i’ve built one.

to do the fret board, you’ll need a good sized mill file to flaten your frets and fret file to reround them after they’re flatened. for the bridge pin holes, you need a tapered reamer. if you want the top/backs to be bookmatched, you’ll need a bandsaw with a good resaw capacity. a drum sander would be handy too. i didn’t use one for my guitar, but it made me wish i had one.
