I measured up 10 finished clefts from the supplier, and calculated the density of each. Then I took the average density across the 10 as my target. This average was 0.42 g/cm3 to be exact. As I say, I don't know the moisture content of the 10 clefts, but as they were supplied to a batmaker, it is fair to assume that they are suitable for use.

Got it. That makes sense to my peanut sized brain now. Establishes a baseline. I guess i just struggle with it being such an exact.. inexact science. If that makes sense. Im probably just best with a drawknife instead of a calculator in my hands.. ha!

So far the density is between 0.62 and 0.70 g/cm3. I think - don't quote me on this - the lower down the tree, the higher the density. My target is approx. 0.4 g/cm3.

The first batch of clefts have each already lost 500g in weight. So things are moving in the right direction. I'll keep you up to date with developments.

Best wishes, Justin

PS. Where's the photos of the Distinction?

Great stuff Justin (apologies I thought your name was John!!!) - I've upload some photos of the distinction later tonight. I want to rework the toe area at some point as I'm not happy with the way it looks and I think it needs trimming down a bit. The pickup is still excellent though!
