Default Loggerenguitars (Amateur) Deep Body OM#1

Hi Everyone, now I'm going to post a building thread of my long awaited third acoustic guitar build, Deep Body OM#1, which I'm currently working on the final finish:

Specs
Top: Engelman
Bracing: X-bracing, sitka spruce
Back&Sides: Kiaat (African timper), Comes in a variety of colors and grain patterns.
Fretboard&bridge: Rhodesian teak
Binding: Quilted mahogany
Neck: 5 piece laminate - Mahogany/Maple/Kiaat(Centre)
Scale length: 25.4"

Please excuse some of the photo's poor quality!

I wanted a lot of sapwood in this one, but must admit the back didn't end up such a good book match as it started out as I would have liked it to be.


Sides being soaked for bending. I use a primitive method of heating a pipe.




Solid curving installed, with my 3-piece Charles fox kind of a neck block.




Back getting ready.










Rosette, I wanted something natural looking


Inside



Purfling being installed, same wood as the rosette(Kiaat), I haven't mentioned it.

I will post better images once I'm done with the finish and give my final verdict with a sound clip(hopefully).

Thanks for watching and allowing me!!

Cheers

Picture quality is fine just needs to be scaled down in size. At least the big ones.

If you keep the images 1000 pixels wide or smaller, the viewing experience is better for your audience.
