Well, here is the start of my second guitar project. I imagined this second guitar before I even finished the first one.

Outline of the top

Marking the rosette channels. My method is a bit crude, although this one is better than the popsicle stick I used for the first guitar. A fellow LJ posted a project, a marking tool, that gave me an idea for a circle cutter. I will ask him if I could adapt his simple, yet beautiful design.


Routed the channel using a small router plane

Twenty-seven more little white triangles to go.

After finishing the main motif of the rosette I’m off to routing the channels for the thin white and black lines on the outer/inner radius.

That’s really impressive. I don’t think I have the patience.

I can’t wait to see when it’s finished!
