Dan's First Archtop
Building the Archtop
The Finished Archtop 2006

Here you see the final product.
It was a lot of work but I enjoyed
it and I plan to build more.

Since completing this project I have built a duplicator which carves top and back inside and out to a rough form which can be hand finished from there. This saves a lot of time in the
overall construction of the body.

In the near future I plan
to offer pre-carved tops and backs through this web site and through
our ebay store for anyone interested
in building an archtop themselves.
Email for details.
