2010-01-05 Wood gloat


This evening's Sonoma County Woodworkers Association meeting was at Luthier's Mercantile International Inc. up in Windsor. The presentation on guitar building was excellent (as every SCWA presentation I've been to has been), but they also had a scrap pile, $5/lb. Maybe $105 for that haul isn't a tremendous deal, as a lot of that wood is pretty thin, but I think I can get 5 pairs of book matched Walnut door panels out of that, I'm going to cut the guitar sides in pieces and use them as a curved top to a jewelry case, there's at least two other bookmatched door panels there, some curly maple drawer that I can put into a couple of drawer fronts, and a few other pieces that'll add some accent and pop.
