Whats next here?

Well got my three backs down to thickness, or pretty close.  I may work the cherry one a bit more.  Just resting on the sides for a bit of inspiration.

3 Gibson OOs

Either its my poor scraping job, or I may see a bit of figure in that cherry back.  Hard to see in photos but spots shine in certain light, just a bit.

Guitar 5- Cherry back

What to do next?  I have some neck blanks glued up and can work on those.  Just got some veneer in and I can glue up purfling and bindings.  Probably take the spruce out of the freezer tomorrow and cook it again, before anything can be done with the tops.

Still a ton to do.  Its different building this way, you get to see a lot of big parts go together right up front, but all the little detail is still ahead.

Fun fire wood, flames of another sort

Went for some of my shop supplies at my parents place today.  This caught my eye and I picked it out of the fire wood.  Oak with some beautiful figure.  Wish I would have seen the bigger pieces before they made it to the wood pile.
