Padauk Guitar

Padauk Guitar soundbox complete

Here is the Padauk guitar free from the mold and in one piece now.  The clamps at the top are to make sure the bend in the back plate does not come apart until the glue has whole day to fully cure.  This one has a herringbone rosette on the other side that came out nice as well.  After the Padauk guitar vacated the mold I had room for the Mahogany guitar, which I locked into the mold, and glued in the back plate.  These will need to fully set up overnight just to make sure the glue is fully dry, then I can trim the overhang from the top and back flush to the sides with a flush cut bit.  After that its time to pick out binding strips and cut some rabbets.
