A rosette by any other name… Sweet.


The top of the guitar is two pieces. They are thicknesses to 3.2mm and joined on a shooting board. The nail and batton method is used to glue them.

The rosette design is made from strips of perfling. A dremmel with a special circle cutting attachment is used to route out three channels. 1.5mm 7.25mm and 1.5mm. They are 1.5 mm deep.

The perfling is glued in and clamped between a piece of MDF and perspex. A sharp scalpel and sand paper was necessary to clean up the routing. 

Job done. Off to lunch.

Put her through the drum sander the next day and finished leveling by hand with a small scraper.

It looks really great!
