Bindings, Bearclaw and Bridges

It's been a busy week back in the shop. I made up an entirely new binding and purling scheme for the next six months or so. Here a couple photos of me planing some beautiful German spruce to thickness. This particular top has quite a bit of bearclaw figure in it. I'm also French polishing a bridge for the new Torres guitar that is getting much closer to being strung up. It's probably less than a month away!
