Just over 2.5 hours of work and i have finished the pickguards creation. All that is left to do is paint it and that segment of this project is done. It really pumps me up to have compleated somthing that i can point to, and say 'See, this will be finished'.
It has also become dry enough for me to start testing the lacqor that i bought. I applied a thin coat across the same board that i had sanded, stained, and painted with a small version of the acrylic paint webs. In 2 hours time, another coat. Tommarow, i will see if i can get started painting my guitar's body.
