MLK day I’m off, bought a new router as the old one seized up, routed out the back of the bass guitar. Just a cheap Ryobi from HD. I’ve rigged it with the plastic plate for patterning out the pickups.
The back is hollowed out enough to keep it light.
I’ll glue in two cedar panels and screw the last one in for electrics access. I may need to get some purfling to hide the gaps in the router cuts, make it better.
I also cut out a pattern for the pickups, clamped and drying.
A batch of beef stew and a chicken veggie with barley soup, set for lunches for the rest of the week.
