Additions:
~1) Take a look at **Fig. 1.** Using a file, finalize the arching contour of the nut to **1 mm** at **h1** on the G side and **0.75 mm** at **h2** on the E side.
~1) Set your compass to **16.5 mm**, **w1** in **Fig. 3.** and at the top of the nut, mark the outter positions for the G and E strings, leaning a little to the G side so that the E string will have a little more space on the fingerboard.
~1) Set your compass to **5.5 mm** (**w2**) and repeat to mark the inner positions for the D and A strings.
~1) Use a knife to cut through these marks, creating guides for a keyhole file. The guides for D and A strings are straight, those for G and E are cut at a slight angle, see **Fig. 3. ** --- ---Using a four-sided keyhole file, create the final grooves for the strings. Do not make them too deep as the string should only be fixed in position by these grooves, not buried in them. The width of each groove should also reflect the thickness of the string it is to accommodate.
