Guitar body top
I helped a friend do his first cast, a 500mm x 200mm x 30mm cast, cut in half and milled down to 2 book matched boards for guitar build top. Objective was green and gold with some blue near edges of the Brown Mallee burl pieces. Done in epoxy with no pressure, too big for pot, but still worked out well with only minimal bubbles. It was left in mold for a few weeks before cutting to ensure epoxy had stopped moving

That is real purty; your friend is lucky to have such a mentor.
Will the finished instrument make it onto the forums in due course?A thief stole my anti-depressants. I hope he’s happy now.

another treat by the cast master. Not stealing your thunder but How is the best way to cast when you don't have a pressure pot, or best stuff to use, resin or epoxy?
