Sorry but I’m not sure I understand you correctly. So on the last post, you prefer the Spruce over Red Cedar in sound quality.
How can I get a good light density European Spruce for less than $60 w/o shipping and tax ?
The density of this rosewood is about 1.05 ton/m3. It also depends on where it's grown.
I decided to brace it like a traditional top, using James Lister bracing pattern. All bracing should weight about <28 grams. (German spruce 0.4). The top will end up at 137-138, I guess. I would like to use Red Cedar if I find a good one and runout of spruce
@Marcus Dominelli: I used Titebond original glue. I can’t figure out how to use hot hide glue to laminate the two skins together. Do you have any suggestions ?
The gluing surface is larger than Nomex. It'll be very hard for the top to be delaminated. When It happened, I know it’s my mistake
The CNC tolerance is +-0.05 or so. It saves time and makes less noise on the tasks that need a router, good tool to make tools.
To avoid all the troubles I'll have with this top in the near future (the sound, cracking, delamination). I decided to use bolt on neck joint with elevated fretboard for easy repair. Which is also another experience.
@ mike.janel: The project will be started in March. I took a picture to show the separate neck and heel (the red part).
Thanks everyone for your comments. I'll keep you updated.
