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

Progress! Box is closed up and bound.



Take it from the top.



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



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.

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:
