RULE #62 Tele

I set out to build a pine tele..This build was for my good friend JT to add to His collection ( strat,Les Paul,335 etc...).. Leo Fenders 1st telecasters and prototypes were in pine...being from NC I had plenty of it around! I glued 4 pieces ( 2 high and staggered em). The tele template I made is slightly different than a Fender with a shorter bottom horn. My goal here was to combine a bit of the new with the old, give a respectful nod to Leo with this being the teles 60th anniversary yet…

Small box?

Someone gave me a beautiful cigar box but its small, 6 x 6 x 3" H, and I want to do it justice. Looking for suggestions.

A custom build for sid Workman and his brood of rockers.  Sid supplied the chunk of homegrown walnut, plus some other really unique woods I'll use.
