Default Multiple Rosettes

Using the oval jig and a combination of template guides gives me some new rosettes for a semi solid electric ukulele that I am building. I sawed 3 out of this blank.

I am musically challenged, but you work herein looks super-nice. If it sounds half as nice as it looks, it will be very impressive. I admire people with musical skills! I also admire those who can build something with such curvilinear tangency such as this! Amazing!
My wife plays a handful of instruments: Cello, Violin, Bowed Psaltry, Mandolin & Piano. I cannot even get a radio to sound right! Keep-up the good work - it gives guys like me goals to work toward.

Mike, please load all your photos on our site. I know this is extra work but we have many broken links because companies have changed servers. This information will be viewed for years in the future and it is a terrible loss when the photos are no longer accessible.

Very neatly done how was the method achieved? What combination of Guides and templates were used?

40mm guide bush and 3/8" cutter. A large oval template and a smaller one in MDF that was a test cut from a previous test cut. I made 4 test cuts combos and found one that cut the recess, one for the outside of the mahogany and a third that cut the inside of the mahogany. One template was not good for this combo. I could have changed bits and bushes, but worked with just 1 setup. The centre lines were important to line things up, as was running a pencil inside a washer to guage cuts.

Some of the cleaner photos. I added a wrap of tape around the template guide to get an exact fit.
