Building a Lap Steel Guitar

Fitting the electronics

Cutting the control cavity

The electronics cavity is made on the side of the plank, as shown in the drawing above.

Pre-drill a 30mm-deep and 60mm-long cavity with a 1" (25mm) Forstner drill bit and finish with a 1"(24mm)-wide chisel.

Finally, use a 1/4" (6mm) bit to drill a channel to connect the pickup cavity with the electronics cavity.
