    I checked out those templates on the website you listed. Clarify for me if you will....were they cut out or did they just send outlines you used to make your own templates?

    They come cut out. Very very useful tools. I didn't see the thing about advertising on threads, so I don't know if mentioning that web site was a no no. I'm not affiliated with the seller. Just a happy customer. I got most of my templates from him.

    Awesome job, bro! I gave my groomsmen (and my Dad and Father-In-Law), "proof"condition 1899 US Morgan Silver Dollars when I got married in 1999. Those are some killer lookin' axes.

    I sell bodies through appropriate channels. I don't think I'm allowed to talk about selling on here. If my life plays out like the movie I have playing in my head, anyone will eventually be able to buy bodies I make, through a custom shop at some giant guitar company down the street from where I currently live...

    man, I need a freind like you. thats very special and truly how gifts for freinds should be, stores don't always sell things that truly can explain how grateful someone is towards another- I hope they all see a lifetime of use.

    Cut it myself from the templates I mentioned in the OP. The material was guitarfetish.com's mint green.
