Beautiful wood

This is some of the best looking wood I have ever seen.It’s chestnut from an old garden tree here in Denmark. It was so brittle when I started, that it had to be infused and stabilized with Resin, for it to be usable. My job was to produce a tele body with backside electronic cavitie. Now the rest is up to the owner of the chestnut tree.😊

Mex strat refin job

Just finished a refin/relic job on this, former, shiny white Mex Strat.The refin is done in ice blue nitrocellulose with a clearcoat of vintage amber nitrocellulose.Cured under blacklight to achieve the greenish look, that 40 years of playing, will do to that color. The crackling of the paint is done by rapid downcooling using compressed air.Back of neck is stripped of lacker, color stained and given a few layers of tru-oil.😊
