Have a question about using some birds eye maple wood i have had for a very long time: the wood was cut by my grandfather in Eagle Lake Me in the 50s and he was going to make a work bench: that never happened: i traded the larger planks to a luthier friend to make guitars: i found these upstairs in my shop: would they make a good neck: i will post a few pics: the wood is 15/16" thick, length 36 'to 41'. thanks, sk
Here are a couple more pics to show what this one looks like. This box is longer than some so has a good amount of the stick supported, so that has probably helped to keep it straight. This is the smallest one of three "drop-offs" of walnut I found in the drop-off bin at my then new favorite lumber yard. Can I say SCORE!? This is when I started building and they are all three in three stringers with heavier Speal blues-style strings and they are straight. Hope this is not just more muddle...
15/16” is thick enough, most of us are using 1 1/2” x 3/4” stock, so you’re good to go?
Thanks for the pictures: they are a big help: guitar looks great: again thanks for the advice: sk
The youtube video is also helpful: thanks
