Scroll 1 in process


It's been a long cold winter. Since I only keep enough electric heat in the shop to keep the fiddles happy, I have not been out to do any work. This afternoon was bright and sunny, and the shop was fairly warm. So while I procrastinated from a client job, I worked on the first scroll.

I had started chiseling the volute at the Goderich Celtic Festival. I decided to start on the scroll for the "Sinister" so that if I make any mistakes, it will be less likely to be on Ashley's. This afternoon I took the second side down to match the first side quite closely. Now that the outline is pretty much in place I can work on the proper profile and cleanup.
