Got some sinker redwood from Allied and 4 Engelman spruce bookmatched sets on eBay.

Thickness planed in the drum sander and joined (rather the reverse).  My friend Carl expressed a desire for a parlor, and one of these tops should work.



I just got back from a trip up the east coast from Florida to Montreal, and stopped at a lumber yard and purchased a billet of claro walnut.  I will use this with some walnut sides I have for some future guitar.  My challenge is to find a way to slice the billet into 4 useable plates for two backs.
