Robbie and Kent, I just finished my first arm bevel using your method. Thanks for making the instructions available. I followed the instruction and "what do know" it worked! Thanks Steve
I built a new guitar recently with a design I did from scratch. On this guitar I used the directions in your arm bevel video and the directions from your french polish course. Both were great and easy to follow. Mark in Colorado
I would never have known where to start without this video. Thanks to Rob and Kent for making the course available. Chris - Australia
I’m starting guitar number 3, this time with the Everett arm bevel video, and really can’t express how much this hobby has come to mean to me. Thanks for putting together such a rich library of resources. Sean
Thanks so much for putting your teaching videos together and making them available! The Arm Bevel course allowed me to achieve my first bevel on my last build, and it wouldn't have been possible without the course you and Kent Everett put together. Shawn
