Let´s take a look at my workbench.
To bring the designs to life I mostly use common tools like planes, chisels, carving files and blades.
Beside these I use a small bandsaw, a drilling-machine and of course a router.
If I need templates, I get them CNC-milled.
To combine modern technology with traditional craftmanship, there are multiple options like laser cutting, laser engraving, etching and more.
There are many ways to build your dream guitar. Remember that is all your decision.
