About This Class

This class teaches you how to to put the final touches on a guitar headstock with a carved crown.

While designing the crown pattern and then cutting it into the headstock seem like a daring work process, the true artistry begins when putting the final touches (bevels) on the crown. The bevels act much like an outline or emphasis of the existing pattern, and give it its elegance.
