OK. This last one has little to do with lumber and none of them really have anything to do with Forest Products. But they do look interesting! Building a guitar would be great fun and we have lots of fabulous wood you could use. So get out there, do something fun, and don't forget to stop by Forest Products Associates for great lumber and boatloads of inspiration.
