« Part 7: Attaching the back Part 8 of Acoustic Guitar series Part 9: Purflings and Bindings »

Postings will slow down somewhat now. This is what I did today.

On the router table, trimmed off the overhang on the back of the guitar.

Marking out and cutting out for the end-seam inlay strip:

I’m using a piece of quilted mahogany / sapele

that will match the headstock veneer:

My purflings… (Good grief; look at the state of my thumbnail!)

and bindings arrived today. Sorry, I didn’t make ‘em!

Last thing I did was to superglue them together; what a fiddly faffy day

Resting as the sun sets..

That is some fancy headstock wood.

Looks like Blistered Bubinga. I’ve never heard of Pomelle Bubinga like Pomelle Sapele

Hi again Stewart.

Is anything special by which you used Tbond II, instead of TB III?

Great episodes. Cant wait for the binding & inlays. Still can wait for the YTube thing. Hey Andy, give him a break to practice
