My Riser Block Kit Finally Arrived!
It took 5 months, but the riser block kit I ordered for my band saw finally arrived. This accessory will allow me to resaw figured Maple boards for bookmatched guitar tops. In the past, I always had to purchase my tops already bookmatched, which can be costly. Plus I was never sure what the boards would look like until they arrived. Now I can carefully select my own billets and resaw them myself. It's an extra step, but worth it in terms of cost and quality control. Right now, I have five flamed Maple billets ready to bookmatch.
