|Warren D - Indian Rosewood OSJ!
|Your Dickey Guitar
|Installing the neck and tail blocks are the beginning of a guitar
rimset. This is Warren helping out, clamping the sides into the mold for
precise measurement, then cutting. Since starting making guitars in
1999, these little lever-action bar clamps are one of my favorite tools.
The brand name is Klemmsia and they are made in Germany.
|This fine looking wood is kind of pretty on Mom's breakfast table. Easter Eggs? Must have been
last Spring, has it been that long? The zig zag marquetry in the back of this guitar is very
handsome against the deep rich purple color of the rosewood. A fella in Canada makes the linings
I use, they are called reverse-kerf and are made of Spanish Cedar for that wonderful smell.
|Paua Abalone Rosette looks fine against the bare Western Red Cedar
top. The tooling for guitarmaking must be very precise as the depth of cut
and width is very important to get a good tight fit.
