Building Ojime 2017

Belt-stretching the skins

Sewing one skin took me about 8 hours

Creating the body is the first big job for my new table saw.

Result after cutting 4,5 degree miters - not too bad.

Making the inside curved for a warmer sound. Also saves some weight.

Glueing the body; I created this stave-holder jig to help me.

I than processed the raw body with hand planes, power & hand sanding.

The last step was coloring the body using stain and adding some cotes of oil and lacquer.

All things put together
