I remember why I don't like carving burl. It carves too fast.
I am not a fan of straight lines ... nice carves are concave. Nice carves are not made with routers.
This is going to take a while...
What a mess
Carve roughed in. Still a lot of sanding to do.
Cutting the bobbins for the Multiscale 7s.
What a mess part 2
A sense of scale.
Bass Pickups don't look like much right now.
I had to true the edges by hand because I didn't leave it on the CNC until it was cut out.
Starting the carve with a guide route.
Zebrawood carves like a dream with a sharp scraper.
This thing is huge. Yet it balanced out and doesn't feel heavy or awkward. The neck stays in a very comfortable upward position.
I guess the neck pocket is tight enough. Better than the "hold the body above the desk" picture.
