    Just a sketch

    front and back of laminated beech with mahogany veneer glued on it.
    A core out of something else, also the few points where it is important to have some extra support for the two wings.

    I think it is going to be something like this ...
    Next week a normal scale layout.

    I started doing this with a top and a back for an acoustic guitar: but only the outer line, just to be sure it is always big enough.

    And now ... It does not take more time, so with 2 lines I cut in the middle :p
    I think it is just a little autistic tick I have.
    That's why I like watching little shop tours on You tube: You will notice you're not the only one with those ticks :D
