    Carving a top for the first time, need help

    I would recommend making topographical templates for the topcarve. I've also used an angle grinder with a sanding disc with success. That said, it's easy to screw something up, and those pieces of maple look expensive! Better off taking your time with the top carve imo.

    That's just my standard headstock shape I use on every build. I see what you're saying. Maybe it's time to come up with something else.

    I've had this spanish cedar body laying around for a couple of years. I've been building two guitars, and made three necks, so I dug out this body today. It was just a shape that I came up with, and decided to go a different direction. Anyways it was just a flat body. I did some contour...

    Is anyone else sensitive to rosewood dust?

    I seem to have developed an allergic reaction to rosewood. Everytime I work with it my face and neck become red and blotchy. My eyes look like I've been pepper sprayed. It hasn't stopped me. Is there anything I can do about it? I've read that brw is a sensitizer. So I assume it will only get...

    These fretboard blanks been on eBay for months

    There is a lot of stump wood that is pretty nice. I'm talking about the newer growth that has a lot of sapwood in it. Still nice, but not ideal.
