I was wondering how people here construct their cello molds/forms. There seems to be quite a few methods. Owing to the rib height, a one piece mold seems a little too flimsy, unless you use a really thick piece of wood. I've gone trough a couple of styles and methods, but haven't hit on one that really clicks for me. I've included some pictures of my current iteration, but I'm always interested in trying new and better ways. The blocks are attached to the center piece only, with removable supports along the upper, lower, and middle bouts. The linings can be installed, the supports removed, and the ribs detached from the center form. The post in the back is to attach it to a swiveling vise (veritas carvers vise). I'd love to see some pictures and or descriptions. Thanks!
