Brand new here. Name is Steve. Been in construction/remodeling for 20+ years and just recently dove into the addiction that is woodworking. Made about 20 cutting boards for Xmas and now I’m hooked. Have been playing guitar for almost 35 years, so I have a feeling a lot of my projects may be music themed. Few pics of some of the beginner stuff I’ve done, but looking forward to one day being in the same league as most of you.

Steve, Nice work. Try uploading your shots to this site, easier to view them. Welcome to the clan. There are many really great people here who are always willing to give a hand if you need info. Keep up the good work and keep sharing. My posts are somewhat sporadic but I keep busy in the shop. This cold Penna. weather is a pain in the butt right now but spring is coming. Most of my work now consists of smaller items. I’m do not do much furniture at this point. Coming up on 82 shortly so age is a factor in working with large projects.

I’m not advanced enough to start building guitar bodies yet, but I’ve assembled many guitars over the years. Stewart McDonald has been my go to supplier for years. Thanks for the replies.

Latest project…..Tele with flame maple neck and Seymour Duncan Hot Rail pickups. Plays like a dream

I guess I should rephrase that…...........I’m not advanced enough to build bodies for use in an actual guitar. The response on that stool (especially from fellow musicians) has been tremendous. Going to build a few more. I like the fact that since the guitar won’t actually be used as a guitar, it allows me to mix woods without worrying about killing the tone. The above stool is maple and padauk.

May be an optical delusion, but do I see saw marks on the inside of the curve (on the guitar/stool seat)? A good way to get rid of those is with an oscillating spindle sander.

Otherwise, good looking work.
