    That is very nice wood there Freddy. I'd better become better aquainted with Mel, because I can never find any decent hard curly maple there.

    Looking forward to this build.

    Cheers Peter.

    Thank you for taking the time to do this Freddy. I'm quite looking forward to it.
    Also, I'm really happy to see you back. Luthiers corner wasn't the same without you here. I hope all is well with you

    Let the saw dust fly!

    Freddie,
    Just a maybe silly procedural question: Is there any reason that you did not cut your center line on the table saw? It's been my experience that a well tuned saw, with the right blade can achieve a perfect, glue ready edge that will easily pass the "candle" test. Maybe I'm missing some finer point or issue? Is it simply a personal preference? Of course, if you hadn't run it across the jointer and hand planed, you may not have found that "blemish" that would have REALLY torqued your gourd, a little further down the road!:wow:
    Thanks,
    Gene
