Started buliding my own side-bender

After having built my first 4 guitars using a manual (sort of “pipe”) side bender I decided it was about time to industrialize the process.

Not to speed-up the building process, but to add consistency in the shaping of the sides.

I also recently bought some very structured Brazilian Rosewood (will post some pictures of the raw wood shortly), and my new side-bender should help reduce the risk of cracking one of these fragile sides during the bending process…
