Wooden Pickup Covers and Knobs

We like to make prototypes of new challenges before we make the final product. Kris made these out of scrap maple and purpleheart to work out the details before we cut up the really good wood. The customer specified how wide to make each laminate. You can see Kris' notes for final wood choices written on the cover in pencil.

This end view gives you an idea how the top layer was stacked on the base of the box.

finished pickups Finished pickups on the prepping table. On the humcancellers, we didn't make boxes, just put a thin layer of the laminated wood over the already installed pickup.
