Drawn with markers on cardboard. Not final but it’ll do for now.

This summers lap steel build
Bending plywood went ok. Theres a small crack in one of the bends but it’s merely visible so I went along and put it together. And it actually sounds fine! I’m allways prepared for the worst with my rudimentary knowledge in the matter and my cheapness when it comes to what materials I use. The body of this guitar is also much thinner than my last one but It still sounds full size. Will compare them when I have them both in the same

Alternate bending method
Tried another method. Plywood piece placed in a barrel of Water for ten minutes. Then warmed the curve with a heat gun while slowly bending. Worked fine too! Heat gun set to 170 C°.

I wanted to know if it's possible to bend plywood so I put together an improvised steambox. And yes, It works! I was afraid the steam would disolve the glue in the plywood but it looks like it didn't. Now I can build acoustic lap-steels without corners.

This is my latest build. Cheap plywood but it sounds fine. My next one will not have corners though.
