The Twins are Bound!

Aside from that sounding a bit weird, I have successfully finished the binding of the ziricote boxes. One has bwb with amazon rosewood bindings (the flashy brother), and the other has wbw with ziricote (the understated elegant brother). Though they are both in the ugly duckling stages of their existence, I little tender love and care with my scraper, a razor blade, and several sanding methods will make these to beauties shine.
take care!

Shop Progress

A couple update shots of what has been going on in this shop. First, I got the binding rabbets cut in the ziricote twins last night, so that is exciting....

Then, I got Feldman's back on his side...we need to settle on a soundport, and I will start getting that in...then on to the top.

And finally, here is a shot of my messy shop. It gets the job done though...but in looking at this picture objectively, I really need to straighten up.

Ziricote Bryleigh Update

Well, though I wanted to build the ziricote twins entirely together, my plans have fallen apart. Now I just want to get one done in time for a show in February. This will be for sale at that time. Anyway, here is a shot of the inspiration of the guitar with the guitar - Bryleigh. You can see the pink macacauba that I will be using for binding in the shot. Hope you enjoy!
