I will be using Honduran Rosewood for the fretboards on these Pinecones-so I wanted to use the same wood for the end cap. I found some nice scraps in my Rosewood scrap box and cut three caps to snuggly fit against the back. Here they are-glued and clamped.
The glue has set and it is time to shape the end caps. A small rasp does the job nicely
The rasp and a little sanding and this end cap will soon be looking good.
