I’m making some progress, quite slowly though. It took me several months to complete the truss rod route – but it could have been done in 2 days of proper work, or in 10 minutes with a router.

Meanwhile, I’ll probably start cutting the body.

Tomorrow I’m handing in my final project for my CS studies. This project is built in C#, and I was looking for a way to automatically create documentation that will aid browsing and understanding the main classes and their functions.
A friend had told me about Sandcastle and I looked it up. Sandcastle is a project by Microsoft, that is intended to create MSDN-style documentation from .NET assemblies…
