Building My Electric Guitar - Routing The Body Edges

Next I routed the edges of the guitar body.  However I had a concern about the one very thin side of the neck pocket. I felt that it would break off if I tried to round off the top edge. The photo below shows what I am talking about.

What I decided to do was to cut a piece of scrap wood that would simulate the neck of the electric guitar. This would give this edge of the guitar's neck pocket enough strength to withstand the router.

The photo below shows the guitar's neck pocket with the wood insert.
