Very nice!

Where did you buy that cloth, and do you think it would be well suited enough for building a custom couch/sofa? I'm curious what other kinds of fake wood print patterns for cloth there are.

It's good ol' Ikea, the product is called "Lisel" designed by a lady called Helena Gyllensvärd. I'm not an expert on furniture covering, so I'm not sure if this is thick enough to serve as the only layer. But it's 100% cotton and does appear quite sturdy.

Thanks! Doesn't look like ikea has other wood prints, but I found stores that have all kind of weird fabric prints: concrete, popcorn, french fries, marble, etc..

I used to have a chair where I redid the seat cover fabric (not sure what exactly it's called) with regular ikea black fabric and that was sturdy enough, although maybe not stretchy enough for a couch.

You can also have a print shop print whatever you want directly to the fabric. Then your panels can be art pieces or whatever.

I'm usually more an explorer guy
My first proper guitar was a Jackson Kelly. Many many years later I bought a guitar with a "standard" shape, and I learned that they give me pretty bad shoulder pain now. Probably gonna stick with Kelly/Explorer shapes for the future. Never played a V, but I doubt it would work for me, as I always play sitting.

That's a great idea, Thanks a lot! I didn't know you could order custom printed fabric of that size. For more complex sewing projects, you could even print the cutting/sewing pattern straight onto the fabric.
