verhoevenc Posted November 20, 2006 Report Share Posted November 20, 2006 How in the world would you do it!? And for those that don't know what a bent top is, think Brian Moore like this: Where the body wood is carved in an arch and the top is warped to follow that curve and then glued.... so you get kinda a carved top feel while still maintaining a carved topish look. The problem is, the bouts will be "Deeper" into the carve than the inlets... meaning you couldn't just use a bearing bit cause it always changes heights... not to mention the sides are never perpendicular to the sides. The only way I can really think of doing it is with a small chisel by hand... but that seems quite tedious... so I thought I'd ask ya'll first.
