    I made a carver's mallet while I'm waiting for a bridge for my bass project.

    Started rough carving my Streamer project. I might have to make a recess for the bridge like the old Warwicks with the 1-piece bridge have. I'm leaving that part for when my Kickass bridge arrives. I also have a long contour gauge and a set of violin maker's planes on order, but they could take a couple of weeks to get here.

    I have a Korean neck that I got several years ago from the GFS warehouse buyout, but the project it was meant for never happened. And that's what started this whole mess, I can't just leave a fully functional neck on the shelf :D

    Here is a Router Table I have been working on and
    a Thicknessing Jig for guitar bodies. I have no Idea if it works.
    I fail to see how you can get any kind of accuracy out of a jig like that , but maybe I'll get lucky?

    Oh and then it was like 90° in my shop. :eek:
