    Routed f-hole for my thinline. I used my Dremel router base, freehanded it with a 1/4" bit very close to the line and then used a 1/8" bit riding along the template. I'm happy with it :)

    metecem: That is pretty damn sweet. Korina? The wood grain and the design together make it look amazing. Very impressive. That will be a super axe!

    Thanks guys. It's Ofram and yes white folks call it limba.

    I think this grain will pop well after the clear lacquer.

    Just got this back from the shop. I ended up having them wire it up and do a set up. I didn't have all the parts yet (pots , switch etc..) or the time lately so I figured this was the best way to get it done.

    Now I need to decide what to do with it. It might be taking a trip overseas.
