Here is the swallowtail finished. I think it has a foam core or maybe just @ the nose & tail? It didn't look or pick out like wood.
So after filing & sanding it smooth, I just used some of this shit.
& gave it a few coats, good enough for me.
The Kemper is the tester board. I don't know if you can tell in the pic, but I did manage to bend a bit of rocker into it & it has stayed like that so far.
Whether it will work on the K2, I'll just have too see.
My cam is in the pawn shop @ the moment, so no pics, but I have glued some veneer to the Kemper. Only about half of it just to see if it would work, & surprisingly it did. Nice & flat, no bubbles.
I only have little pieces of veneer, the biggest about 8"x16' maybe? But I got a shit load of it & it was free. So there's no way I'm buyin' anymore. So I'll just have to make it work. Bit of a pain in the ass, but I think I should be able to tape 8 pieces up & make it look pretty.
The whole top wood grain with just some spikes stickin' out for grip.
Then hopefully I'll have my camera back & I can take some pics of the finished product.
It can't ride any worse than it did, I don't think?
So I'm stoked, worst case scenario, I'll have a deadly looking stick to hang on my wall.
