Being a hobby woodworker I make a multitude of projects from stringed instruments through to fine furniture.
Here is one of my recent guitars:

This is the Dunluce III 6 string electric.

2 humbucking pickups made by Taylor
Bridge: Schaller Hannes Ruthenium
Machine Heads: Schaller M6 Locking Ruthenium
Bone Nut
Body: Figured sycamore wings over mahogany/maple
Neck: Through neck made from mahogany with maple thru striping
Fretboard: Ebony 24 fret fingerboard with MOP inlaying and 12" radius
Electronics: Custom electronics giving 12 distinct sounds from different switching combinations.
