Handmade instruments update
I have a plan for a full sized telecaster (actually several telecasters, but let's start with this one first). Alas, the wood that I bought for it badly warped before I had a chance to even cut out a body outline, so I scrapped it. I had that wood sitting around for a couple of months and then it went from perfectly straight to super cupped and twisted in less than a week.
As far as the plankocaster goes, I'm still chipping away at it. I made the first mistake! I was levering wood out of the neck pickup cavity only to discover that I was really denting the surface of the guitar with the lever action. So instead of a nice straight 90 degree cut into the wood, it's much more rounded.
I've started planning and gathering materials for a concert sized cigar box ukulele. I know I have the right cigar box around here but I have to dig it out of my pile. Not sure exactly where it is. And I can see the neck wood, it's in the far corner of the room. I'm going to have to move quite a few things to even lay a hand on it, let alone move it.
