What mould type?

Recommended Posts

I’m curious to know what types of mould people use and why?

inside mould, full thickness, 12mm centred or on one side?

outside mould?

built on back?

what materials?

Walnut for durability, assuming I think I will be making multiple instruments.  Thickness depends on rib heights to some extent: thin enough to leave room between the linings and the form to allow easier removal of the form.  12 is probably a good general number for those purposes.  Much thinner and the walnut may  begin to cup.  I think it is available at Woodcraft but have never bought it there, still having a stock from a specialty lumber outfit.  Plan to have to plane it down because it tends to come in non-lutherie thicknesses.
