Shop Updates

Lots of stuff going on in the shop! The “Art Guitar” along with another electric are well into the finishing process. Added color to the back of the Art Guitar.CAM00322 CAM00323I also got the artwork back and transferred it to the top.CAM00345I’ve started a couple of Ukuleles. A 22″ scale baritone with Koa back and sides, redwood top and will have rosewood binding, fingerboard and bridge and a walnut neck. The other a soprano with Koa top, back and sides, rosewood fingerboard, binding and bridge and a walnut neck. The two large pieces of wood toward the back of the picture are for an arch top guitar that I will be starting on very soon. To the left is the Koa back and redwood top being joined for the baritone. On the right the Koa for the soprano.CAM00327The sides for the baritone heating up in the side bending jig. CAM00328The sides fit into the mold.CAM00329Baritone sides in the mold with neck and tail blocks in, getting ready for the kerfed linings.CAM00334Braces laid out.CAM00332Sound hole cut, bridge plate gluing on with help from the go-bar deck.CAM00333The top glued on.
