on the workbench...
  • Bolivian rosewood rosette in mahogany top
  • walnut dred for a friend
  • Walnut crotch figure rosette on Sitka
  • Start of a black walnut and Sitka dread for a friend
  • mahogany top getting braced up
  • Necks, necks, necks
  • I put padauk bindings on the small jumbo, hated it, routed them off and went back with maple. These are the ones that came off. Live and learn.
  • box closed up on the walnut dred
  • showing the new maple bindings going on. much better than that ugly padauk
  • mortise and tenons cut on the small jumbo and the all-mahogany OM. still have to work on the final fitting to the body and then carve the necks. Exciting to see the necks going on though.
  • OM. Indian Rosewood b/s with a very nice Sitka top I picked up from Steve K.
  • Small jumbo. Peruvian walnut b/s with Sitka top. Padauk rosette and bindings going on this one.
  • Padauk on Sitka
  • All Honduras mahogany OM with Bolivian rosewood bindings and rosette. Lots of brown colors and honey tones on this one.
  • end wedges done. the cuts for the padauk got away from me so this one got enlarged :)
  • Made a go-bar deck to start getting this type of thing done
