Bevel Tools?


Recommended Posts


I’m going to make a replacement body for my Ibanez RG321. The body will be in the shape of an RR and was going to be flat topped.

However, I’ve decided to make the RR body with bevels now.

I was just wondering what the best way to do this would be and what tools would be best for this?

This is my first build and I’m scared of messing up :D

Well, here's what I did. First off draw your bevels on the body, both on the top and the side to show how deep you want. Then I used a spokeshave to take off the main parts. After that it was a little bit of rasp and a lot of scrapers. Well, a lot of scraping with a cabinet scraper. It took a little bit of time, but well worth it. Doin' it that way you can go nice a slow so you don't screw anything up, or are less likely too.
