Getting a head

As mentioned in the last video, the head shape had to be cut-out and tuner holes drilled. Here is the result.
One of the trickiest operations is carving my vee shaped volute, done mainly with a chisel. 
The head now is really finished, nothing left to do, I’ve even filled the grain of the ebony! A practical reason- I do this nowadays before drilling the tuner holes, that way you don’t have try to clean the grain filling medium out of the holes!
