« Part 1: Top and rosette Part 2 of Guitar 02 series no next part

I have not been back here at LJ for a while. Had some problems with the internet connection for a time and somehow got used to having no connection even after we got it back.
Anyway, I just finished attaching the braces and the sides to the top. With this guitar, I also decided to try and make my own kerfed lining. These linings usually cost $2.44 each, from a supplier, and a classical guitar will need four pieces, a total of $9.76, shipping not included. Making my own cost me $3.50, plus some elbow grease.
