I finished my first arm bevel and I am please with how it came out. I followed Kent Averett's method from Robbie O'Brien's website. I might have made it a little longer, but there is always next time.

Thanks guys. I guess I can follow instructions... BTW - I meant to say Everett not Averett. I am also pleased that my miters came out pretty good. This build has been pretty complex (for me) with the arm bevel and the Florentine cutaway...

The bevel is really slick but the miters are more impressive to me. Good job

I really admire someone taking on a bevel! So far I just haven’t gotten up the nerve. Great job and fine work there!

Hey Steve, that turned out really great. I was going to attempt one on my latest build but time was tight on my completion date I had set for myself so it is a future project. Is this build sold yet?

It looks great, Steve. Are the bevel and the bindings the same wood species? The transition in looks good in that pic I assume the transition out is just as nice. It's something I want to do as well.

Tim - this build is not sold. I'm just building it because I want to...

Brad- the binding and the bevel are both indian rosewood.
