Except for the saddle slot jig. That one was frustrating. It took me too long to figure out that the sled needed to ride on a wedge. duh

Here is a picture of my homemade drum sander. The adjustment mechanism is hinged inside the framework and provides support across the entire width of the table.

I was waiting for a fretboard to arrive and was at a point where I couldn't proceed without it, so last weekend I started #3. I'll post pics of the binding jig in action on that one.

Thanks, Todd. I couldn't talk Bill at Axiom into cutting the tortoise into .020" strips for the center ring, so I cut down a .060" binding strip on a router table. Yeah, it was fun.
