Shoe rack for to stick shoes in.
Made out of a single sheet of plywood, a lot of glue, and some wood stain.

Next up, pickguard for my fretless bass, made of flamed maple.
Came out purty good if I do say so myself!
It's still soaking up oil like crazy, this was a test fit to see how it looks. Probably needs another 3-5 coats of tung oil.
That's all for now. More hopefully pretty soon!
Woo!! The bass looks AWESOME! I mean, so does the shoe rack, but i'd seen that already. Go you!
Looks even better in person, as you can see the "flame" in the maple shifting as your head moves. it's fun. ^_^`
oooooooh. Now I can't wait to see it. I'm still just in awe that you actually *made* it. You made a bass!! That's so cool!
no no, just the pickguard of this one. The body came pre-finished, and the neck is off my old blueish fretless.
next up is a bass I'm doing the whole body of (photo of the body post-staining is up on my gallery
and adding an existing neck.
After that, I'll actually build a full bass.
Baby steps. ^_^
made, assembled... symantics! You did more than I could do, and before you started on it was not a musical instrument, and now it is. I stand by my assertion!
Oh wait, ignore me. I'm being stupid. I thought this was the bass that had been sitting in pieces in my basement.... not the one you already own and play on. Nevermind. Still cool though!
Actually, now I'm confused all over again.... was there assembly required?
::shrug:: You're still cool, regardless of what state the bass was in before you started. =)
I'd love to make an acoustic instrument once my skills progress. Someday...
Go you with the crafty.
*gets down with his bad self*

Man, I need some innovative storage solutions.
They's useful, that's for sure.
I'm still trying to figure out a good solution for holding lots of 12oz beer bottles in a small footprint.

Cool. Much more complex than the bookcase I built!
I realized that I didn't have nearly enough clamps to glue it up properly, so I had to work in stages, strategically plotting which parts to do based on my limited supply of clamps. ^_^
"...for to not scratch the bass with"
Hooray for creating.
I wish I could make a cello! But that's NOT going to happen. ;)
a little more complex than where I'm at right now... ^_^
Wow, i'm super impressed. And the shoerack is a brilliant idea; i must see if we can make one once we finally move...
yeah, we used to use milkcrates, then moved up to a crappy wood shelf that we found on the sidewalk, and I figured it was time for something that would hold boots on the bottom, sandals on the top, and normal shoes in the middle; would fit the space; and wouldn't look like ass.

Wow, I'm terribly impressed!!
Jeez, if these are your baby steps, I think I'm going to drool incoherently when you get around to doing your pet projects.
shiny, dude. keep posting 'em.
I'll keep posting as long as you keep looking. ^_^
party on dude!
