• Acoustic....Radius Dishes??? | The Canadian Guitar Forum

     · Here''s a photo of me sanding the kerfing in a 15'' radius dish in preparation for gluing the back: Somewhat the same for the top although the radius is usually greater (26-28'' foot). One caveat. For the top I only curve the upper bout portion of the X-bracing and the kerfed liner. Why?

  • Making a CNC''ed Radius Dish

     · On my dishes I apply a piece 80 grit pressure adhesive sandpaper so the dish can be used for sanding or for use on the go bar deck. When I use the dish on the go bar deck I just cover the sandpaper with the paper I peeled off the back of the sandpaper when I applied it to the dish. That protects the wood being pressed in the go bar deck.

     · Thought I''d share this cool way to build your own radius-sanding blocks. This is a 12" radius block. First, use a piece of MDF or plywood (whatever you have) and attach your router to one end. Mine is just as wide as the router and about 22" long. Then from the center of the router bit, mark the length of each radii you want to make.

  • Schultz Guitars: Making a 30'' Sanding Dish

     · I know that most people say you don''t need a sanding dish, but I can see the advantages of having one since it can be used for both truing up the sides and bracing the top/back. So I thought I''d give it a try for the 30 foot radius dish used for the top. After thinking about it for a few days, I came up with what I thought was the quickest and easiest way to do it.

     · The surface came out much smoother than expected so minimal sanding will be required. The radius dish will be used to build a slight arch into the tops of ukuleles and someday maybe a guitar or two. The 28 foot radius guide rails will be swapped out for a 15 foot pair to make another dish for assembly of arched backs. UPDATE (10/7/2019}:

     · Creating a jig for cutting a Radius dish is an interesting problem. Firstly, bending up a 32″ spline by 0.5″ for a 25′ radius is not quite correct; this dimension (known as the sagitta of the arc) is actually a little less than 0.5″, 10.845mm in fact (it''s easier to measure in mm at this small dimension).
