Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    I bought the round rasp a couple of months ago and I find it to be very useful! I used it to smooth out the body contours on both my templates and body blank. I'm sure I'll use it for other jobs as well!
    I think it's a definate must on the list of tools to own.

    I use the flat one more than the round. The drill press ones don't cut the mustard for me though....T

    Man, I bought some of those last time I went to Woodcraft. I snapped both of em within minutes of trying to carve some really hard jujube wood.!! I'm sticking with my trusty yellow handled one i bought from Orchard Supply. I remember they were nice and sharp for the few minutes they did last though. Wish I could sharpen my yellow-handled one.
