7/8 Studio Cello April 2024 Update No 6

After the neck has been fitted and the back glued on it is now time to cut and shape the neck, first with a gouge forward the neck root and then with my carving knife, thumb planes, rasp files and finally sandpaper first rough and then fine grid. Then the outside of the cello needs smoothening and making the surface all beautiful and soft with a scraper. That part of the work is very important and usually takes days to complete.
