Default Top Purfling

Like the tuner buttons I cut my purfling sticks as I build the guitar. This gives me a better opportunity to match the colors I want to the specific guitar. Here I'm doing the first cut from a Cocobolo board that has all the colors of the rosette.

The binding is glued up with a strip of teflon which gets pulled out. That leaves the space to insert the cross grain purfling sticks.

Did I already say this is my favorite little plane?

Here it is all cleaned up. I'm very happy with the color match!

Thanks for checking it out!
