Hello all! This is my first post. I’ve come across lumberjocks so many times and have seen so much good work that I wanted to share a little bit of what I do and the woods I like to work with. Cheers!
Woods in order of pictures:
Myrtle wood / Black lamination / Mahogany back / Burled Wenge fretboard
African Padauk / Mahogany back / Pau Ferro fretboard
The third guitar is the first guitar I even built at school. The top is Canadian Black Walnut and the back is African Mahogany with a Gaboon Ebony fretboard. Moon and Clouds inlay. This guitar as well as my second guitar (my own design) that I built at school were stolen from me 1 month after I got back from school.
Birdseye Zebrawood / Swamp Ash
Flamed Mahogany / Burled Cocobolo
The last picture is showing the combination of woods that will go in the guitar:
Asian Black and White ebony / Pau Ferro / Flamed Mahogany / Figured Redwood / black lam
I got really lucky with the Flamed Mahogany. I was working at a mill shop and one day I found 3 8/4 boards 14” wide and 16 feet long and were labeled “Genuine Mahogany” The lumber yard we got them from mislabeled them as Genuine Mahogany although they were suppose to be for high end veneers. I got two boards that were flamed over the entirety of the faces and edges.
Hope you guys like what you see!
