Cool - did you show me that before?i think i have the beginnings of my next project. got a slab of london plane off a friend, almost (but not quite) the perfect dimensions for a tele body. it's long enough and thick enough, but about 1cm too narrow for a classic tele size, but i can work with that. there's a crack in it, most of which i will be able to cut out, but it could sink the idea.
from a tree which was felled in merrion square.

ahh - sorry - yes - just measuring the tele handing on the wall in front of me - its about 32/33cm.You might have seen a different piece of plane, but this is one a friend had. It's about 5cm thick, but 31cm across - I think a Tele would be 32 or 33cm?
yeah, it's certainly not big enough a size difference for me to lose sleep over. the crack is the issue though, it's about an inch in so could knock another few cm off that. i could saw it in two and insert a piece of mahogany in the middle (a fake 'neck thru' design in a sense) to bulk out what i'm missing but that might not look good.
Template- I had a big sheet of 2mm ply I cut in half and glued together. Going to make templates for all the pickup types I have to hand.did you freehand them or make a template?
i don't think i'll be able to get around the crack on this slab; i.e. i won't be able to use it without cutting it. pity, it's a nice piece of wood, and the uninterrupted grain is pretty.

that might be very useful to borrow it..
remind me, where do you buy your spare parts? definitely considering making the tele (and a neck too), so would need all the non-wooden hardware. does anyone do kits minus the wood (higher spec parts than the gear4music ones)?
Weird that I'd never heard of this lot before. Just slightly irritating that this bundle is of 600mm lengths, which is a little too short for a one piece neck.
