Guess the Tonewood..... 

Decided to build a cabinet for a combination bookcase/guitar case...the top drawer accommodates a humicase perfectly

Please tell me what you guys think of my Paduak cabinet

Be careful that your guitar doesn't catch on fire inside of that cabinet. It's scorchin', man! Olé!

Its a lovely looking cabinet and a good idea for keeping your favorite guitar healthy.
Unfortunately the color of Padauk fades away very drastically when exposed to light. I know a small padauk cabinet that is almost grey-brown.
But the beautifull craftmanship will always be there.
And in the long run, a more "relaxed" color may fit in better.

Save on insurance. Put a red Conde in the drawer and burglars wouldn't notice it!

Guess the Tone Wood..... (in reply to Lorenzo714

Very Good!!! Congrats to Ethan and Lenador for guessing Pine .....Yes I am cheap LOL!
But my idea was to take a very low grade wood like pine and make it sparkle.

THANKS to all about your kind comments about the craftsmanship. I'm sure all you Luthiers are capable of making similar cabinets of even better quality!

This was experiment with a special surprise in the top drawer for the future........and what's inside is definitely not Pine.......

So what 2 types of wood would you guess.....

RE: Guess the Tonewood..... (in reply to Lorenzo714

The wood inside is spruce of some kind. Then cypress. Figured wood is Oregon Myrtle or Black Acacia, or American Maple- they all can look similar in a pine drawer.

I was hoping it was going have sound samples of a guitar and everyone would say it's Brazilian rosewood and then you say, ha ha! No, it's actually plywood and paper mache, it's all in ze lucier's hands!

RE: Guess the Tonewood..... (in reply to Lorenzo714

Ok between everyone's guesses you guys got it.....

The wood is Oregon Myrtle and Port Orford Cedar....some of the POC is curly for back and sides and straight tight grain for a nice top....oh and guess what project I am about to embark upon....little by little...I'm not in a rush I already have a lot of tools but didn't have this one until yesterday.....picked it up almost like new for under 500 !

Why...because of the tracking? I already took it apart and put it back together and adjusted it properly. It ran 30 minutes good

RE: Guess the Tonewood..... (in reply to Lorenzo714

What John said. Get used to taking it apart and retracking it, I had one from 2003 to 2013 and in the accumulated hours I spent adjusting it and hating its guts, I could have built two guitars.

The other issue is it will also begin to sand tops unevenly side to side- one side will be higher or lower than the other and you get wedge shaped tops. If it were me, and it has been, I would use it for final sanding ribs after taking most of the wood off with a hand plane.

I sold mine for $400.00 when it was ten years old, I felt like a sleazy used car dealer pawning off a lemon.

Anyway, High Five to ECullen and me for guessing POC and Oregon Myrtle!

What is a "sticker machine"? Never heard the term.

Ricardo thinks rosettes are plastic stickers. So I'll make a machine to make them for him
