Todays livestream should be 'fun and frantic' - I'm going to attempt to glue AND complete gluing and trimming back the headstock veneer LIVE.

Can't help showing off a bit more of Roland's 400 YR Old Walnut...Headstock veneers - bring yer best Q's - cheers folks!

Measure twice, cut once...

You are amazing, you've read my mind. I need to do a headstock veneer to cover another of my routing mishaps.

There was a discussion about veneers on the back of the headstock and Mark asked to post a photo. It's not a great pic as I couldn't get closer without creating a shadow. Restoration of a not very expensive Framus but it's a family heirloom which had a chip out of the headstock including the veneer, no truss rod cover and a long crack in the rib.

The owner wanted to make it playable leaving some of the wear and tear. I got the back veneer from Timberline in England as plain white wood with no figure and had to blend it in with the slight volute. It was to cover up screw holes from 3 different sets of tuners that had been fitted. Resprayed the neck to blend it in. 

Also had to replace the damaged front ebony, make new inlays and source a Framus logo. Then clear coat over the whole thing.

I haven't got the equipment to make a veneer to cover the mess on my headstock, but I guess that I could glue on a thicker piece then surface route it down to veneer thickness.

I'm just wondering ... you'd use the router to get yourself out of a problem situation that the router got you into ??

😆 

I've got various bits of veneer here.  I'd happily put a headstock-sized piece in the post for you.  Light, or dark?

That would be fantastic, a peice of dark please, it's a mahogany neck. I was a bit wary of hitting it with the router again. I'm running out of time to have this guitar finished. I'm home from the caravan and sorting my garage to have a working space. I'm having surgery to repair my hiatus hernia in two weeks time, so starting 14 days self isolation tomorrow, then it's going to be a few weeks recovery before I can get guitar building again. I'm aiming to have it at least playable during my recovery. Did we figure out how to private message on here?  My email is robingosman@gmail.com  if you send me an email, I can reply with my postal address.

  I need to retire. 

I can recommend retirement, I wish I'd done it sooner.

I just-about retired a few years ago.  

But then I lapsed.  Moved house (to something needing money spent on it) and then people offered me work.

🙁

Thanks TV, much appreciated.  I had the router out again today, managed to put a radius on the front edge of the body without any mishaps, things are looking up.
