Very nice work.

[quote name='robertdo' the front is glued to the garland. Soon mortised. FWIW, the top corners look a little 'heavy' to me. I would take a smidgeon off the top edges to make them n

Melvin:

I REALLY like that particular hue of color... pretty please... can you tell us what colorants you used?

Best regards,

Glad you like it!...a bit of straw color from cooking, a bit of madder and gilsonite and a bit of mulled burnt sienna to prevent it being too transparent and add some visual body.

Not quite but thanks for asking...I notice your graduation scheme...thats looks like alot of different thicknesses to blend together...looks like alot of scraping and hard work...I'm still at the graduation stage of my plates...can't decide how thick to go...been researching some tho...

Talk to you later...

Hi

the graduations you see were the ones when I started to see the f-holes cuts. At that stage I am still using the toothed plane. Fortunately the final graduations were much more averaged, about 2.5mm. I stopped when I could easily bend/twist the plate since I don't know anything about plate tuning or tap tones. the bass bar is now glued on and trimmed.

I am doing the last touches on the box of a Del G model, tomorrow will fit the neck, that is also ready to go.

about 10 hours of work and ready for varnish.

This is the first instrument I do "alla Hargrave" no more scraping non the fluting, just gouge work, also on the corners. The method works definitely much better for me that the way I was trained in Newark.

Can someone please tear my work apart and throw in a couple of ideas on how to get a bit more "Del gesuish" edgework???

Perhaps a change in the gouge sweep and size?

Hi J

The image seems to be a slightly out of focus so it's difficult to see detail, especially the corners.

All the best
