I clamp my router in the vice with 2 fitted pieces of wood. Usually I pass the router over the body, but I will try to pass the body over the router.

Just takes a minute to spin the body - then a second time to ensure everything is even

Here is am holding the body against the tall fence as I spin it. This technique works great and I will try it on my next guitar.

Tape on the binding

A friend came up with a name for the project

Does anyone know how to post more than 3 shots per message? Or more than one URL?

Scrape the binding. I normally let the Duco sit for a bit as the binding shrinks, but it will still look great on this one

Do you change the setting of your router bit to take a tiny bit more off when you go around a second time for the binding? Or do you just go around the second time to get any spots you missed?

2 passes with the same setting. On a real guitar I might do 3 to be sure. I have never had to do much filing to even things up.

Url's are limited. I've not had any issue with posting photos. I don't know if you're limited by the size of the photos.

Are you putting your photos directly into the forum, or are you using a hosting service, like photobucket? You may be limited to 3 per post if you use a photo service.

I am restricted to three uploaded photos per post. I don't think this is unreasonable, but I wanted to give Ruby some confirmation that it's not just them.

All that's left is a set of legs to stand it up for display - I will eventually bolt it to a fencepost. I will add a picture once it goes on display in early March.

All walnut (thanks Diane), except for the piece of pine that is the pole/neck

And a couple more. If I post from a service, there is a URL involved and I only get the one to list. If I post pictures from my desktop, then I only get 3.
