Made another full size one. its sligtly different at the top. it was easier to cut but not easier to shape the top. i need to make a form to shape it properly. the first one was easier to shape but had bandsaw cuts to get square corners. Flat spots on the wings are why the one popped forward. That wont happen with a formed end.
Update to length 6-3/16 oal. i have no idea where i measured 5 lol. http://s325.photobucket.com/albums/k...0-14-31-58.mp4
.785 is WAAAAYYYY to thin. its like tinfoil. and it makes a horrible resonance on the lathe. had to stick my fingers in my ears.
