I don't mean to speak for Evan, but I believe from his posts, a nylon electric is what he has in mind.

The template showing the sapwood on the veneer at the outside edges at the 2:56 mark took my breath away!

Thanks for the look behind the scenes.

Yes, a nylon electric, ebony faced. It's on its way. Will probably take a while to get out of Ireland given the heavy traffic at Emerald Central.

Cecilt;

Are you by any chance the same Cecilt on a vehicle forum? Just curious...

Any "sneak peeks" of this ebony?

The first veneer that Alistair rolls out in the video you provide above, that's the ebony.

Hi Evan,

Yo, Sean;

Veneers can be tricky to cut. How is Alistair doing his surgery? I've used a scalpel, but no matter what I've tried, veneers are tricky.
