    Some short vids documenting various parts of the build progress.

    This may not be the best way in the world to build basses but it is the way I worked it out.

    More on the way. Mellow will run out fairly quickly. I am using stuff I recorded many years ago so things will take a darker turn fairly soon.

    Nice! What are your templates made of? 1/2" MDF? Acrylic? Did you get them CNC'd , or did you just cut them on the bandsaw/router?

    Got to protect yourself while building in this case lungs and hearing both of which I make frequent use of and would like that to remain the case.
    Most are made from 12mm MDF but I coat the edges that the router uses with epoxy which makes them hard enough to resist wear. I also have some made from acrylic and a few in tufnol and aluminium. The MDF ones I make myself with the bandsaw and finish by hand it is dealt with in the previous vid. The tufnol ones I got done on a friends cnc and the alloy ones are done at my local engineers.

    Thank you very much!!! Everyone learns skills differently but for me watching something being done by a master is by far the best way.I'm also impressed that you are willing to share this unselfishly, many wouldn't!!

    No trouble, but certainly not a master. Self taught so as I said in the first post this may not be the best way to do it and I am sure actual masters of the craft are having a good laugh at my attempts.
