Les tribulations d'un jeune luthier francais.

The way the arching ends on the edge is, for me, a very important part of the esthetics of the instrument. Before cutting the groove all around the plate i look at old instruments to get inspired. Here i found a copy of Del Gesu wich was pretty cool so i take some measurements and photos to help me making mine. I cut the groove a little deeper because of the thickness of the varnish and the wear of the edge.
