Having built several instruments I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted everything set up, what I needed in my shop and how often I would be using it. So It didn't take to long to get set up.
I plan to start a little different with this one, do things in a different order. In the past I started with the neck or the top, two of the easier steps. This time I plan to start with the rim, the part that has given me the most trouble in the past.
