RockPlates by Till Guitars

Koacasters. Matched Koa RockPlates

RockPlates are my way of adapting to the current economy. My way of keeping my saws turning while the world is on unpaid vacation. Much to my surprise, they're really catching on!
Actually, I'm not all that surprised. I put a lot of effort into these. They may be small and look "stamped out", but each RockPlate goes through no fewer than 12 separate woodworking stages. Back and forth between the table saw, bandsaw, routers and drill presses. And that's before hand sanding and finishing. I sand each piece down to 220 or finer before applying dyes and lacquer.
All in all, the whole process is remarkably similar to my actual guitar building process.
LP Shape With Cherryburst Finish. Classic!

RockPlates will be a great training ground for any shop apprentices I take on in the future. I've learned a lot from this venture myself. I've become somewhat of an expert on jig making. Each new model and function requires a whole set of hold-down devices and such.
And, because I make so many of them, I get to experiment with new finishing techniques,
