Sal's Flamenco - endgraft mitred & final touch up the staircase binding/purfling ledges

Thursday, July 09, 2009


The little nubs on the four corners of the rosewood endgraft, left behind after the staircase routing, was chiseled away. The purflings, seen here are mitred at 45 degrees, on all four corners, waiting to receive their mating purflings.


The heel design has a continuous heel cap from the paulownia back plate. So, to receive the bindings and purflings, it is treated differently than usual...


The staircase ledges are carefully continued all round, by hand (chisel, mini-file, razor blade that is).


On the spruce soundboard end, the staircase binding/purfling ledges are also continued by hand, which the router cannot reach.
