Now I also make jewelry

Thursday, 14 January 2010


Another baritone; mostly walnut for the neck, the sides and the back. Creamy yellow cypress for the soundboard: a single solid piece, so I'm keeping the bracing to a minimum. The neck will be joined to the body with dowels, but also glued onto the soundboard extension.
My first time at using a proper wooden mold to maintain symmetry. Building a mold adds a lot of preliminary work and expense to the construction but I plan to use it for several "specimens".
Just finished bracing the top, now I'll brace the back and apply a graft under the center joints.
