Using reclaimed wood, I am building a guitar as way to reduce waste and inspire others to do so.

Project Description

Constructing a guitar out reclaimed materials.
This project has been created in commemoration of the lives of all the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, including two Ocean Bridge ambassadors, Danielle Moore and Micah Messent. We aspire to carry on their legacy and commitment to making the world a better place by creating long-lasting impacts with a firm commitment to driving positive change for the environment and our ocean. We will never forget the light that Danielle and Micah brought to the world and will continue to keep them in our hearts. To learn more about these two amazing people, please visit: Honouring Danielle and Micah  – Ocean Wise. This work is partially funded by the Commemoration Fund for Victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Tragedy

What was your biggest challenge?

So far, it’s been making the neck pocket of the guitar because it has to be perfectly straight. It’s a bit too wide at spots but the neck is perfectly aligned so the bridge will be straight. What I didn’t account for is that the neck is slightly tapered so there is a tiny gap at the top.
Using a shim, I fixed the imperfection. I found a thin piece of wood in the scrap bin and made it the right shape and size for what I need – it’s now underneath the neck plate.

What was your most valuable takeaway?

Woodworking is hard.
