amp work: Tweed Dirty
three years ago I started a tweed head for a small 18w handwired chassis.
I was working by hand and my woodworking chops could never quite get the symmetry of the curves I was going for with the front or rear panels.
this project was backburnered until I could get the lines I liked.
after arriving in TX, I got access to CNC and the first thing I did was cut and tolex the panels.
the catch? the rest of the head had already aged a little and the colors were mismatched.
I tried to age the new parts - didn't work.
The next best option was to make the whole head looked aged and blend the differing shades.
