Don't Know What I'm Doing...

...but it's not like that's ever stopped me before. I abandoned the purpleheart and bubinga core and instead went with three layers of bamboo. Horizontal grain running lengthwise on the top and bottom and vertical grain running perpendicular in the middle. Even though the veneers are listed as 1/8" they measure a little thicker making the total thickness ~1/2". It's pressed up so that there's a 1 1/2" arc over the 47" of material that I've got set up. Shannon's going to come over a little later today and drop some knowledge about how I should be setting it up when I'm ready to start cutting and drilling. Hopefully this isn't all for naught, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
