« Part 41: Workbench Part 42 of Current Project series no next part

I’m currently building what I call a ‘box da gamba’ I finally finished carving the neck and should be building the body.

Is there any interest in seeing the creation process or should I wait till she’s finished?

I’d be interested. Hope others are too.

How many strings, and how are you planning to tune it?

I am always interested in any woodworking process, I can always learn something new, or a different approach to working the wood.

I’ll start posting my progress then. I may have as much as a month before reaching the end. It mostly depends on how much ‘billable’ work I get at work. I am getting paid for this instrument, but since I’m teaching myself as I go, he is being very patient.

However, another of my co-workers likes seeing what I’m doing and may commission a one of these for himself. My second one will likely have a higher price, but not sky high.

For that, I thank you. There’s nothing more frustrating than thinking you’re only talking into the wind.
