« Part 2: Sanding, some assembly, and the oops Part 3 of Silent Fiddle Build series Part 4: Neck Mortise »

And here I am filleting the fiddle to bring it down to the thickness of a violin.

I cleaned this up with a hand plane and some sanding.

Too bad it wasn’t twice as thick as needed so you could have two fiddles when you were done sawing. ;-)

My sweetie asked me, “What we’re you doing in the shop today?”

“Turning big pieces of wood into little pieces. Tomorrow I’ll glue them together into big pieces again.”

“Don’t be cute.”

“I find it very difficult not to be cute. [wink]”

It’s a good thing she loves me.

Dave,
Wouldn’t it have been easier to resaw this prior glue up? Just thinking & was curious. I really have no knowledge in fiddle making.

Yes, except that I had already glued the pieces together. ;-)
