On the Bench

Here are the projects currently under way:


A mango bodied L-00 size guitar. This one will be a bit shallower than the standard L-00.

Another that I’ll be starting soon is an L-00 made from Katalox with a torrefied red spruce top. The top is on order. Here is the Katalox back. Torrefaction is a process whereby the wood is baked at a fairly high temperature in a vacuum. It is supposed to approximate some of the effects of natural aging so that a torrefied top should behave more like very old wood than like new wood. It also makes for a nice dark old looking color.
