« Part 31: Dreadnought Guitar - Assembling the sides and kerfed linings Part 32 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 33: Dreadnought Guitar - Adding the back braces »

This weekend I took the next steps in the guitar project. I posted about an interesting process for contouring the kerfed linings to accept the radiused top and back later in the prokect. I also got quite a surprise while installing the rosette that took a bit of thinking to recover from. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!
