It's going to be one of my special Apaches, once I get the painting I've got going on over with.

It's 1.9 inches thick, about 16 wide and 22 long. It's big. And it's light for being so big.

Can't start it for a while. But these pieces are so very rare, you have to grab them as availability permits.

I showed it to my customer, and he said "I have to have it"'.

Well okay!

Phew; save every remnant out of that one.
Chunk of wood doesn't normally leave me without words; but holy smokes.
actually, I have a block that came out of this that I'm making into a bookmatched flame headstock overlay.

But I have plenty of scrap suitable for things like pen blanks.

@John Canfield , do you want a scrap of this? I know you make pens.

Genuine Honduran mahogany that's flamed like this..

...doesn't grow on trees.

hahahahaaa.

I’d love any scraps you want to send my way!

Fresh coffee here.

Wooo- is good.

We get hail here about once every six years.
It can be up to the size of a B-B.
I've seen pea-sized, but that's just blended in with the B-Bs.

I see that mahogany as a custom 1900's repro school desk-top.
Wouldn't that be cool?
With the cast iron and all?
Display piece?
Keep stuff in it?
Ink well?

Might be time for a new guitar soon. Probably another DSG. Top 5 List:

1) 335 Style
2) Bound Tele to match the DSG Crotchcaster
3) Bound Tele in Lake Placid Blue or Sherwood Green
4) Korina V or Explorer
5) TV Yellow Junior

Or just something insane

Thats a nice piece! You ever work with Korina Dave?

I love this too. I saw a line of these guitars in Nashville from a local guy, they were for sale at Carters

View attachment 531625

Yes, I've got a korina semi-hollow with maple top I'm doing.

Korina cuts like a dream. Trouble is, most fellas want the classic "korina" (white limba) totally clear. Hard to get ahold of. Black limba is much easier to find, so is white limba with figure marks.

<cracks knuckles>

ooh! a stirring in my loins..

Man, that's hard to chose from. Nice list!


Bound Teles, piece o' cake.

I'm in the process of spraying CerebralGasket's TV yellow SG, I'll post pics when suitable. You'll see how we do TV yellow.

I've got a "black beauty" custom Explorer in the works for Rich (CB91710).

So Dig this: we just completed our 2nd week of in-person learning.

Newspaper broke a story last night: students/parents of one of the high schools had an unauthorized prom last week (I think it was last week) and they got caught, SO, they're shut down 10 days and back to remote learning for those 10 days :facepalm: Sports for them is cancelled (sports was the real "unspoken" reason for the rush back to in-person).

Turns out at least 2 other high schools (including mine) did the same thing, so there's a pretty good chance that we're gonna be returning to remote for 10 days, perhaps as early as Monday. Word is, governor is PISSED and may want to make an example(s) for the rest of the state.

Seniors MAY even be denied walking at graduation. Legally, walking is a privilege, and they do not have a right to walk; receive their diplomas, YES, but walking, nopers.
