That’s pretty fast!  Do find the method dictates the shape at all compared to “standard” method?

Yup. I was so tired of wasting time sculpting the arch. This method makes you take very deliberate and large gouge cuts. It also eliminates the need to correct the arch with a scraper. 

Is there a "standard" method?

Maybe cutting cross grain. I did use quotes. :)  I’d like to see a video of this method being done.

sausage method

Hi Nick,

sounds interesting, I'm salivating already!  Is that Bratwurst, or Italian, or Polish, or... :-)  

I'd also like to learn about this technique, perhaps I'd find something applicable to my own gouging/archingmethods.

Thanks, and good luck finishing up the quartet.  Cello looks very nice...

Out of curiosity, who or where did you learn the sausage method from? I would be interested in hearing about it.

Once I fully understand the method, I can expound on it more. Basically it involves centering everything in the barrel of the arch, and gouging straight to the edgework from a tangent of the central cylinder.

Is that the Pete Prier method Jacoby talks about?

I would like to read more about the 'sausage' method.  Where can I find more description of it?

I'm not sure. I don't fully understand it quite yet. I was essentially handheld thought it this first go-around. But once I have a better grasp of things I can elaborate. 

That said, it's not for everyone. The idea is for the arch to fail into the right shape, so to speak.

Thanks,  hopefully once you get more accustomed to the technique you'll post more info on it.   I'm not too fond of the usual 5 cross arches method or the inside first method so I just wing it
