Cnc Body Routing - Any Issues I Should Be Aware Of?

Recommended Posts

Hi there guys,

I'm working on my first guitar project, and I've chosen to use White Korina (or White Limba) as my body wood. My school has a CNC router, and being a fairly motivated technical drawing student and on good terms with the engineering faculty, I can arrange to have my body routed using it, rather than via more error prone methods.

My question is this: having never routed a guitar body, are there any special issues I should be aware of when routing a guitar body with a CNC router, such as certian things I shouldn't rout (the binding channel around the perimeter of the body is of particular concern)? And more specifically, are there any issues i should be aware of when routing with White Korina (White Limba)?

I must admit, I'd be pretty crushed if I perfected the routing over some runs using scrappy pieces of hardwood, only to then wreck the real deal :D.

Thanks for your help,

Liam M.
