New top for an old fiddle, part 3
Plunged through and cut the f-holes. The terminal holes on each end are drilled first, and you're committed at that point. Then, using a deep-throated fret saw, cut out the stems. A little more thinning of the top, then trim up the f-holes. This is nearly there. Done for today, but will look at again tomorrow (on Monday) and finish up before fitting the bassbar.
