    Saw this as I was cruising FB marketplace. A mahogany bodied Model A/32? I think the person did a good job on the work they did and it is kinda cool in it's own way so I can't say I hate it, but I think they could have done a little better job on the proportions. Still pretty well executed though. Price in the ad was pretty good too so it might have been spam.

    Looks like he used the kind of plywood they make boat decks out of, or made it of thin plywood then covered it with veneer. Not bad considering the limitations of the material he was working with. Looks like a Golden Hammer award winner from a 50s Mechanix Illustrated.

    I’d paint it black and call it done.
    Great woodworking skills.
