« Part 1: The soundboard and rosette. Part 2 of Acoustic Guitar series Part 3: Kerfing strips. »

For this, my first effort, (that suggests there’ll be at least a second!) I’m using some pieces of sapele that have been lying around for some time.

Bending iron by Heath Robinson or Rube Goldberg!

I have always wanted to have three hands too.
I am jealous.

Love this. I’d just like to know what you’re using to trim the sides in the last photo. Kind’a looks like a pull saw, but I can’t tell for sure. Your jigs are terrific. If I ever get around to building my own guitar, I’m gonna steal your jigs.

Great contuinous pictures. And I can see that the five finger clamps are coming to good use.

Bubbs – Yes, it’s a Japanese style pullsaw. As for the jigs, they’re mostly from Jonathan Kinkead’s book: “Build your own acoustic guitar”
