It’s been a while since I posted anything…. so I’m re-remembering…. how not to make a gallery.
I have been way too busy at my .5 time day job… too busy to spend enough time on guitars, that’s for sure. The quarter ends in a week or so. I’m right in the middle of grading exams. It’s a 2 day job. But I took a break to put these audio recordings from April to some pictures I took in the winter.
I finished the Hauser, but before I sent it away I took a few pictures.
Just a couple pictures…you can click em to enlarge.
Micah made two roses. He also joined a beautiful spruce top, before he returned to Portland.
I set aside the top and one rose, and decided to inlay his second string rose into a multi-colored cedar top.
Micah finished his two rosettes! It is nice to see them done, mostly very well done. It is also nice to have him in my workshop. I also manage to get a bit of work done on the Hauser model. Filling pores with epoxy. The end-graft is a pretty peice of burl.
Rosettes … I put together a couple and so did Micah. He seems to have caught on to my technique. We both learned a bit.
Micah is working on a guitar in the shop. A bit at a time. Today he was working on rosettes.
Carved the neck this afternoon.
Starting with thickness registration grooves…..
I finished getting the body together a while ago…. Things got busy around the new year, so I haven’t kept the log up to date.
The back is on. The heel cap goes, the heel cap is applied and the heel gets carved around it and then the fingerboard is glued on and neck gets carved.
There is the rosette.
