Some of you guys may be aware of a new build I have started. I went to the hardwood store today, and I purchased a beautiful piece of bubinga. I knew when I bought it that it was a little too thin. My first thought is to add material to the back. I purchased an extra piece of bubinga to accommodate this. I am now thinking that it would look funny like this. Like I put the "top" on the back. The extra piece is very straight grained, and has no character. So, there is no way I am putting it on the top. The body is too wide (14") to resaw, and use as a top. There must be a clever way to do this! I have enough wood to cut the shape out, and plane the left over piece for the back. This way the wood grain will match. But I really wanted to use it for a second body.
