Here’s more progress:

Faceplate for the peghead.




Cutting the rough shape out on the bandsaw.




Getting the exact shape with the chisel.




Purfling the peghead.




More tomorrow.

If I may be so bold to ask a question, when refining the shape of the peghead and using the chisel which I would be afraid might find a piece of grain it would like to follow and end up taking out a chunk that was not meant to come it, would it be appropriate to take that to a disc sander or something of the like and lay it flat on the table and sand it to the line?

I hope the fingers under those bandages are intact! (4th Photo.)

Getting the top purfling with a Teflon spacer installed. Afterwards we will pull the Teflon and slide in some curly mahogany to match the rosette.

Holy Moly! It works! I am having second thoughts about the teflon purfling though. Is it too late to change that out?

Is today just Sunday? Seems like it's been a month since the binding went on. I hope you post pics of the curly mahogany purfling going in - I'm curious how you go about that. I don't imagine it comes in 4 ft. lengths like the binding, does it?

We will post pics of that happening. Unfortunately, we had some shop work to take care of today, so all I have is this sloppy picture of glue smeared around the joint we’re fitting. More soon.

Sorry to be late with your answer, Tom. This shot was taken after the belt sander got the shape close. I switched to a chisel here for the final slivers because of the sense of control. I'm not worried about taking out a chunk here due to the angle of attack--I'm slicing across fibers, not into them. I'm sure as a surgeon you can appreciate what a sharp tool can accomplish!

Thanks for your concern Stan. Those "bandages" are actually masking tape protectors, which give me a reckless confidence working around CA glue.

Almost, but not quite. Pics of that step soon.

Here’s more pictures of...binding!

It’s a lot of work. So sorry Stan.

Measuring straight lines and making them square.




All bound up.




Pointing up.




Trimmed peghead.




Thanks for looking.

Default Square is good.

In places. No Bo Diddley guitars for me! It's looking great - the peghead is squared away nicely! I'm still puzzling over what would work best for the logo. Would the bubinga from the rosette work? Probably not enough contrast. Curly mahogany? Gold pearl?

We went with Gold MOP on my most recent. It really is stunning! I think that every time I open the case. Not a bad default in your decision making process.

Here’s the obligatory leveling shot:




I like the Gold pearl idea, but we need the fretboard inlay to fit the scheme too. So let’s make sure it all works together. Once the mahogany gets inlaid, I bet we’ll have a better grasp of the whole.
