Mistake # 2
I rushed through cutting the excess of the veneer.. At first I was using the exacta blade then got lazy and started to use my fingers..
I bent the veneer back and forth against the body and broke it off.. It actually broke off pretty cleanly in most places... But the places that did NOT break off cleanly look horrible..
I can not stress enough to "Take your time" and Absolutley do NOT Rush... This by far the most time consuming and tedious part of the process..
Since I put both sides of the Veneer on before cutting.. I had to poke a hole in the middle of the cavity to get started on the trimming... As you can see from the pic below a section of the veneer came off while trying to poke the hole...
