    Hey 73,

    I have the Barlett Templates coming and I wanted to know two things.

    What router bit did you use for the backplate cover route with the templates?

    Also the bit for the binding channel? I assume the binding channel was a 1/2" cutter with a 3/8" bottom bearing.

    Also, Couldn't you have just sanded the top close with the spindle and then routed the binding channel to get the top correct?

    Just spent three hours reading this thread - seriously inspiring stuff.

    I am DEFINITELY doing a scratch build after seeing this...I'll start thinking now, stock up on hand tools and look for wood. Maybe I can start the build early next year.

    Great colour choices and amazing work. :thumb:

    This the second best build thread I've ever read. I first saw it this morning and that eliminated any chance of getting anything else done today. Read it beginning to end.
    Thank you
