    Another accident :squint: I sawed a piece off my work-bench so I could move about in my workshop/garage and fiddled about with it to test the refurb I did on my knackered old bandsaw then tried out my new palm router (takes some getting used to the lightness) and sprayed the end result with a tin of un-used Pacific Blue I must have had for ages .
    I wasn't expecting to keep anything out of this but I really like it so will finish a neck for this keep it nice and simple and bright .

    Woosh ! you don't miss anything Josh :noplease:
    I didn't realize I'd sprayed this with that shit hardware store type stuff that never really sets, a few weeks after I could still smell the paint so I left it hanging up dry and forgot about it.

    I'll have to get some Nitro to blast over it - I started another 7 Tele out of anger just after that one so I'll do a double build off :flame:

    Are there any more ? :cool:
