Cutting the outline of the violin back
Flattened the inner surface of the back with a combination of planes -- block and jointer -- and then traced the rib outilne. Again cut with the jig-saw, with a new blade. The combination of new blade and hard wood was quite nice. Here I am doing some preliminary arching with a toothed blade in the block plane. I think this is a particularly attractive piece of maple, and hope I do justice by it.
