Most of the straight lines on the peghead and fretboard were cut on my mini pin router with a .023" fret slotting bit. It went surprisingly smoothly but I did go through a few bits. Doing it by hand could certainly work but it would be a lot more difficult to do all the short lines and end them cleanly. Good luck with your parlor.
Great info sir and thanks!

As I said in the No. 99 thread, I don't know which of these two guitars that I am
going to keep yet. I will only know, once I have the opportunity to audition them. So this guitar might (key word) be available for sale if I prefer No. 99 over No.100 (TBD). So you or others might have an opportunity to quench your "GAS" in October. If you are potentially interested in this guitar, I would let Kent know directly.

That rosette is just exquisite!
Your decision between the two guitars could be very difficult to make.... maybe a few of us should come and help
