    Thanks. I was quite surprised to see that you can apparently get G-10 as thin as .009!!!!! Thats some thin stuff!!!. Is the .020 stuff thick enough that you need to bevel the edges at 45 when you mate it up at 90 degrees?

    I haven't beveled any, I just overlap. It's not as correct this way but it's easier to get a clean fit.

    I'm glad that you like it Aaron.

    Did the blister koa turn out like you expected? It was a total mystery to me.

    What could possibly be more correct than a clean fit?

    Blister koa was a mystery to me too. It does have a really cool holographic effect when you look at it. I think it's definitely a unique choice.
    I was afraid the denser wood would throw the balance off. I was very happily surprised when I held it, it feels really good.
