    Are you using the CC to carve out the areas for the electronics, and the neck, in the body blank?
    I want to dabble in this a bit, but everyone tells me I need to start with a 14" wide body blank.
    Are you carving those cavities in each half, and then gluing them together?

    I haven't yet been able to get back to using my CW, but I wanted to ask - are you using 'conforming vectors' to carve out the area? (Am I getting the terminology right?) If so (and I might have asked, and received an answer on this already - I just can't find it), do you have it carve a relief with the pattern bit until it gets thick enough to use something like a 1/2" bit, and then have it do the remainder of the cutting? I would assume this is possible, if you configure the lines correctly?
