**Thanks TV**

Just had time to open a mystery parcel this morning. 

@tv101 Thanks very much for these routing templates, a LP is definitely on my todo list. At some point I will need some of those stepped templates for the carving bit on the top but I need to do my homework on how to build a LP first. There is a lot of research needed first before I can even think about cutting any wood. 

I really appreciate this T, it has inspired me to make it happen. 👍 

 

I love the wonky bit. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

You're welcome @Boo.

 

I was going to recut the wonky one, but then realised that I didn't have any more of that ply knocking around.

And you'd want to do your own thing with the control cavity and layout anyway.  Won't you??

I'm hoping to find a CNC plan that I can use for that.  I've done a couple of carved top LPs/LP-alikes, and the carving/sanding took longer than the rest of the guitar!

In between work and taking the cat to the vet, I’ve been sanding this ridiculous thing today, I’ll flow coat it over the weekend. 
P600 grade on the sander. 👍

@tv101 No probs, I can make a cavity routing template, it’s not too critical to get the shape absolutely cnc perfect for it. For the first LP I build though, I think I’ll make it as standard as I can, just to get a feel for it. 

Thanks again, really appreciate it. (I owe you) 👍

@jonhodgson I got these recently for my angle grinder, one concave, one convex. 😁 Fun times.

@boo You can get ones with holes in them which when they spin makes the disk almost transparent so you can see what you're doing.

I haven't tried them myself yet, but I met a guy who'd used them on a course at Crimson (it's their goto method) and he didn't seem to be able to fathom why anybody would use any other method, so they're on my to-purchase list for the second guitar on my build plan, which will have a carved top (there's a part of me that likes the idea of getting a collection of gouges and mini planes, but quite frankly if I did that I'd probably never finish).

Yes, they will remove wood at a prodigious rate (and they come in different grits, so some are even more prodigious than others), but I think that because the tool does all the work for you, you can put pretty much 100% effort into directing it rather than having to put energy into the cutting.

Let us know how you get on!

Hmmmmm @jonhodgson - I think I'll try working with the CNC machine first!

Though I can imagine it being the sort of approach that Crimson would use.  Not criticising them at all, just in the sense of them trying new approaches/techniques in what and how they build.

@tv101, if you have a CNC machine, then fair enough.
Crimson use theirs for their production line models, it's the one offs and student builds that use the angle grinder method. They're not unique in doing that though, there's a reason that Saburrtooth have a complete range of carving discs for angle grinders and carving attachments for dremel type tools too.

They’re brave - letting students loose with an angle grinder on a course build!
