A gift for a friend, body is Hawaiian koa (imported by – ME) with a wenge neck and an ebony sound-hole. I tried several times to bend wood to fill the space around the ebony, but failed several times. Sanded to 400-grit and then finished with mineral oil and beeswax. A fun project!

Nice looking and a unique take on the cutting board. I like it!

Nice design. My wife has been wanting me to do something like this. Especially when we go to Bluegrass Festivals. I don’t have any Koa though. Her cousin designs for Taylor and she has a baby Taylor guitar. I guess I could take it apart for a template!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Beautiful!...Great design! But, I would have a hard time letting anyone cut cheese on that piece of koa.

Wow, really clever idea. Can you put something next to it so we can see the scale?

Seems like you have more to go… No bridge, nut, tuning machines, strings etc… Seriously though, that is a very cool idea… Well executed too!

SPalm had the guitar string. LOL but someone might be able to figure out an approach

All the same nicely done, I’d put two knives by it, one to cut the cheese, or to cut the cutter, I shudder at the thought of knife marks and nicks.

Have your say...
