hate to see this thread get shuffled away back in the archives. This 7X14 walnut with maple strips is not done, still plan to brass plate the chrome on the throw and find or plate some either black or brass tuners. Stellar hoops, trick throw, allstar lugs. The walnut was beautifully figured, very nice piece of lumber. Finish is just a coat of tung oil and some dupont automotive clear, still too wet to polish, need 3 weeks or so dry time.
