Today I planned and cut the top:



Tommorrow - cut f-holes and maybe cut out the body outline for the back.

Getting there! You're F-holes look nice by the way.

If you want them to look more 'delicate' you can carve around the edges on the inside.

I know what you mean. Maybe if you posted pictures of your lunch every now and then...

Seriously, after watching your strat build I've been lurking on this one. I mean, I don't exactly have ideal tools but what you build with just blows my mind. Keep up the good work.

If you build it, they will come.

Thanks guyz I really appreciate what you say and it encourages me a lot.
I'm working on the contours of the top right now.

I've drawn my own contours for a test. I'll try it on a scrap wood and if I'm satisfied I'll copy it to my top.

Good work! That strat you built was great, this looks to be similarly great! As for color, I vote for a nice solid dark red.

So, what do you say, shall I go with arched top like this one I made on a scrap wood or maybe I'll stay with the flat top?

A little progress on the pickup cavities:
I cut the holes on the top and shaped them with a file. Later I will deepen them more.
Sorry bout the focus
