Other than an intro post, this is my first post. I built this lap steel a couple days ago. Don't know how to play steels, but man they are cool!



Here's a little video of me playing it with a spark plug socket as I don't have a bar yet.

Thanks James,

The fingerboards on those don't get touched, so the graphic there is just stenciled on to the bottom of the plexi fingerboard. I had an old silvertone come in for a new case, and I only had it for a day, so I didn't have time to take progress pics, I just put my head down and made it. These guitars are so simple, there's not a lot to the actual process.

Here's a picture of the Silvertone I was copying. The case it's sitting on is the one we made for it. I love these old lap steels.
