« Part 3: Gluing up the neck and back plates, prepping the mold Part 4 of One More Guitar series Part 5: The rosette: made and inlaid in the guitar top »

The past couple of days I prepared the top, and back and began making the soundhole rosette. Making a guitar is sort of like building a machine. But in this case you don’t buy the parts and assemble them. You make the parts first, then when all the pieces are made you can assemble them. I’m at the point where a number of parts are in the process of being made together on a rotating basis.

I’m really enjoying this series! I’ve build several electric guitars but I’m planning on building some acoustics in the near-ish future. It’s neat to see some different methods.

Thanks, I’m no expert but this method is about as simple as you can get. I was thinking today, the only thing outside of my regular woodworking shop tools I think I’ll have to purchase ‘toolwise’ is some clothespins, L hooks, and a bicycle inner tube. I know that all sounds strange, but you’ll see. Can’t do this without them or without specialized equipment.
