Closing up a box.

Marking the top brace pockets with a dental probe.




Got to get the label in...




Then the scavenger clamps have to eat their fill.




Then we trim up the top to the sides and take a look.




Pretty good so far. Thanks for watching!

Well, it is a rather compact guitar, so it will be easy to travel with. And you'll want to show it off, yes?

Thanks Justonwo! Here’s some pics of neck and fretboard work.

Gluing up the laminated neck: mahogany, wenge, and maple.




And then all cleaned up:




Routing a fretboard for purfling.




Gluing on that little black/white line.




Sanding a radius into the fretboard.




Thanks for following.
