After working on pointy guitars for so long, it's kind of fun working on something a bit curvy.

woodworker geak alert: so, I decided to try out a new style of blade for my band saw, and man, it cuts these body blanks like they were butter - sometimes it's the small things that just kind of make your day.

Great stuff!  It's got to be fun to put the straightedge away after 50 or so guitars!

No, I heard light sabers burn the wood.

I was going to say a Freud blade but I don't think they make bandsaw blades.
