CNC Shamisen Creation


Perusing through some really old posts, I found a few references to a couple of CNC shamisen projects. Has anyone ever made this work? I’ve been reading a lot about CNC woodworking, and every time I see somebody make some really nice curved surface, I can’t help but think of shamisen. It seems to me that you wouldn’t actually want to make this whole thing, but it could really knock out some of the tedious work like shaping the curved backside of the sao or the convex/concave shape of the dou.
