A Flying V for my son Jake

Jake has just started to play guitar and has learned as much in the last few weeks as I did int he first year! He wants a flying V so I'm building it for his 17th birthday in August.
The wood for the body is from that pine dining room table and the neck another leg from the table that my ukulele necks came from. It's not supposed to be an exact copy of a Gibson more like a mix of both models plus a bit of what I fancy. (Like a wrap round bridge) Should be fun to play, I hope he'll lend it to me sometimes!
