I’ve been away from my shop for a while, but took some time to sharpen a few plans, break out my gouges and start working on a project I began a long time ago, an archtop guitar. Just some top shaping, first using the gouge to get the general shape, then using two small planes to smooth the gouge marks out. I will hopefully continue refining this top before I attempt the more challenging part–bending the sides and building the acoustic body.
Easing back into it
