Woke up nice and early at 7 am, which would be our 5am so I was definitely feeling it. Waking up to the gorgeous view sweetened it a little though. We wanted to catch a full day of Dunedin and had to make our way up north by the end of the night. Firstly, we […]

IMG_3995

  I had left the rabbit inlay to dry the previous workshop day so I got to take off the clamps and sand it down. After sanding it down, I saw that there were quite a few holes that were cheeky enough to escape the pressure so I had to fill them back up with […]

Today was all about getting the fretboard inlay in. I firstly started off creating some saw dust from the end of my fretboard so that I can mix it in with the epoxy to get a similar colour when its filled in. Once the epoxy was ready, I placed the bunny in and clamped it […]

Day 11 – Inlay Work & Checking Out

IMG_3763

Spent most of the day routing out the channel for my inlays to sit in. That was a fidgety process – you had to be careful not to take out too much, otherwise you’ll see the gaps that were being filled by the epoxy. Obviously, being handmade and not using a CNC machine does mean […]

IMG_3708

Day 9 was all about making the bracing, trimming off the excess lengths and chiseling out the check out points in the kerfing for the bracing to fit within the sides. As the back bracing was all ready and glued on, all I needed to do was trim off the excess lengths that were actually […]

Day 8 – Side Prepping & Putting in the Rosette Inlay

IMG_3623

The sides were placed into the jig ready for me to plane down evenly so that the back can be put on. When we made the sides we left quite a bit of leeway in case of any measurement mishaps. This was Tor’s amazing inlay work. He is sanding down the fretboard to get the […]
