Swamp Box

Well I woke up last night and had a thought:huh: What if that is lead paint on there so off to Lowe's got a test kit and sure enough LEAD PAINT :doh: So off to the firebox it goes. Man that sucked. Oh well I have plenty left without any paint on it. Lucky for me I only had one board with paint on it out of 2200' bf :dunno:

Nice ones Jay. I like the sound holes. I'll bet that cypress would look nice sand blasted with a burnished, limed and distressed finish too. Have to admit that my preference would be all or nothing on the saw marks.
