« Part 4: Prepping the top, back, and rosette Part 5 of One More Guitar series Part 6: Bending the sides »

The past couple of days I fashioned a sound hole rosette and inlayed it into the top.

A short Video of it here, or click the picture

Very cool work. You might think of a router plane to smooth out the inset? We always need more tools. Thanks for posting

I actually have a small ryobi router. And I could us it with a rotary jig to route the inlay groove. But, I used the circle cutter because that’s what I always used years ago… before they had small routers. But, that’s right, it would be better. I’ll use it to do the outside purfling around the edge of the guitar.

Notice the circle cutter has a much longer bar than you can actually buy. Way back I welded an extension onto it to be able to cut a hole larger than the stock circle cutter can handle.
