Beautiful, as always, Ken. Thanks for contiuing to share your methods and your work. The only problem with your posts is that I find myself staring at the computer and salivating when I should be in my shop setting necks.

That stuff looks so nice. I wonder if you could bake the body woods like that

That's what I've been thinking..And I don't see why not....I understand torrificated wood is more stable than natural wood.

Looks torrific Ken!

Thought I'd replied to this, it must be the age!
Anyway my non-torrefied rosewood Timms arrived today.
Absolutely stunning construction and finish. Even better than in the photo's.
A classic in the making.

Seriously lovely, and has an instant vintage vibe.
