Mary May's on line wood carving lessons ***AND turning blanks for carving a Philly Highboy rosette #1: Basic beginnings for a new carver...

FIRST ENTRY Have been selling these deck cooler cabinets pretty well this summer. My twist is to carve on the front of them. Team logos, peoples names, company logos… etc. But my carving skills were defined by he sharpness of the Knack knife I was using. Went to Woodcraft in Walpole MA and saw Andrew Teixeira do a carving exhibition a month or so ago. Got the bug, but the first class was not until November. So I googled wood carving lessons and found Mary May ! And that was a ...

1st Acoustic Guitar Happy-Fun Time #4: Rosette Design, Joining the Soundboard, and Performax 22/44 Fun

10-16-2012 05:12 PM by Cosmicsniper | 8 comments »

I’m swamped with two other concurrent projects at the moment, but I have found time to contemplate a Design for the rosette, as well as play around a little with my new eBay bargain, the Performax 22/44 drum sander. Rosette Theory The idea of the rosette is derived less from artistic design opportunities, which it certainly is, but more by the structural need to reinforce the sound hole in such thin, soft woods like spruce, cedar, redwood, or whatever stock is normally chosen for ...

Building an Acoustic Guitar #4: The Rosette

04-01-2012 10:12 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

The soundhole rosette is an aesthetic embellishment that provides an excellent opportunity for the luthier (or newbie like myself) to leave his distinctive impression on the finished instrument. Consequently I spent much time considering the design for the rosette on my first guitar build. Although I’ve significant experience inlaying wood, I’ve never worked with abalone or mother of pearl as is commonly used. In researching materials, I discovered just how pricey abalone and R...

I Made a Batch of Rosettes Today

12-03-2010 04:18 PM by helluvawreck | 21 comments »

Every now and then I have to make a small batch of rosettes in the machine shop. I normally don’t do this on this Bridgeport because I don’t want the dust to get on the mill. However, I did today because I had to do a little work on the small mill. We have a couple of other machines to do these in bigger quantities but this is just as good a way as any to do them in quantities of 50 -100 pcs. The other reason that I prefer to do this on the smaller mill is because the highe...

Luthiery Fun #2: Rosette

07-08-2010 09:07 AM by Chinitorama | 3 comments »

The top was glued up as any other panel would be, only thinner at about 3mm. The material was a lucky find at a local lumberyard. Nicely quartered cedar is easy to find here in BC. Unless noted otherwise, Titebond 3 is the glue used. Rosettes in classical/flamenco guitars are most often mosaic and herringbone inlay. I love the look of traditional rosettes, but they are complex to make from scratch. Mass-produced rosettes can be purchased from most of the big luthier supply houses. As...
