    NEW trick for me

    I learned something new today I thought I would pass on. While making electronics cover out of 3/16 thick maple for the bass I'm building I had to fit the cover to the odd shape rabbit I routed out. Kind of a triangle with a big radius on the long side and like 1" radius on the corners...

    Trick for better water based finish results
