Honestly I mainly used this because its my first acoustic build and I didn't want to loose any money if I screwed up on it. Plus it will be pretty cool to have my first build to use a piece of wood that came from my property. Actually the Wormy Chestnut that I made the Rosette out of came from a board that I took off of my barn several years ago and had kiln dried.
