Bending, Planing and French Polishing

Here are a handful of short clips and photos from the last week of building. Planed and cleaned up tops, backs and sides for three guitars, started bending sides, glued the bridge on another and started the final polish. Had to make new bridge cauls since I didn't bring them in the move. If you are wondering why there is aluminum foil on the bending iron, it's so that the residue from bending rosewood doesn't get all over that nice white maple.
