Dry fit of the case.
And now with the back panel installed.
I used spray adhesive to attach the felt to the back panel.
And now a test fit with the felt attached.
Prefinishing the inside faces of the sides before glue up so i dont have to worry about any finish on the felt.
One of the sides blew out at the mortise for the domino.
Thankfully I was able to repair the blow out.
Sizing the decorative top and bottom.
Dry fit of the half lap door frame.
Dry fit of the door frame inside of the case and trimming to even up the gaps. I intentionally made the door slightly oversized so that I could trim and plane it to fit.
Door installed with hinges.
Mortise for the hinge.
Case side of the hinge mortise in progress.
After finish was applied before final assembly.
Assembled with glass installed.
Test fit of the guitar after mounting the hanger.
The turned knob for the door.
The knob ended up needing to be shorted. I used a finish nail cut to size and epoxied into the knob and door frame.
I used a french cleat to mount it to the wall which worked great.
Inset rare earth magnets in the door frame and case side to register the door in the proper position.
