The case rack made me confident to try to build a guitar(Tele type). The cherry tree laying in the garden (brought down years ago) as finally found its purpose.









So now the wood has to dry, update in a few years.

Nice... looks like some dense wood. Is it heavy - relatively speaking?

that's going to be a heavy guitar, man



on a more seriuos note......why not cut that big piece into slab size (include enough material for waste) and store them in dry sawdust.

Yes the wood is dense, hard and heavy. I estimate around 3.5kg/7.7lbs for the body.

I was thinking of letting it take its shape/form (dry) for a year or so, and then cut it into the correct width (plus a few millimeters).
But what do I know , it?s my first time.
Any tips or info are always welcome and appreciated.
