How dense they are, i.e. weight divided by volume. But of course I don't need the exact number here.

I were actually planning to use oak as a lining myself! Partly because it's fairly easy to get and it is also at least a bit dense (heavy), which I think could be a good thing here.

I read about oak in Byers site and Lazar's site.. if they use oak as a lining then it is a good choice and for me! But if you want you can use and maple.. I sticked 3 parts from 2,5 mm the one.
For the top ..and 2 parts from 2,5 mm for the back!

Using thick volume of purple heart and intermittently sited herringbone motif at center portion make me feel refreshing. It reminds me of some 1920's Santos Hernandez design. Anyway a unique and beautiful design. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't mean to say you copied one of 1920's SH rosette but when I see your rosette design, a feeling occurred to me that was reminiscent of one of the master's rosette design.

It's beautiful. If I were shopping for another guitar based on appearance, I would definitely be drawn to that rosette!
