I’ll talk a little to keep you awake in the meantime. Joint Pain isn’t over – I just had to interrupt it to show everyone where I am on violin #2. Rib assembly is all done, plates have been cut out, cleaned up, and edge thicknessed. Now I am gouging to make that poofy roundy violin belly shape. I took several photos along the way and packaged them up into little timelapse animations:
A roughed out maple
butt cheek lower bout.
Roughing out an upper and C bout. Tommy makes a cameo! haha. That’s what happens when you sneak a selfie into my timelapse!!!!
I like to use my ruler this way to judge what I have done. It’s a good way to read the arch.
