  1. don´t hesitate - on to sanding starting with 80gr ah... that wood begins to reveil some of it´s pure awesomeness that first time ever carving/sanding went better than expected Yeah... that upper Horn is already a lot better like that... i cannot go all wild there cause it is gonna save the puprose of presenting the strapholder. If anybody with design talent (which i harshly lack) has a great idea how that hornend will look best - please shout! those will be handy, i´m happy they made it to my mailbox quickly Sanding 180
  2. The journey continues... Memo to myself: Draw the lines to carve to before carving, take your time with that and think twice, do that completely it will save you hours if you do the carving once only obviously i went back to start and finished (or continued my final carving lines) for front and side at least Yay - new tools extremely needed - at least the carved scraper and here it goes scrapers are tools from the gods because... removes a lot of material in every pass, leaves a very smooth surface already and no n
  3. So... outside again... let´s get carving II Always keep looking for the perfect unexpected spot in your garden I think i really should move to sanding on the front so.. lets pay attention to that back my hands are hurting yes, that´s somehow how i thought it should be carved now... just carving over the backplate edges i´m happy an to the sander.... Custom dust extraction Owwwwww.... that will take forever... and i mean a lot of hours.... the carving leaves quite deep scrat
  4. fitting after a lot of filing and sanding..... yay a custom backplate
  5. I think what most guitars lack is a comfy carved back, no wonder - i think that just has to be done by hand, makes sanding harder, will add like a good 100€ to the price of a normal guitar which is unacceptable for the greater part, or maybe just noone wants that?!... ... plus it denies a normal flat backplate, so i suppose it´s time to create one BEFORE i carve there.... what???? however.... for the form of the backplate... i first wanted to do a Skull or amthg like that, but then i decided i wanted to make it not from the same wood as the body but from a leftover f
  6. As i decided to go the stony way whenever possible, but for the real reason i wanted to do the things that you don´t get on a machine made guitar - the decision to carve was obvious. i love my garden and my tools workbench from hell, clamping ... no comment that´s better (moved there after 20mins) thats fun but i don´t really know how much to do... or better when to stop... thats already so much better, and that wood is performing way better than i ever imagined getting there aka stop! Access should be perfect to all

  13. What a week... That ´tallica Album alone deserves multiple plays in any path, phhh ... but it´s only week 1 of 4 there, so we should manage that. And, that promising GD track comes in multitrack version, yay - i encourage everyone to dl those and experience how scary it feels all alone out there. Rock, Rod. And have a helluva week.
