Belly And Arm Cut

Recommended Posts

Hello all I am brand new here and am in need of some help.I am gearing up to build a strat style guitar and I have everything pretty much figured out theres just one thing I'm a litle confused about.How do you do the round over along the edge of the belly cut and arm cut.I know on the rest of the body you just use a round over bit but since these areas aren't rely suited for a router do you just file and sand them by hand.All help is much apreciated cheers.

You do it in many ways - some of use a router to make the initial bevels and then smooth them out with files/sanding. Other use hand planes. It's more about what you have access to as both ways will produce the same results - just that one may take a little more elbow grease than the other.
