Finished headstock- my arms are killing me!
Neck including chanterelle (also perforated)
Just a question, is this still of interest? Do you want different types of images? Just let me know.
I'm lovin' this so far George. As a newbie and fan of understanding the craft behind things I use, what you're providing is right down my alley! Can't think of any image in particular that I want to see at the moment. Thanks!
looks great! can't wait to see this and some of your other Wunderful creations at AEBG V!
Absolutely of interest, George - the tools you're using, shots of the work in progress, anything you want to share is most appreciated by me (and I think everyone else following this thread!)
To see you using the old style tools and doing such beautiful work is very interesting to me. Ready for installment 4
I am going to profile the neck tonight, add a dowel stick and start the carving on Tuesday. I will likely post more then. Next up is to start the pot.
