1. A method for harvesting a graft having at least an implant interface surface, a bone interface surface, and a planned spatial geometry therebetween, the method comprising:

  • obtaining a cut guide instrument specific to a patient'"'"'s anatomy;

    resurfacing an exposed surface of a donor bone by installing a guide rod on the donor bone and moving a resurfacing tool on the guide rod to form one of the implant interface surface and the bone interface surface of the graft;

    securing the cut guide instrument to the bone relative to the resurfaced exposed surface by sliding the cut guide instrument along the guide rod and into abutment with the exposed surface;

    performing a depth cut in the donor bone to form the other of the implant interface surface and the bone interface surface of the graft with the planned spatial geometry; and

    harvesting the graft from the donor bone.
