Amati Bros, part 4

On to making the mould itself, first step is to get the template on the wood, in this case good grade birch plywood, and trace around it.

I think the outline looks good; now to see if I can get it cut out as well.

With bandsaw, rasps, knives, planes, I manage to get the outline to near the scribe line. It's the end of the day, so I'll finish it later, trying to get all the edges square and the curves flowing. The corners will be cut out to receive the blocks, as will notches at the end and neck.
