Is the intent to be a flush cutaway?

On the front side it should be flush, however since I’m tapering the heel there will be some real estate back there.
I’ll need to bind that top edge I think

I used BWB and figured Bloodwood binding (it has a lot of dark lines in it... pretty rad) MAN that bonding was brittle, but I FINALLY got it installed without too much hair pulling.
Here are some pics of the back scraped down. There are still some high spots (but I was getting tired by this point)
Happy w my mitre!

Nice looking job. The binding really pulls it all together.

Thank you sir... :)
I have a few gaps to address on the sides, but it shouldn’t be much of an issue
