OK, here's an update ..
A jig for locating material and machining both sides .. Red circles are pins that locate jig to table. Yellow, Blue & Green circles are pins that locate material to jig. 

Other pics are roughed neck, partially finish carved body ..

Thanks Jammerm,

Not sure exactly what finish will wind up on this guitar ..

There's some talk about going opaque on the back and a sunburst on the front .. well see.  I'll post more when we're there.
