Bracing on Classical Soundboard
This pattern is based upon a Romanillos design, using one arched harmonic bar
Heel and Foot Development
Wedges are used to hold the sides in place where they meet the neck. A very strong method!
Each rosette is unique and designed and made by me to suit the style of the instrument (and its owner!).
Lining-up the coloured strips ready for gluing into planks and then into the rosette "log". This is a tricky but exciting process!
Ready for Back-fitting
This classical instrument has lime linings and is ready for the rosewood back.
