I have just scored a half inch thick plank of rose wood for $8.00 from the local wood guy. i want to make a series of ramps(3) that go from my bridge to my neck on my jazz bass. other than measuring it and cutting it to fit, what help can you offer me on shaping my ramps? i have very few tools beyond my mind and my hands but have some connections to get what i need. in return i will post my progress here so everyone can have the knowledge of "how to make a ramp" get set......... go!
