I just made some new wood sides out of some black walnut sourced from our property today. Took a while to let the wood cure since I didn’t have a kiln but I had some old stock on hand. The figuring is nice, can’t wait to get a finish on it. I’m thinking I want something more like an oil finish, not glossy or matte poly. I’ll post pics when I get the finished product. here is the unfinished wood installed for fit. It’s a nice and fitting upgrade for such a grand old lady! I love my Tascam 388!
