This is a project i saw a drawing for a couple of years ago and now was the time to do something about making one.
It is a gift for my sister-in-law who is a big Elvis fan.
It is made from hardwood & finished with food safe oil.

No Crowie, never been. I like his music but not a big fan. Good to listen to but not so good to watch if you know what I mean.

Musick is musick… the ex loved Elvis (like your SIL)... had to rebel… he did play a mean gitah though (Jimi, not the King)!

Cool looking guitar Tony. You have the perfect juice grooves on the top. Should be a real winner with your SIL.

Nice cutting board Grumpy! It certainly is different and a creative gesture. Now it’s time to make it sing and cook up some spicy numbers…
