Hey Craig, thanks for following the build. Yeah, these are double sides, triple actually. This is an idea I got from a dear friend and old shop mate Jeremy Clark. Iíve been using them for about three years now and I canít imagine myself going back.

I glued up the neck blanks last night, planed them clean this morning. Iím not sure thereís anything more satisfying than revealing a perfect glue joint.

Very nice work! clean and crisp. Good case of almost "monotone" colors that work. Are you going to do some pore filling on back and sides?

Thanks Craig! I like to keep it simple, understated l, and well executed. The guitar will be pore filled, and then receive a full gloss u.v polyester finish.
