Plates

The plates were glued up and the outline taken from the ribs.  Templates made from the poster were used for the profiles.  The purfling groove was cut by hand and the purfling glued in.  Hollowing of the plates was done with attention to thickness, and mode 2 and mode 5 vibration frequencies.  Finally, the f-holes are cut, the bass bar is added, and the edges chamfered.

Let me know what you think...
