So, I am going to run up to Woodcraft one day next week to see if I can buy a piece that I can cut to size. I would order it online but I hate to pay the shipping costs for such a small piece of wood. Here are some pictures of the body after the routing and the neck as it sits now.
Here is the neck after a bit more shaping. There still is quite a bit to do but it is getting close to the final shape.
The back went okay but I had a few mishaps with my router. This was the first time I used my hand held router for this. It worked well but I accidentally bumped a couple of spots with the bit. These are two of them Both are a lot smaller than the picture makes them look. They should be easily repaired after the binding is installed.
I had one more bump at the waist. Again, it is smaller than it looks in the picture. I had the camera very close so it would show.
