I believe in my last post I said that I’d put up a photo of the finished piece as soon as I can. (I guess that means now). I thought for sure that I’d have something up in 2 or 3 days but perhaps it’s time to get real about myself…
I actually did manage to cut the cover out on my machine the following day (see pic below) but didn’t get to laying the silver leaf and subsequent tarnish job until just the other day. It still needs a clear coat to arrest the tarnish but for the most part it is finished. Looks pretty good too, I think. Looks like something one might find by digging up the lost treasure of some guitar loving pirates. Amazing what you can do with just a piece of plastic, silver leaf and some imagination (oh yes, and a computer, 3D software, CAM software, CNC machine…).
Here’s the apres cut shot:
Would love to hear what anyone out there thinks!
