Easiest way to make a semi hollow body

  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?

    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.

  3. Thanks for the link JP, I must have missed it when I ran a search.
