« Part 33: Dreadnought Guitar - Adding the back braces Part 34 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 35: Queen Anne Side Table - Completed finish and hardware »

There was more bracing work to do on the guitar. This time a more complex operation on the underside of the guitar top. I found an alternative to the wooden dowel go-bars that I used last time. Take a look at the latest post to see the operation. Thanks for reading!

All I saw was the go-bar use. What was your alternative?

Gary,

In my previous post I showed the Go-bar Deck with wooden dowels as the go-bars. I had a couple of them break so, this time I switched to fiberglass bars for the bracing on the top.
