Purfling Grooves

Top of fiddle carcass with purfling grooves cut

This is the year that #9 will be completed! The body has been sitting on my bench, looking at me with a reproachful attitude. A couple of days ago I routed the purfling grooves, this afternoon I cleaned up the ones on the top of the body. That’s the easier plate done. I expect that cleaning up the ones on the back plate, which is Maple and Walnut, will take much longer.
