Flush Trimming the Top and Bottom

Before I put the binding on I need to get the top and bottom flush with the sides. As you can see below there is overlap on both. Bottom:
I was so excited to use my new router (xmas gift from my family – thanks Mom and Creig!). What a great tool this thing is smooth and doesn't have the initial kick that other routers give.

Smooth as can be... No chip-out, just perfect. One thing to note for anyone using a router on guitars. Always go from the top of the hill to the valley – (big bout to the waist, little bout towards the neck) this keeps the router from splitting the wood. At least that's what I've read.

Hope to start in on the binding soon!
