1937 Hauser Top

Here is the 1937 Hauser top plan.  I’m using R. Brune’s plan and notes.

This is traditional Spanish style building.  (I’m not sure how this is like Hauser’s method or not.)  The top is braced, then mounted on the solera workboard.  From here, the neckis aligned and then glued.

Then the sides are fitted to the neck and top.

    I really like the feel of your work area, spacious with that special warm wooden colour touch.
    I like the blog report, the picture, the development of the work through the numerous building process. looking at your pictures a quote by Dali came to my mind, he once said that he liked the sound of his paint brush on the canvas, it reminded him of the sound of bees at work … day in and day out! … And the picture of your work in process give quite the same feeling of continuous devotion!
    I am looking forward to see more picture until the day I can (hopefully) hear this latest beautiful work of yours!


    P.S. Micah’s rosette are beautiful!
