The top plate
Sunday, September 10 2006 13:41
Since yesterday, I have started to work on the violin top plate ( made from spruce, the back is made from maple). As you can see below, I have planned flat the top underneath. Drawn the violin outline from the ribs. And cut this outline with a bandsaw. I am now going to start the rough carving of the top to prepare it to insert the purfling.
