There have been a lot of interest expressed in building an acoustic guitar. I'll post the progress of the group here along with any tips and jigs.
Here is the workboard that everyone made to get started. I call it a universal workboard because you use dowels (1.25") with a hanger bolt and wing nut inserted in the slots to outline the guitar profile you are building.

Here's the book we are using as our guide.
