Wow, Thanks Chris, much appreciated. Sorry I didnt respond earlier. A Paypal will be on its way soon.

Thanks again,Bill

Thanks again. These dimensions and Photos will be very helpful. I am going to attempt to make this one myself, If I struggle I will definitely look into your CNC connection.

Thanks Chris, You have been a big help.

Hi Chris,

I received the purfling yesterday. Looks like it will work very well. I will probably pull of the green and replace with some Black but otherwise should work great. I will send photos when I get it installed. Now I just need to find some extra wide ivoroid.Thanks again,
