This is the first time I've built a guitar. I'm doing this for my senior project, which I need to graduate high school. Muzikp is mentoring me and letting me use his garage and his tools. Hope it turns out well. I'm using a poplar board I got from Home Depot so I had to cut it and glue the pieces together. The blade slipped off the wheel while I was using the band saw, which was a little scary. I'm using corian for the template and I've never used a sanding machine before so it needs more work. I've almost got the hang of it though.
