Cavity routing

Cutting out the cavity on the back now, for fitting the electronics. I've tried to reuse the curves from other parts of the guitar design, and even got to use the radius cutting thing of my router. Finished up the cut with a hand knife, as I wasn't happy with the way some of the curves met.

I also drilled through from the cavity to the pickup, using an old bit and brace drill that belonged to my grandfather. I found that was the easiest way to carefully drill through without losing control or scratching anything that I didn't want scratched.
