Tasmanian Devil

Still no action in the shop as of late... I'll finally get a break from the crazy work hours in a couple weeks, then hopefully there will be a flurry of guitar-building posts.

In the meantime, I'm buying a slab of Tasmanian Blackwood like this. (Though I'm not sure if this is the exact chunk of wood I'm getting, mine will be from the same part of the tree.) It's coming from Australia via Canada, then to Arkansas via Minnesota. It'll be a couple months before it arrives. And at my rate, it'll be eighteen years before I start to build guitars from it.



It'll be a 40"x13"x3" slab of wood, should make several nice guitar back and side sets once it's all sliced up.

Comments:
I have been somewhat worried about you, what with the lack of posts and all. I like the new wood. Pretty.
