Most of my builds are for customers, so they get priority, but I still manage to make some time for "for sale" builds. Check in from time to time to see what I am working on or what's for sale.

Super strong with the design with the way I glue the woods together and the graphite truss rod inside.
Bracing the top
Got my shellac all ready.
2 lb cut. Just picked up a good brush a at local art supply store.
The shellac creates a nice reflective surface especially after I sand it with 2000 grit.
Shaping the braces.
The Spruce around the sound holes takes a lot of shaping. The outside is really thin and gets thicker closer to the sound hole.
Attaching the bottom to the top.
This is a big moment. This is when it all comes together and I have to make sure everything is right before doing so.
Ready for finish
