Your guitar is beautiful. Reminds me vaguely of a Dobro.
I once had a friend who made a guitar from an old porcelain bed pan.
Thanks for sharing your imagination and expertise.

These are "whole cloth" quilts, for babies. Made of lightweight satin.

(They're shiny, so the pics don't do them justice. But, I'm posting 'em anyway.)

Nothing to add here... No talent in our house.

BUT I am amazed at the wonderful things that all of you have done. Fantastic Work.

Such talent in the FiberglassRV group. Wow!

for sharing.

I have seen Mary's quilting and saying the pictures don't do them justice is an understatement. Her designs and her hand quilting are both amazing.

My husband laughed when I told him about the bed pan guitar.
He's quite fond of folk music, but current project is designing 7 string guitars - for a bunch of metalheads.

Awesome! I love it! I have a CNC mill in my shop and have done a few engine turning do-dads too. Which old car used to have a dash like that? Love it.

I outfitted my CNC mill with a router so I sketch Indian head, scanned, converted it to vector graphics in illustrator and then fed that into Mastercam to get the CNC code for each piece.
One off my most fun projects ever.
