I'm catching up posting documentation of one of the two 00's I had been working on. Both are built on Ken's KMG 00 12 fret template in the Mega-Mold. This combo has worked great for me. This one has been long in process, and I'm back to finishing it up. I'll quickly post some of the highlights of the process.

Flame figure Maple Back & Sides
Sitka Spruce top
Sitka Spruce bracing
Ebony binding with b/w/b purfling
Ebony head plate and fingerboard with brass inlay
Slot head
Pyramid bridge
1 3/4 nut

First, make sure the humidity is right on

Some really nicely figured Maple for the back and sides.

This one will have an all Maple/Ebony theme - black and white. So a solid ebony center strip for the back.

Before I got my new go-bar deck built, I used Ken's simple stacked note card caul idea for gluing back braces.

Scraping the side wood to final thickness

Bending sides in my home-made jig. The digitally controlled silicone heating blanket makes for great control.

Absolutely beautiful! Just the type of instrument I wish to build.

You have also taken a great interpretation of the Torch and fretboard markers!

Thanks Pat.

I'm fortunate to have a clean office for the delicate work and setups. Tonewood is stored around the corner in a climate controlled room, and all the big power tools and dust creation happens out in the wood shop...
