Body Contours

Body Contours

This is how we cut our body contours. It is very quick and efficient. We've found that some body styles will not work using this technique. If your body shape won't fit in the band saw correctly you might find yourself rasping the whole contour.

Tools Needed:
Bandsaw
Rasp
Sander

Draw the Contours


Mark out where you want the contours to be with a pencil.

Cut Contour


Using a band saw (preferably a 14") cut along the line for the contour as shown.

Rasp and sand the contour


Now, Rasp the contour to smooth out all the roughness that the bandsaw left. It helps to clamp the body to your workbench. Sand out all the rasp marks and your done!
