NK Forster Making a guitar: Back Struts 1

| February 19, 2008 | 0 Comments

Simple process really, just basic wood machining. I use quarter sawn European Spruce for my back struts, nothing else. Mark ’em out, cut them, rout to shape. Sand and mark the height, cut on the band saw and notch the back strips to receive them. Glue them on and there you have it! www.nkforsterguitars.com

NK Forster Guitars Making a Guitar – bending sides

| August 28, 2007 | 0 Comments

Bending an Indian Rosewood guitar side, by hand. It was getting a bit dull to watch so I chopped a couple of little bits out – the total time was about 10 mins. The non cutaway side took around 6. Must be getting slow! It takes nearly that long to put sides in a modern bending machine. If I compromised the design – made the waist and the cutaway less tight it would be quicker still, but that’s putting the cart before the horse eh? Design first, that’s my way. www.nkforsterguitars.com
