The armrest bevel adds quite substantially to the comfort of the guitar, but it's a pain to make. This was my second one, and I might have found a pretty good way to install the 3mm thick maple veneer in its place.
|I used strong double sided tape to hold some 100grit sanding paper in place to shape the both edges of the bevel veneer|
|Then, using very short strokes, I sanded the veneer to the exact shape of the bevel slot. I superglued two pieces of binding as working handles to get a grip of the piece.|
|And here the thing is finally in its place, filed and sanded flush, looking good! The transition from binding to bevel is visible, but hey, who else looks at guitars this close?|
