Default Side Bending

Here are some shots for you luthier gear heads. Nick's Venetian cutaway incorporates a very tight 3/4" radius at the neck block junction and he as a special bending fixture to help him with this. This is always a bit of a scary operation when using figured woods like this Cuban Mahogany with interlocking grain.



The other Cuban Mahogany side being bent.





I am unsure about the legality of bending sides within the Portland city limits wearing a Seattle apron....
