Here’s kind of a step by step of one of my guitars using 200 year old wood.

Cool build. Harmony Stratotone?
Basically but I added a truss rod, installed the frets where they should go for a 25 1/4” scale, didn’t round the edges, built it with 200+ year old Douglas Fur where they used poplar and the neck-thru represents significantly more area.
I liked the original Harmony/DeArmond but much prefer what Rob has built from Gemini pickups.
