Remember that build I was gonna do?

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to jump into your thread.   My laminate trimmer is relatively inexpensive and like I said, for standard "flat" tops and backs I just tape a little shim on it that holds it more or less perpendicular to the side.   I try to follow the stewmac direction but mostly if I hold on tight I can just run around the body.   I have to turn it so the shim is always working but its never failed me.

Note that the shim is thick at the center line of the base and tapers to nothing at the outside edge.

This is as clean as it's gonna get. I need to focus on the back. I also managed to bind the end of the fretboard, but I need to work on my mitering skills:

I'm not about to buy any special took from StewMac. I have a cheap set of nippers that I'm hoping is up to the task. I'm more concerned about sanding the binding to the same radius of the fretboard - which I bought pre-radiused and preslotted.
