After the rosettes were complete, the top was trimmed to about 1/4" from the outline of the finished top, and I flipped it over on its back to start attaching the bracing.

This picture shows the X-braces already attached, and the clamps are holding down the top brace.

The next picture shows the completed bracing of the top of the guitar.
