Finally got around to making that guitar my brother wanted. My father passed away a month and a half ago, I would occasionally get together with my brothers and dad to cut firewood. I saved a few cookies from the last tree we cut down together and got inspired. It’s certainly not perfect but I’m happy with how it turned out for never making a guitar.
That is absolutely flawless, what are you talking about. What a beauty! The pattern, wow.
So awesome. A guitar is on my bucket list, but didn’t get to it yet.
Did you use the hardware from an old Fender?
It looks GREATon its own merits. I’m sure being made from wood cut down with your Dad increases its beauty to your family exponentially. Nice Work!
Yeah I had a pile of old parts laying around that got repurposed - my MPCNC isn’t large enough to make the neck, so possibly when I get around to making a lowrider I may venture further.
The plans came from Guitar Templates Archive | Electric Herald they have a pretty nice selection to choose from, I needed to modify them just a bit but was a good starting point.
That pith landed in the perfect spot. Nice work!
Thanks that was purely by accident. I had hoped to have it more centered. My feed rates were still setup for soft pine I was testing on. Red oak cutting end grain wants a much slower cut. The sudden workpiece adjustment required an quick stop and placement recalibration. Probably a smaller DOC and the speed would have been fine
Beautiful wood and craftsmanship. As a guitar player I admire it even more. May it bring good memories of your father ever time you see it. I know my best memories of my father are of him, my 3 brothers, and me working together.
