I can't see the need for shallow pockets, unless I'm missing something?
Hi James, the real reason for looking at pocking the cork is I can't guarantee I can all ways get the same size of plywood what I have found if you get hat they have in the country at these more thinner sizes, IE anything below 3 is really nominal so of my so call 2 is in fact 2.5 thick and some of my 3 is 3.1 My thinking was if I pocket the cork, I get the option of adjusting the pocket depth to suit, Plus it becomes a perfect location template in its own right, and also helps deaden the sound.
I did wonder if fully burn out pockets would be a dirty job. the slowness I expected.
plan B I will try burning the 4 tight corners of the cork to pocket size and then mill out the main body of the pocket.
