There's nothing like starting the day on the right foot and doing a little chiseling of the back braces. I treated myself to a mini plane to profile them then I had a helluva time getting the right taper at the ends. I'm loving this Frog tape too. It's not only good for painting but is also less prone to tearing out wood fibers.







I also took a small sanding block to my soundboard's braces. It's not as photogenic with all the dust but it does give good vibrations. Seriously. I was hold the plate up against my chest as I sanded and I could feel the top resonating slightly. Pretty cool!
