Default New builds for US shows

Work got a bit sidetracked in the last few days but I managed to squeeze in some late nights...
The Columbia top ready to be voiced

And the backstrip on the Thames prepped for the back braces. I went for a cedar strip to match the top

The ribs for the Columbia get some double kerfed boxwood linings to keep the light color theme even on the inside. You can also spot the solid reinforcement for the Ryan style bevel

On the Thames I went for mahogany liners and a Laskin style bevel... itís the first time I tackle a Laskin bevel... fingers crossed

Fitting the top to the ribs

And the top is on. Tomorrow Iíll do some extra voicing and then the box will be closed!
