Paloma is making great progress. We’ve finished kerfing her ribs and we’ve shaped her neck and attached it. Here are the latest update pix.

Paloma's backside kerfing goes in. At left you can see her pre-drilled end block.



Kerfing is complete. She stays in the form for a couple days to set her shape



This is how necks start. We angle cut the blank and glue it back together.



...after a bit of carving, the necks take shape.



Trussed up tight, Paloma gets her neck glued on.



Sound boards heading to planing. Paloma's is the red one in the middle.


Progress! Smile when you play that!
