Question (WOODWEB Member) :
I need to make a body blank for somebody. It is a double guitar and need to be 24" on each side. The client wants 1/4" zebrawood on each side with a mahogany core that is 1 1/2". My plan is to cut pieces of ZW 5/16" on the bandsaw and glue the machined side down to the mahogany core using ultra cat ppr glue. Then put the glue up in the vacuum bag. Once dry sand the ZW back down to 1/4" and 2" thick. Does anybody see anything wrong with the process? What is the best way to keep the pieces of ZW from sliding while in the bag?
From contributor L:
Les would approve. I would be hesitant to make the assembly with 1/4" thick material. It may be ok. I have tried multiple thickness bent laminations with mahogany that worked (no movement). Use shorter 23g pins to hold it in place while in the vacuum press.
