OK, i've been planning this build for a while. Finally got the wood today, I got the wood from a timber place and it arrive in a very rough condition. So I gota plane it and sand it down, getting the plane bit for the router this weekend.

So I decided to cut the body out, but I only had time to do the right wing. I'll proceed onto the left wing tomorow.

I'll be updating slowly over the next few weeks/months.

template on mdf, ye i ****ed it up but no biggie.

bolt on, im guessing u think its a neck thru is cos i cut the wings separately? well the reason for that is i got taught by a luthier that if i'm making a v, its better for the outer edge to follow the grain to avoid chipping.

ye im making the neck. gona take this nice and steady as its my first build, dotn wanna screw up.

a little update, just cut out the other wing. left wing is almost done, just need final sanding and shaping, right one needs planing then the final sanding and shaping.

How are you going to glue these two wings together? Wouldn't that be a bitch to clamp?

Quote by MichaelSpeer
you can also use the wood that u cut it out of that i imagine started off square to make a better surface to clamp together
am i making any sense?


mike


oh u mean like the original chunk of wood? that might work but i've sanded the sides down on the wings but havent sanded the chunks of wood remaining so it wont be as stable, whereas if i use small wedges on the sides i only need to sand the small surface of the wedges, then glue it on temporarily.

sorry if i've confused u

ok its been a while since i've updated.
i've thickness planed the body halves and the maple for the neck, filled mistakes with wood putty and cut the scarf joint for the neck.

need further sanding until i can glue the body together.

Thought I recognized the shape. Having semi-recently swapped the ones on my Cort for Sperzels, I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Are you gonna bevel the edges or something?
#24
ye i've heard good things about sperzel and decided to try them out.

yep gona bevel it. still deciding between black bevel with white body and black bevel and red body for paintjob.
Sincerely,
Shitstirrer
#25
I say black on red... And you probably already know it, but be extremely cautious when you get around to doing them. There are some right corners on theat body that'll be quite difficult to bevel properly.

What about the headstock? I think matching red with a black outline of sorts (binding or bevel, for instance) would look smokin'.
#26
ye i'm gona bevel the headstock too, something like a dean razorback setup, bevelled body with matching headstock.

hmmm man... I like how this is going, but I'm wondering why you need a jig for the scarf joint, and also, you seem to be using WAY to much glue.
#30
ye i squeezed too much lol.

the jig's for the router to run on cos i dont hav a plane
Sincerely,
Shitstirrer
#31
hmmm that might work but id advise to get a plane. it might be hard to get a surface suitable for gluing with just a router, and sanding. if you end up going that route id advise you use screws on the bottom of that countersunk into the board to give extra strength just in case your glue up wasn't strong enough on the jig. a router falling off of rails could be disastrous. EVERY router jig I've ever made has been nailed or screwed together to ensure that nothing would go wrong.

also i suggest that you make a large sanding block that can go on those rails and smooth down the surface to a suitable surface to be glued. and make sure you get ALL of the dust off of the surface before you glue.

My guess is that he's talking about the notches in the side...

In the blueprint it has wood gouged out of the side; the actual sawed body doesn't.
#35
oh the bevels? i'll do them later when i've sanded the sides down.
Sincerely,
Shitstirrer
#36
No, not the bevels. These. They're on the blueprint and the template and drawn onto one of the body wings.

update!
