Roses
I have built up a small collection of drawings of lute and early guitar roses that I use on my instruments. They were drawn using CAD software and are 'idealised' or cleaned-up versions of the originals. They are not supposed to be representations of the current state of the rose in question, such as a museum would require. They are intended for makers to use as patterns for applying to the inside of the soundboard prior to cutting the rose.
I am continually adding to the collection so check back every know and then for new drawings.
Below you will find 3 downloadable examples in .wmf format. The rest of the roses drawings are available to order as priced below. They are available as inkjet plots onto acetate (for dimensional stability) or as .dxf / .wmf files on disk.
The Drawings are arranged in 3 sets. There are small savings if you want to buy a complete set or the whole collection.

Lute rose set 1. 6 each or 36 for the set of 7.
Lute rose set 2. 6 each or 30 for the set of 6.

Guitar rose set 1. As priced below or 55 for all drawings needed for the 5 roses.
Post and packing is 3 within the UK and 6 elsewhere per order.

The entire collection of drawings or any selction of more than 5 can be quoted for on request.



If you choose to download the sample .WMF files, you will find they are zipped. You will need Winzip or another unzipper to decompress them.
