COLUMN Dan's Guitar RX
8) With an acrylic guard protecting the top,
he routed away epoxy and any wood that had
absorbed epoxy.
9) Once the routed area was clean enough
to patch, Chris used a sharp chisel to bevel
the underside of the top at a slight angle to
provide sufficient overlap for a spruce patch
to hold up under load.
10) The first patch, glued from below.
11) Chris routed away the bad spruce and
old epoxy, then installed top patches on the

inside with thin pieces of spruce overlapping onto the actual top. We also made a
thin, hard maple bridge plate to support
the bridge area - yes, it was larger than
the original, but did the job.
12) We supported the shoulders and
lower bout on paper-covered wood
blocks, which allowed us to apply clamps
while we installed the top patches. Two
sandbags acted as ballast to keep the body
still and solid while we worked.

Next month, we'll make and install a new
bridge and touch-up the finish.
