Shop Rounds | Bridge Design, Lattice Back Bracing, Kerfing, Cedar for Necks, Router Safety Tool

In this episode of DIY Guitar Making, I’m taking a look at some of the progress on guitar #85. I discuss lattice bracing versus ladder bracing, elegant and functional bridge design, why running the side braces up through the kerfing is advantageous, and Port Orford Cedar as a neck wood. I also review a new tool to keep your fingers safe around the router table, and talk about the new rosewood and spruce we will be using for the 2022 workshops.
