I am making slow progress on my superstrat build and today I routed the truss rod slot. This step has taken me forever mostly because of a lack of spare time, but also because I was afraid to make the rout lest something go wrong. I don't own a router table, so I made an initial slot (slightly too narrow and too shallow) using the dado blade on my table saw. Then I clamped the neck into my Workmate and used a piece of MDF as a straightedge guide for the router. It worked like a charm and I have a nice straight truss rod slot that looks like it should. Does anyone else get super nervous before making irreversible cuts or routs?
