Minibass: Routing the body shape and laminating the headstock

I have still to design the headstock layout (awaiting the arrival of the machine heads) but I do know that the current headstock will not be wide enough. I cut strips of sapele and the unknown hardwood and glued them to the sides.

While the glue dried, I attached the body template with double sided tape and routed it to shape, first with the top bearing bit…

…then remove the template so that I can cut deeper…

…and then finish off by flipping it over and running round it with a bottom bearing cutter.

and then I just had chance to snap this shot before the rain came.
