I wanted to make a decoration for my son’s room and liked the idea of hanging a guitar. We didn’t want to spend money on a real guitar just to hang for decoration. I decided to use strips of old barnwood and glued them to the cut out shape of a guitar. Using different shades of red/grey barnwood really make it stand out. This is the 2nd guitar I’ve made.

I had trouble earlier downloading the pictures. I added another one that shows the rest of the guitar.

Way to go Byron!!! You need to post some of your other projects. As I have said before, you have an eye for developing your own style.
