    Well, I had a crack with multiplex for the first time some time ago. One of the things that is a bummer is that I can't find any multiplex with thin layers - so you don't get the best pattern. Anyway, I downloaded a template and came up with this. Since then I have been focussing on naturals, but this is OK for a first crack I reckon. Only thing is that the thumb and finger supports for a choke grip are slightly too wide.

    Single band .030 will work like a charm on that.

    It ended up being a lot thinner than I was expecting it to be for sure. I will only use a single band on it - nothing too heavy.
