L-00 from Grellier's plans

I followed the discussion on the plans Eric started last spring and printed them out. Choose the L-00 for some reason.
Moved the sound hole and x bracing up 1/2" to accomidate sh placement on sound board. Later saw series of YouTube videos on bracing and learned that might be a big change.

I used tendilions construction, as I enjoy it. Worked smoothly.

Then carved off the overhang.

Macacauba and curly Sitka spruce.
This is my 3rd build.
