I had a request to make a guitar shaped cutting board for a friend’s granddaughter. She had seen the fiddle I gave to another friend’s daughter. She is in college and she can take this back to school. My friend wanted some ‘wow’ wood. I thought some curly Maple and Walnut would work. The body is about 14” x 12” with the whole neck being 14”. It is about 1 1/4” thick. Mineral oil and wax for a finish.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Looks like a guitar to me. I really like the striped maple! That really sets it off!

But I could never use that as a cutting board! I would have to hang that on the wall of the kitchen.

Robert, this is way too much fun. Nice work. I like the strings and the selection of wood. So what goes on the neck?

thanks everyone.
Big Al, my wife asked if I was going to put tuning pegs on it. Dennis wanted a headstock. I don’t play an instrument so I did a simple handle/neck.
Natalie, Maybe I should do a hole to hang it on the wall.
Ira, the Maple came from Ridgewoods or Northwoods in Washington. I was wondering if that is where you got your ‘seconds’.
I live in a small community. The girl who will receive this board is the daughter of the doctor who put 6 stitches in my thumb after I nicked it on the table saw a year ago.

Sweet!! Too pretty to chop veggies on though. You should make a mini guitar stand for the counter top now to show it off! That would be cool!
