Nice design on those tuners! They look really nice.

Work on the neck commences, starting with a big ol' block of mahogany:

Now that is a "chunk" of Mahogany! :)

The finished rosette on the soundboard. The entwined "tails" of the design will carry over onto the fretboard later.

Cool stuff! :)

Looking good!

Looking great! I follow beauhannamguitars on instagram, great guy/builder. He does a mean end graft.

Chipotle 07-13-2020 11:16 PM

Progress! Box is closed up and bound.

Take it from the top.

And as Beau wrote me, "Your butt as of 5:12 today." :lol:

This is just the "base" for the end graft. As amohr put it, he does a mean end graft, and I'm going to let him work some magic on it.

wow beautiful build by Beau. Iíve been following his YouTube channel, pretty amazing work!

I love that rosette! Looks to be a stunner of a 00!

Starting to look like a guitar.

Beau also used the neck for this guitar to make a video showing how he routs the truss rod channel, if you're interested:
