Some wood arrived - the larger pieces are 25 x 25 cm. Should be big enough.
It may not be necessary to route out a big "swimming pool" style hole to replace the timber. I know some people with fancy tools have cnc "readers" that can be used to trace an irregular hole and then use that shape as the template for a CNC cut or routing program. I think spector uses this type of tech to put together their burl tops instead of just bogging the holes in burl with some sort of goo. they use the machine to accurately trace the internal shape of the gaps then cut very tight fitting plugs to fit.
A swimming pool might be more fun though.
I still hope there is a chance that I don't have to do a colored finish. And so maybe the swimming pool solution just looks better.
My wood guy (who is on vacation for the next three months and did my guitar first) has to decide, how he wants to do it and because he'll do it for free, I'm not complaining.
The problem is, the current routings are really badly done. So you would have to plain these first to then ad new wood. I have no idea how that would look.
