Kerfed Lining Jig

Taking the summer off building so I can get other stuff done of my DIY home improvement list and get out and have some fun, but I also have a list of jigs to build over the summer.. I have a different style of kerfed linings I want to start using ao I need a way to make them myself.. step 1 make a jig to cut the kerfs.. not my idea there are lots out on the internet, this one is based on one form here:

I like it because it is self contained once adjusted it should stay that way and not need much tweaking.. seems to work.....

Second Parlour Guitar Done

Parlour Guitar #2 is done.... Made with more traditional wood choices. Cedar & Indian Rosewood with a Mahogany neck & Rosewood Fingerboard.. I think it sounds a bit fuller than the Pacific Parlour but I am surprised at how close they do sound for radically different woods..

Here are a few more photos of the Pacific Parlour for comparison..

First One Done

Whew, the first of the two Parlour Guitars is done!... The one I'm calling a Pacific Parlour, because it's primary woods are all found close to the Pacific Ocean; Koa, Arbutus (Madrona) & Narra..

The first notes on it sound good, clean & mellow decent but not amazing sustain. I'll do some better photos on hopefully a sound sample soon..

Now just need to finish the other one..
