I WAS ABLE TO get a lot done today- here are a few pics.
Carefully planning the location for the Spanish Heel connection I drew the cut location on each neck
I was able to rough shape all three necks
Then I cut circles of thin cedar and glued them cross grained to support the sound hole. I was able to get all the braceing glued on fronts and backs also.
And checking that the saw blade was cutting at perfect right angle, I cut the slots that will accept the sides.
Don't you love a good spokeshave. This is a good way to hog off a lot of wood while feeling the shape of the neck form under your finger tips. I love to use it.
Here I am cutting slopes on the rings thinning them down a bit. I will finish sand these even further so that they will not be seen from outside the sound hole and feel finished to the touch.
