Hi Mark,

welcome to WBG group !

I haven't completed my first build yet.

The wood thickness is about 8mm, but the wood does not seem not very solid, so I went for a neck-through-body.

So....Interesting looking possibilities.   Has anyone actually put one together yet?  From the couple of photos, I'm a little worried about the wood thickness.

Possibly thickness-plane the lid?

Hi DMON! Welcome to WBG group!

I'm eager to complete my first WBG too, but I have to wait for the tuners I bought on  eBay to arrive :-(

 

Fernando, I'm curious to see how your reso will come out :)

I think I'll drink 3 bottles, to get a box like yours :D

After drinking a lovely Cabernet, I looked at its wooden box and I realized it was perfect !!!  Wine and music have always been a perfect pair !
