The bracing of the soundboards. From the bottom, number 84 in the press and top, number 82.
82, 83 and 84 all have the same bracing layout. Its not a copy of some famous builder, but my interpretation of a typical 7 piece bracing system.
Number 81 has an experimental 5 piece system.

A guy over at foroflamenco.com asked about the size of my workbench.
Its 150 x 50cm and it works very well. With this size, I can work on both sides of the guitar without having to move it. There´s enough space on both sides of the guitar so that you can clamp a wooden block on bothe sides of the guitar so that it doesnt move when routing, and many other things.
I like to kep my workbench clean. I dont like to enter the workshop and se it with a lot of things on top.
BUT... since every coin has two sides, or everything has its ying yang, I also have a chaos workbench, where I leave dings and dangs and where I sometimes cant find what I´m looking for.
