I have a couple things to update here for my shop thread. Last weekend I dug a little deeper into the Desert Ironwood log to get more trim pieces to go with the fretboards I previously posted. First I cut some sheets to slice binding from. Then I cut out a couple bridge blanks and finally I cut smaller blanks to use for making tuner buttons. I'm in good shape now for Desert Ironwood trim sets and I still have half the log I bought for future endeavors:

On the guitar front here are some pictures of the "Tree" Josie small jumbo. I have it strung up:

I'll give it a week or so and let it settle a bit before I replace the temporary wood saddle and do the final set up but, I have to say on first play it sounds wonderful. It has a very full and lush sound and plays very easily.

Thanks for viewing!
