What do you expect for the results?
Really I just wanted the color shift. Because it wasn't done in a vacuum oven, I don't expect the extra stability or anything, I just wanted it darker. I love the look of roasted birdseye and figured I would roast the neck wood also so that they more closely matched. The idea was to get a little more "vintage" of a look without tinted lacquer or anything, especially since I may go with Tru oil or something on the neck.
Can't you just use some brown dye?
at this time I am polishing from this:
It looks strange like an opaque object that looks unpainted to become shiny, shiny and deep.
I could, but part of my whole purpose in building guitars is to try new stuff. Each build has to have at least a few new techniques or components. So this one got some roasted maple

New project now, two thin lines made out of mostly the same timber, they will get clear pickguards and he wants them like this one, but not dead on
But with zebra pickups and a hardtail
been busy the last few days. Making 2 Strat bodies, one traditional, one with a bookmatched quilted drop top, direct mounted pickups and rear control routing.
Obviously the quilted Strat top hasnt been glued or routed yet. Its just sitting on top of the body. Also jointed the top for my future "22 Magnum" from the same piece of wood as the Strat top.
Yet another Qrazy Qwilt!
Back glued on one of the teles
Tomorrow I will get the other back on and hopefully get the underside of the top levelled off at least
