Hey guys, I’ve just thinned out my headstock down to 15mm and am getting ready to carve out the slope next.  How does this look? Should I leave as is and proceed with carving or make the slope steeper by routing more maple off, I.e. receded closer towards the nut?

"I was just a little nervous about chasing a flaw that really didn't matter too much in the big picture..." as bpower said...

my sentiments, exactly...i'm going to carefully sand it away,,,feather it in - call it hand, not with a router as I'm still getting reacquainted with that power tool; it makes sawdust - like RIGHT NOW!

thanks for the advice ya'll
