Juntunen Guitars Posted May 30, 2010 Report Share Posted May 30, 2010 (edited) I have been thinking of ways to get some routing templates made for control cavities and just thought of this idea. I free hand route control cavities but the lip that the cover sits on has always been hard for me to get acurate with the covers I make and I use the same control cavity route on all my rear routed bodies so I thought maybe I could make a cover that's about a half inch thick and put it on the plywood sheet. Then using a ball bearing bit, route around the edge of it so I have an over sized hole that it fits in wiht plenty of room. Then pour epoxy in the hole to fill in around the cover. Surface sand it and have a semi clear template. I would then have a template that I could sit over the control cavity and have a shape I know I will always get out of the route. So would this work ok or am I missing something? I got this idea from building canoe paddles Edited May 30, 2010 by Juntunen Guitars Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
