Fun with chisels

5 July 2009

WELL. After an overly long hiatus, I’m back on the Hardanger path. Today I borrowed my roommate Jacob’s excellent little chisel set and started chipping at the neck channel. I have never used chisels before, and the thock thock thock noise drove me to earplugs. The back steps in the sunlight were a great place to work, and I grabbed a couple strawberries from my planterpots while I chiseled. And chizzled. Er. Photos!

This needs to be deeper, but it will eventually be the channel that the four sympathetic strings run through underneath the fingerboard.
