Number One
The body

After destroying the plaster of paris mould on my first gurdy, I made a mould out of ply wood. Each section on the drawing was then a main support, with the ribs between being gently sanded to the required form. This made the mould light, and the G-Clamps fit between the ribs to make the laths sit snugly. I glued the Mould together with hot glue and removed the center ribs when the body was complete so that I could then remove the rest of the mould.

This time I drilled the Hole in the middle rib out as it schould be

and I bought the wheel from Kurt Reichmann.

It looks much more impressive with this Marquetry!
