A small router called a laminate trimmer is helpful in building ukuleles.
Its first use is trimming the overhanging back and soundboard edges flush to the body sides. the router trim bit has a small wheel which rides along the body side. I put blue tape on the side so the cutter leaves a protruding edge the width of the blue tape.
This is a simple but messy job that throws sawdust in all directions, but really quite simple to do.
Now the edges are all trimmed and it is time for the scary job, cutting the binding grooves.
Now with a new bitt and a guiding device on the router the binding groove is cut, very carefully
And now Carla's tenor is ready to receive its bindings.
