Nut slot cut cut at this early stage - when things are still square! - brilliant!

OK - it makes so much sense it's probably the standard way of doing it - but I hadn't thought of it.

Thanks Jay, you made my day. (I know I should get out more)

yeah, drawing everything up when its still square, including the center line and any fret slots needed, is a lot  easier. all these photos and more are on my blog, if you're interested in more process shots.
