Yeah, I read the last project of the month post but unfortulately only discovered it on about the 24th. I've tried to look it up in the archives but it only goes up to like July 2003 or something rediculous like that.

Setch, I did see your photo essay on guitar.com but have a few questions.

1.On the space from bridge to the neck is there 2 separate angles? Or is it one from bridge to neck, one from neck to end of body (according to bridge height)?

2.I see how you introduce a few angles from the top to the sides and work from there but how would you make a concave portion like around the very edge. Like if you were making a kind of "s" shape. Not going below the binding but not just a convex curve. Is that where you use scrapers?

That was a sweet post btw. Thanks.

well.... everyone has there own ways of carving the tops, i use an angle grinder with a special sanding disc and i also use a drill with a 4.5" 50 grit pad on it. These work really fast and depending on the wood can carve a top in an hour or two. so far ive done three and they all look great!
