Photos from the Bench

Photo 1 - Top, Back, Sides, and Bindings are roughed out. These have been lightly sprayed with denatured alcohol to approximate how the color and grain will appear when finished. Denatured alcohol is used as it evaporates very quickly without adding any moisture content to the wood.
Photo 2 - Soundholes are cut and the top and back braces are installed.
Photo 3 - Sides, linings, and bindings are bent and ready to build with the top and back.
Photo 4 - The body is ready to "close-the-box".
Photo 5 - The body is built and bindings installed. The neck is assembled, inlayed, and slotted for frets.
Photo 6 - All built and ready for final sanding and finishing!
