    In order to get the "cut" in the right place I put the piece back on. Well, sort of. I used a piece of foam I had laying around the shop (never throw out scraps) and started shaving in down to fill in the top cutaway so I could visualize where the saw might have started. I used a few different rasps, files and a lemon zester to form the foam to fit and then carefully shaved down the top so it was almost flush.

    I don't know if this was necessary, but I felt better seeing it this way rather than just guessing. Anyway, here's the pics... much more to be done.

    That bare wood is going to get the True Oil and Wax treatment eventually.
