Hello all, #
#I'm still plugging away every so slowly, trying to satisfy the wife with renovations and get my other things caught up before the winter decides to blow us in. I've got the neck basically complete and so far so good. Next, I'd like to tackle the soundboard. In the Siminoff book he says to cut out the soundboard as per #pattern #4. I got a hard time finding these "patterns" he speaks of. I'm going to use drawing #12, that's the one with the contours. Is this the correct drawing? Do I cut out the soundboard right up to the edge or should I #leave some extra area around the pattern. Is the scroll section cut out at this stage or save that till later? Once I start carving the inside, do I just use the contour patterns to work with and then only use the measurements on drawing #12 for the work on the outside of the soundboard.
