Here is one for all the lovers of acoustic instruments : Luthier Peter De Smet (Holland) building a flat top steel string guitar.

(sorry, no embedding according to youtube).

A good friend of mine has an archtop built by him :


This picture was taken just after it was built, which is now over 10 years ago. The guitar has changed colour to a lovely almost-golden colour. It is finished with the utmost attention to detail.
Carved top and bottom, ebony tailpiece and pickguard, ebony bridge, floating Benedetto Pickup (not on the picture) attached to the pickguard, ebony fretboard.
