Lostheart Posted September 26, 2007 Report Share Posted September 26, 2007 Hey guys! I've long been lurking here and always come here first when I encounter a problem but I have rarely posted on this board. I really hope you fellas help me out with your fast knowledge anyways. Anyways...I am in the process of making two Tele bodies from Pine...folks over at the TDPRI have been raving about Pine and I really would like to see what the fuzz is all about. I got the edges of both bodies routed and only then it occured to me that I really would like one body to be 1.5 inches instead of 1.75. Now I wonder what's a safe and fast way to bring the thickness of the boy down to 1.5 inches??? When I cut and glued the pieces of Pine together I took em to a shop where they planed the glued-up blank for me. I'm sure you guys know what kind of machinery was used for it...since English isn't my native languaege, I don't know the proper name of some of the machinery involved. They basically push the blank in on one side and it comes out in the required thickness on the other side. Now I wonder if the same can be done with the shaped body? Or is there a chance of some major f***-up when non-squared piece of wood is inserted into this machine??? The only other way I can think of to slim the body down is sanding...and I really don't want to sand for days to get to the thickness I want. Any help is greatly appreciated...
