I'm building an archtop mando for the build challenge and I have no idea how to voice one of these. Any general (or specific ) guidelines? This mando resembles an archtop guitar with a cutaway. It's 9 1/4" wide and 13" long. The top is 3/4" tall and is thicknessed to 1/8" on the sides to 1/4" under the bridge. Most of the top is at 3/16" thick. Any tips?

Thanks,
Steve

Actually Steven , I have never tried to . I get it as close to what I want as I can and build . I would contact Chris Oliver , he should be able to shed some light on your question.
