Figured Maple Torres Model and Lots of Bindings

Started working on a figured maple Torres model. Joined the back, trimmed the sides and started on the rosette. I had half-finished interior rosette tiles, but had to make up a new laminate for the outer ladder motif. I recently received some padouk veneer from a friend and I quite like it; it's a very deep red color and becomes a beautiful maroon as it oxidizes. I usually don't use red very much in my guitars in an effort to stay away from dyed woods, but this stuff is great!

Laminated a bunch of back strips, binding and purflings and spent some time trimming them into thin strips with a knife. Happy to be done with that for a while.
