This weekend I was able to give the body a push.
Last week I glued the maple top following a process I saw on youtube.

For the body, I took the total measurements of the thickness counting the lid, which is 7 mm, so it is necessary to rethicken the body.

Once we have the right thickness, we put the template and start milling! I made a small investment (50€) in two new milling cutters. The main one is a combined cutter (helixoidal and compression) and the other is a copying machine with a bearing at the helical cutting end. I have to say that it is without a doubt a very good investment as the results are exceptional. Look at the ends of the horns, they are made with the milling cutter, without tearing or bites.

I take advantage of the opportunity to make some recesses in the maple top in order to facilitate the rest of the arm.

And this is how it all turned out.

I have to rework the arm rest recess to make the joint perfect.
Cheers!
