Sobot Posted July 1, 2005 Report Share Posted July 1, 2005 Some of you (maybe not) might know that I'm building my first guitar right now, and I was going to CNC the main shape of the body. Well, I've scrapped that idea, because I tested out my shape on a piece of *Alucobond*, which is a building material made of of 2 pieces of Aluminum and a plastic compound or something in between. But that's not important. My shape turned out fine, and all the measurements are perfect. So I've decided that I don't want to CNC it anymore, it's just too easy for me. I'm going to use the piece as a template and trace around it onto my wood (actually, I already did that). if you're interested, this is what it looks like: http://photobucket.com/albums/v215/Sobot/?...nt=P1010004.jpg Now, you see, I don't have a bandsaw, but I do in fact have a very nice very new jigsaw. Is it a really bad idea to cut it out using a jigsaw? I'm aware that the blade may bend if I go too fast and stuff, but is it easy to pull off successfully? And yes, I know there will be sanding involved. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
