Thanks for watching! ;D I'm glad I'm finally following through with this because it's something that I'll always have, and be proud to say I made myself.
The guitar will be done in two weeks...another day like today and I'll be finished modeling and be ready to order material and create the programs.
I'm having a blast, but it's becoming tedious. I don't know how our engineers can do this day after day, for years.
I spent many, many hours today after work hollowing out the bottom "half".
The way it works out is the bottom will be 1" thick and the top will be 1/2".
Here's a few pics of the bottom, almost 100" done, with a bit of color added to show depth.
EDIT: You'll notice the funny surface in the neck pocket. This is because the pocket is "shimmed" or "ramped" as explained previously, and creating a flat surface around the outside of the pocket will allow me to get a Ball Nosed End Mill running back and forth, to create the angled surface. It's an easy fix.
