My first build, back around Christmas 2015. Made with hand tools only in a little house at Tahoe. Poplar stick with Padron box.

That is looking great.  One of the best looking and sounding boxes you can get.  Nice woods and proportions and I love the head stock with the hanger hole.   Wait, is that a tuner hole?  Show us the finished project.   Lots of good lessons at page top under resources.
