« Part 3: Carving the Top Part 4 of A long running project nears completion series Part 5: The Neck »

Once the top surface was carved and scraped to final shape, I flipped it over and using my drill press and a homemade depth gauge, drilled many holes in the bottom to an even depth. Then I repeated the process with the gouge, spokeshave, finger plane, and scraper. Afterward, the braces were cut from Spanish Cedar and individually shaped and sanded to fit the underside of the top. I also installed a passive pickup before gluing on the top.
