Two rosettes are installed!
Didn’t get a lot of time to work on things this week. But the second rosette went in easier than the first. Both planed and scraped flush with the tops. For my first guitars and first handmade rosettes, I’m pretty pleased so far. Came out pretty tight with minimal gaps despite the less than perfect hand cut purflings.
Another quick coat of shellac on before I cut out the sound holes and can start bracing.
This was one of the steps I that was most nervous about because of all the time put into both the rosettes and soundboards, one slip and things could be ruined. But there are still plenty of those moments ahead.
