In my quest to find wood for a first guitar that is either local or free, I dug through my dad’s wood stacks. Found a big walnut plank from a tree on his property with some sections that were close to quarter sawn. Cut a couple pieces for backs and sides.
I have choice pieces that I hope are enough to make 2 nice bookmatched back and side sets. Also have second tier pieces to make the same amount. Will probably rip those down first for practice and possibly use the sides to experiment with bending.
I have them stickered in the room where I made some wood storage. Everything but the nice spruce tops and mahogany backs are in there. That stuff is stickered in the shop cabinet.
Still need some more items. But need to work out stabilizing the relative humidity pretty quickly.
