More Rosette Work

Been doing a bit more work on the Crossover guitar rosette. It's done now except for a little bit of cleanup. I thin it turned out good, not how I originally designed it but good. I need to build a jig for making better more consistent segments.

With Guitar building there is always one more jig to build....

Cut to size and inlaid into the top

Outer & inner purfling added and planed down

Planed and scraped

Looks good.

Finished with the sound hole bound in black

Working on Rosettes

One of the nice things about doing this just for fun at this point is you can work at your own pace and on whatever interests you at the time so right now I feel like working on Rosettes..

Here is the progress on the Ukulele rosette, for this one I just used random pieces of scrap glued together.

Glued and leveled with purfling lines

And here is a start on the rosette for the crossover guitar, lots more to do wit this one before it is ready to be glued in.

Two Necks

I had a bit of time this weekend to do some work on the Crossover Guitar and Tenor Uke.. I've got the two neck roughly cut to size..

Maybe time to joint the tops & backs.
