holes for wiring, what does everyone else do?
Im on my first build, its going pretty good. I am currently carving out pup cavities, next ill flip it over and carve out a control cavity. how does one go about getting wiring tunnels from one pup to the next, then to the control cavity and grounded at the bridge? do you just drill in at a crooked angle? is there a little strategy you use?
btw i don't have a router, the body was cut with a jig saw and then shaped by hand with a rasp... neck pocket and pup cavities are carved with a chisel and some patience...

Long drill bits.

Since I've only built basses with tops I just route the channels before I glue the top on.

Sometimes I go in through the side jack hole with a long (14") drill bit.
Sometimes, if I'm doing a top/back bass, I'll route channels before gluing the top to the back.
My least favorite option is drilling at a shallow angle from the top or back. But it works.

yeah, routing them out before the top goes on seems like the way to go. unfortunately, that would have required some forethought, another tool i don't own yet.
long drill bits it is. i think ill go in from my jack hole nice and straight, it will hit both pups
thanks for the tips guys.

I recommend going garage-sale-ing for a router, and other tools of course. I got mine for $5, it works splendidly.

+1, just be careful with your aim.

I've taken a wire and heated it up with a torch to "drill" weird angle holes
