Making the Soundboard Body
Once Nick retrieved his dad's jigsaw (and some gray paint and sandpaper), the wooden soundboard was ready to be made. On Saturday, November 21, Nick, Kyle, Ryan, and Mike got together to make the body. First, a pattern was drawn on the 1" x 12" x 2' long piece of wood. The pattern was cut out using a jigsaw, and the edges were sanded down to give it a finished look. Several layers of the gray paint were applied to the nifty-looking soundboard to give it a little bit of color. The body of the instrument and the other materials were given to Kyle so that he could build the rest of the guitar over break.
