Then it is time to scrape/level the sides before routing the binding channels

Marking and trimming wood binding with purfling and miters can be a time consuming task.

Getting a sense for how this is all coming together now and I like it a lot.
Bevan. I love that bloodwood!

Default Thanks

Hey it feels great to connect with all of you - Steve, great to hear from you, I am still rolling off that connection you helped me make all those years ago. Ben, Your little clamp on mitre jig is a wonder in action.
Everyone else, thanks for your time and attention and the chance to add my take on the acoustic guitar to the mix here on the AGF.
I had a photographer friend take a few photos of some of the details on this guitar. These shots will help me sell some of my options.
