Starting the Finishing Process

Working on the Archtop, the pore fill is done and now the finish coats can be applied.. Royal Lac hardened shellac. Not sure how many coats I'll apply will stop when it looks good.

The beauty of Royal ac is it is more durable than regular shellac and you can actually wet sand it to level the coats...

Two Parlours

While the weather & the humidity has been good, I got the sides bent for the tow parlour guitars I'm working on and glued the to the blocks.. Now all I have to do it wait for the humidity to go down again so I can get the boxes closed.

I the mean time I'll put some finish on the Archtop :-)

All the parts for the bodies

New Jig I made for holding the sides in shape as the blocks are glued up
