Roughing out the interior of the pegbox. This goes fairly quick, but it is a work-out. I still need to clean up the edges. Lots of curl in this wood, which means it's very easy to get tear-out where you don't want it - which means I have to resharpen tools before finishing up. But another day, I need to get back to repair work.
Following, or trying to follow, a scheme by Joseph Grubaugh and Sigrun Seifert for the Brothers Amati Scroll (Strad magazine, March 2006). I'm not sure that I am interpreting the transition from flat paper to curved surface correctly, but am plunging onward.
A bit of work to cut out the sides of the pegbox and the first turn in the scroll. This highly figured wood really likes to tear out -- lots of work with the rasp!
