The arching
Sunday, August 27 2006 17:04
After having glued the purfling and gouged the purfling fluting, I am now carving the arching of the back plate. As you can see on the following pictures, this is done with thumb planes. Those planes are very small, and you hold them between the fingers. On the first picture the flaming of this mable is very visible.
