|Brother Amati baroque viola parts|

I have completed the ribs, completed the carving of the head and attached the neck to the ribs, as done in baroque instruments. This enabled me to use the ribs outline to define the contour of the body of the instrument. And after jointing and planing the top and bottom plates, I did the rough carving as you can see below. Next steps are to complete the carving of the arching and insert the purfling.
