Thanks a lot. Well, its a bit of a mixture. The Neck is Maple. The body is actually 3 pieces of Iroko that I had around in the shed for 12 years plus...well dried out for sure! The pick board I made from solid Walnut I had and just sliced it with the bandsaw.
If anyone is into the guitar , give me a shout, I'd be interested to talk..

you mean in terms of purchasing it, or just learning from your experience making it?

Well, just if anyone else is going to make one. Not selling this one. I may make another.

Oak sideboard for my entrance hall. One photo with the doors not made. The other with the doors and drawer fronts made and loosely sitting in place. Need to fit the drawers, will use bearing guided runners, hinge the doors, make and fit the top and apply a finish.
For the finish I am thinking 3 coats Danish oil followed by beeswax on top. It gives a lovely lustre to oak and if done correctly is as smooth as glass.

Tried a cheapo approach to shavings&dust collection. Didn't work.



Did some steambending of a test offcut of walnut.







Lots of mistakes led to partial failure:



But this is why we do tests, right?
Besides. Not a complete failure...

Just finished this chair on the weekend. It's based on a chair I saw on Pinterest. Not a million miles from an Adirondack chair.

I stuck it on adverts.ie for the craic! Would be happy to recoup material costs. If nobody buys it, then it'll be a present for somebody

Hope I have attached the photo properly. Here it is finished and in its final resting place.

I did a class in working with green wood with Alison Ospina in Skibbereen - made this nice little table/stool.
