I’m going to try my hand at making a stick soon and I’m pretty much set for what I need to do with regards to getting the box built and button holes and stuff but what I’m really stuck on planning out is mounting the stick. I’m thinking of using a Seimitsu LS-32-01. I’ve read the various stick building threads and see two terms that confuse me. Top Mounting and Bottom Mounting, what are they? And what pros and cons are there for both? Also how do I go about cutting a hole in the middle of my 1 inch block of MDF? All I have at my disposal right now is a power drill and a miter saw and I can’t figure out how to do that with those tools.
Thanks in advance.
