The pinstriping channels are almost done:
The second one will just have two strips running down the side of the central teak strip. The glue joins were just done far too well I'm afraid

This thread is most surely going to be stalked thoroughly. Can I ask you a question Whoomit? Where do you get your inlay materials?

If you mean the fret dots that I used on the last Tele then they were from eBay. Don't think I've bought any other inlay material to be honest with you. When the time comes to buy some it will probably be eBay as well, or some marquetry website.

Good place for inlay material: http://www.rescuepearl.com/

The woman that runs that store is really nice and reliable, and her pearl is pretty awesome, especially for what you pay. I've gone through her and I know many others who buy from her all of the time, and nobody has any complaints.

That looks fantastic, especially since I'm going down the reclaimed timber route. Thanks man

Well the veneer that I've been waiting on arrived today. Unfortunately it arrived right as I was leaving for work... I should get the necks glued up tomorrow though

Good show old chap. It's also good to see that it lives in a workshop, which is reassuring

Well I actually took it out there to gargle. I've got a sore throat

Pinstriping channels done:


The only thing I've got to decide now is what do I do with this?



You can see that there's two cracks stemming from the top pinstripe on this body. I don't know whether I should:
a) Leave it like that
b) Finish the pinstripe and leave the cracks
c) Finish the pinstripe and try to hide the cracks.

I was thinking a), but what does everyone else think?

I have a sore throat too! But I don't have whiskey.

And I suggest you just do insane belly carves all over the damn place.

You could possibly carve a forearm cut/curve to hide that crack in the last picture.

I do, but I haven't remembered to gargle it a single time!

That's a possibility, I don't really want to go through the teak on the front though.

Looks like a great site, but my bank statement came in today

Started gluing up the necks:

I'm doing them in stages. The 3-piece neck is being done in 2 stages, and the 5-piece will be done in 3 or 4 stages. The reason being the quantity of veneers going between the planks. Can't wait to post pictures of the planed neck blanks. Hopefully that'll be tomorrow morning, otherwise it won't be until Monday as I'm going down South!

Actually just finished gluing and clamping the 3-piece neck. The 5-piece is now half way there

Most understandable.
