Soundboard, almost done

This is looking okay. Engelmann spruce, with rosette of padauk. The braces are spruce also.

Soundboard with rosette installed.

The discoloration around the rosette will even out in finishing.

The rosette was pore-filled with cyanoacrylate (CA) glue. If you haven’t worked with it before, know that the fumes will melt your eyeballs. And if it isn’t completely dry and you swipe shellac over it, the pores will turn white. Fortunately, another application of CA fixed the problem. I think.

And obviously, the braces go on this side. More or less like this.
