WELL, I really just hate the tension. I just love it when I have successfully cut the grooves for the bindings, but the exercise is so fraught with potential disaster. First you must set the router exactly right so the groove is not too deep or too wide. I always make test cuts on a piece of scrap. Then you must make the cuts with great care as a change in angle, or a lurch could ruin the instrument beyond repair, But oh boy! when you are finished, and were successful, it really feels wonderful and you don't hate the procedure at all. Well I just succeeded in doing the first one, Trey's Koa, Cedar. It looks great. Now to do the other two and start bending binding. Whew!
