    This week, now that the body pieces are sanded to rough thickness, we position the profiles of each part and then decide on our edge jointing for the bookmatches. Then a little edge planing and some glue-up. After that, i shape the sides and the top and back see some drum sanding to final thickness. I think we might be ready for bracing soon!

    In this episode it's all about bracing. Now that the front, back and sides are shaped, we can focus on the structure inside the body. I have a nice piece of sitka spruce that's perfect for this and I set about getting the absolute most out of it as I can. Thanks for watching!

    Unsure if ya'll are bored with this already but here's this week's installment ...

    This week, I start out with deciding whether to radius the top or not, thanks to a very good comment by Gabriel Hoffman - http://www.hoffmanguitars.com/ -- and explain my reasoning for the direction i chose to go. Then we set about doing the radiusing and then cutting the main joinery for the braces. It's starting to look like the inside of a guitar!

    In this episode, it's time for a couple jigs. We start out making up a slab that will be used for an outer mold jig. In the process, we have a little hiccup with the vacuum press. While that's cooking, we do up a new fretboard radiusing slab since I sold the last one. After that, the mold parts are cut and assembled into a decent shop-made clamping rig. Thanks for watching!

    Looking good. What kind of 2 sided tape are you using on the cnc? Carpet tape?

    Pretty soon you'll have the shop wall full of jigs.

    Yep - carpet tape - i found a bulk of a dozen or so rolls on ebay a while back. I still have like 8 or 10 rolls left. It's skookum stuff!

    Yep - i'm getting there already - two drawers full just for the 335 :P

    I haven't planned on making display cases yet - but it's not outside the realm of possibility. I would like to hang a bunch on the walls of my game/music room some day, though.
