Easiest way to make a semi hollow body

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by ChaosGwar, Sep 13, 2002.


  1. One of my next projects is going to be a through neck of purpleheart, with ovankol body wings. Since both are fairly heavy woods, I was considering a semi holow body style, and carving in some F holes. What is the easiest way to go about hollowing out the wings?

    Thanks

    already there

    You'll have to use at least a top...

    In your case, I would go with a ligth wood body core (hollowed) and ovangkol top an back.
