Steve, I believe the reason is that you want to pick the places that the areas NOT to be chopped will fit back together with the least amount of pie cutting-you want the Top and Bottom to match. I'm just finishing my first Chop, and I clearly see things much differently than when I first contemplated it.

If you just chopped it around in a straight line I think there would be a bunch more fab work (even though this type of Body is one of the easier ones to Chop)-
