What a lovely piece!
And what a lovely person for sharing it!
Guess what my kids’ guitar teacher’s getting for Christmas this year?

I’m thinking I might use a veneer for the pick guard though. And part of me wants to go overboard and fix some sort of super-thin wires as strings. But I don’t think I have the patience for that!

Great idea! I was thinking about that too as an option. You just need to complete the shape.

That pick guard is begging for a plastic tortise shell style inlay, oh my goodness

This was only my 3rd project, so I did it on draftboard first. It’s not glued yet but I love it. Thank you for sharing.

Glad you like it! I think the pick guard shifted away from the circle cutout. Somehow it must have slipped somewhere…

I did notice that. I’m not sure what I did but, I will make sure to fix it before I cut it out of better quality wood.
