Yesterday I deemed my shop environment hydrated for long enough to get back to work on this guitar, so I made the braces and put some of them in. I am particularly pleased with my rosette back up plate as it is actually carved into a form to double as bracing to support the tendency guitars have to fold up across the soundhole. A close look will reveal that it is typically thin in the middle and 3x as thick toward the edges. My SteelString soundhole braces have shared this aspect for years.
