Death by 1000 cuts

Getting out the old kerfing saw to cut some mahogony lining. The kerfed lining is used to make a better join between the sides and the front/back of the guitar. 

A special cutting box with a depth stop leaves the cut about 0.5mm shy of cutting through. The result is a bendy lining which can conform to the curves of the guitar body.

Now this is tedium. A cut every 5mm along 3 pieces, each 1.5m long makes for 900 cuts! I cleverly taped the three pieces together so only had to repeat the process about 300 times. Joy! 

 Overwhelming urge to keep this pile of mahogony dust…
