Cutting Pick Guards

Recommended Posts

From reading through various posts and researching on-line, this is what I beleive to be the best way to cut your own pickguard from a blank?

1. Attach pickguard material to 1/8 thick board with double sided tape

2. trace template shape onto the pickguard material.

2. Cut shape out with a saw (hand saw or sabre saw)

3. Use router to bevel the edge

4. take pickguard off the board

5. Use file then sand paper as required (i.e. 220, 400, 800 .... - 1500) to get a nice edge.

6. Then buff to high gloss with compound.

Is this correct or did I miss anything?
