. I had chosen birch. Yours Schorsch
Hi Lonman, sorry iforgot it because I was in hurry. Look at my side, I added two pics of the case. Greetings
Thank you for your compliment! Yeah, can't miss the 12th fret, it's for sure! :))
thanks lonman ,the chess board build you did there is very cool .
I saw your question about techniques for photos. I've had good luck with water slide paper. This essentially lets you make a decal. You find your image, maybe edit the photo, then print onto the water slide paper. It comes in both laser and ink jet varieties. You then spray it with clear acrylic. When it's dry, soak the paper in water briefly, then slide the picture off the backing onto the box.

Will use walnut for a nut, not sure what for a bridge. piezo pick up. Will not go thru n thru. Missed by about 1.5 inches. Pics…Continue
