Thanks.
Just a sketch

front and back of laminated beech with mahogany veneer glued on it.
A core out of something else, also the few points where it is important to have some extra support for the two wings.

Looks like it's going to belong on a spaceship:p

Sounds like an ambitious project, and i can't wait to see it!

I started doing this with a top and a back for an acoustic guitar: but only the outer line, just to be sure it is always big enough.

And now ... It does not take more time, so with 2 lines I cut in the middle :p
I think it is just a little autistic tick I have.
That's why I like watching little shop tours on You tube: You will notice you're not the only one with those ticks :D
