I'll skin that cat and still end up with the bloody fleas!

thanks fella's, but don't listen to cozy, there is no lizard. well, a bluetounge in the backyard.

I thought I'd wrecked the side panels by taking too much wood while shaping. when I put em with the bare metal, they looked pretty good, an nice form and line. then the fluff arrived ...... goodbye sleek lines.

Someone from Texas might be able to help out (JDansti?) with a unique armored pelt, often found along the roadways there. I'm betting you could make something fantastic with it. :icon_twisted:

I posted these over in the pictures forum, but thought it might be appropriate to double post in here as well?

Made a few pedal boxes out of black walnut.  They're overdrives - i think the topography gives away which overdrives...

Combination of the topography and the choice of knobs  8) Really great looking builds though.

Hello,
here's my "Woodface", a Fuzz Face-clone with some mods...

Glued a bookmatched veneer on it.

Many moons ago (2006?) I built a sweepable band pass filter with a switchable schottkey diode for an old-time radio effect.  I can't remember which forum member etched my boards and which one did the enclosures but I did a small run and they turned out super nice.  Wish I would have kept one.

Ha!  That cat fuzz is pretty funny.  The OCD clone is really nicely executed.  Looks great and I bet it sounds awesome.

back when we moved into this house in the 60's, there was a gum tree growing in the chook-yard, which blew down (the tree, not the chook house) in a storm sometime early 80's. it seems my old man had select logs "run through a saw", which were then left under the house to season, for what future use I don't know.

skip ahead to late last year, my sister is looking for woody things to throw out before the termites can eat them, and she finds the last usable sized log under the house. which I then rescue, saying you can't chuck that, I'll build something from it.





so I did - a Bosstone fuzz, Nashville version. here it is (sitting on the planks it was cut from), a chunk of gum stuck in a cut-down Horwood aluminium extrusion, oiled with turps and linseed, airbrushed w/ acrylics, styled by Larry and Mike of the "second style council". (undetectably wedged in three different places) it came out looking ok, if somewhat unspectacular, even sounds pretty good. if I was paid per fcuk-up, I'd be rich just from this one build.

those wishing to see the guts mess and some more pics can follow through to the imgur page.
