A luthiers tip from Ben Crowe at http://www.crimsonguitars.com
A modern guitar builder will use double sided tape many times through their week and most of us grow to loathe and hate it, with a passion!
Double sided tape is often too strong and it is hard to separate your template and the guitar, or it is too thick and their is some give when using your bearing-cutter and router to finalize the guitars body shape. It often will leave a sticky, hard to remove, detritus on your work, jig or template and sometimes just fails and helps ruin the guitar you are working on.
We have a stunningly successful double-sided tape alternative that we use at Crimson Guitars and it has replaced the use of double sided tape and spray glues in our workshops.. watch this video to find out more!
