I'd probably break my neck at this point.
My boys get this one, but I'm game to make more.
Get youself access to a laser cutter. You'll be glad you did. The pickguard is my favorite part of this guitar. Or maybe it's the control plate.
This is the second in the reclaimed closet door series. (Two doors left=two more guitars.) I left the original 60 year old finish on the top of this one. I love the feel and the contrast with the refinished sides and back. A Mastery bridge and a pair of Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups are featured.
This is the one that I reach for first.
I wasn't about to let some 60 year old Douglas Fir doors get tossed into a dumpster. Check out the build process photos from Doug Fir, Again to see the raw materials. This axe has a rosewood neck and a single P-90. Tone for days.
I love Baltic Birch plywood.
Pair it with some chunky maple and now we're talking. This table seats four comfortably, eight if you're giving shoulder rides.
It's really a drink holder that you can also sit on.
And I think the law states that they must be built in pairs. Yes, there is a second one. Come over and we'll enjoy G&Ts in them.
There's that fancy plywood again.
Ever since making the first one, I've wondered about the feasability of an adult sized version.
The image scan is a little blurry but the memory is clear. It was an early summer day in 2002 when I pulled into a nondescript parking lot in Burlington, VT to deliver this guitar as a show of gratitude to my favorite guitarist. He sent me a very nice note of thanks.
The wood for the neck was harvested from an upright piano that was heading to the landfill. A most glorious sound was produced by the chainsaw hitting the cast iron soundboard.
