    No I wont keep it, olive wood live edge is much more brittle than the olive wood itself, so this wont be a good idea.
    Maybe I'll try it on another build but not know.
    Make the insert for the electronic cavity cover, no big deal if you have a table router and the right bit, otherwise this simple step can become a real mess...

    Condolences, Nick, 38 is way too young.

    I hope you find some solace through creation and working with your hands.

    Blood wood and olive wood are so dense that the neck might no need a truss rod !:D
    Cut the excess wood at the band saw and then make some passes from the oscillating drum sander.
    It looks good!
