Plenty of tests, a few failed experiments, a promise not to do any more leather until I fix the venting to be more leakproof (no leather in pic, still not happy w settings for saddleback scraps).
Couple of coasters, one I used some liquitex crimson ink to color some of the engraving. A few cardboard tests. Some vent covers I’ll do in wood and route the edges, wanted spousal approval on which pattern. A size test for telecaster pickguard (which I couldn’t check because the guitar is in a storage space behind the GF boxes). And a box I made out of Plike paper, which has a cool, smooth texture. Need some double stick tape to finish it.
It was a fun first day. Feel like I could have finished more things, but I’m learning.
