I have uploaded this one a long long time ago but for some reason it keeps popping back up in my head. Maybe it’s time to start saving some money for this beauty!

Here’s a better close up of the scales. I learned this technique from @woodwhisperer Marc Spagnuolo with his YouTube channel. He does a natural wood tone demo, I took the technique and added a step by using different colors. #wood #woodworking #razor #scales #maple #spalting #dyes
A baritone telecaster made from some Black Alder that reputedly grew in a tree nursery near Taupo. It has this remarkable figure that I had thought was the precursor to full-on spalting, but maybe it’s not…
Some pieces have a hint of curly grain and there’s some black staining in most of the pieces, like the hint visible in this body. The slabs spent a long time wet, mouldy and out in a paddock and had a lot of fungus on the surface when I got them.
