Hi everyone, decided I’d start sharing the progress on the shamisen I’ve started carving. I’m making it based off of Kyles book, using African Padauk (shout out to Windsor Plywood in Bellingham!)
Happy to answer any question to my process or woodworking in general as I know it can intimidating to start even buying the “correct” tools.
So far I’ve cut out the the blocks I needed and have begun shaping the Sao.
I’ll keep posting updates as I make more progress.
