    A rather basic tilted amp stand. I needed a way to arrange these two combos in a somewhat elegant, living room compatible way.

    Both amps remain accessible, both can be turned on and used at any time.

    I recently acquired some great African mahogany that is very light, but it was not too wide

    so, I have been wanting to build a non reverse firebird for a long time, so I am in the planning stages of this:

    I re-sized it a little bit (less than 10%) to fit within the width

    Building a new fret slotting jig. This jig will allow me to do fanned fret and single scale fretboard on necks up to 5.5" wide.

    Glued a top.

    [​IMG]

    Roughed in a neck blank.

    [​IMG]

    Shaped a fingerboard, routed a truss rod slot, and glued the fingerboard on.

    [​IMG]

    Flattened the body blank and top and glued them.
