This is driving me nuts! :?

Maybe it's a Google Photo issue. Let's see if Microsoft works any better...

Thanks Chip. Anthony (ac4468) has been an invaluable resource (and all-around good guy), but I didn't get any templates from him.

I made them all myself -- prolly spent 4 months working with MDF before I touched any actual lumber.

Feel free to PM me re the fretboard inlays.

A couple photos of Wolf No. 3.

The only significant difference between this one and the last two is that I used homemade binding for underneath the fingerboard....

It had a buyer before it was finished. But eventually, this pile of wood will be turned into guitars too.

I'm thinking of re fretting a strat, what size frets are you using?

I use what StewMac calls its "medium/higher" fret wire -- item No. 0152.

Absolutely beautiful work. I really like that bevel. What size round over bit did you use?


Thanks! It's a 3/4" bit.
