Or like the upper horn in some basses?.......t
Never done it, but I'd use some simple hand-held wood carving tools: gouges, v-cuts, chisels...but then again, I'm a cheap boyscout, and I like taking things slow. Nothin like some old fashioned whittling...
...of how a violin maker does it.
I'm gonna try it too. Seems simple but I bet it's not especially a cello or bass sized scroll.
I want to try to do a cool upper horn and was wondering what tools to get from stewmac....t
You may want to check out grizzly.com for wood carving tools also. They seem to have decent prices on everything.
Hey Ryan you will have to check out the Carl Thompson style bass when I get it up and running it will be interesting....t
I have made three scroll basses now and used a rounded wrasp, and a beveled wood file, and a precision sander
Don't you mean "wownded wasp" You Wascally Wabbitt. Sorry saw your mis-spelling and could't help it. Especially with a name like "toonman"
Do you have a photo or link to a rounded rasp and a beveled wood file? Thanks ...tom
If you really want to give this a shot, I suggest picking up a couple good gouges and maybe a small v-groove chisel. As well as familarise(sp) yourself with sharpening them. Then grab a chunk of scrap and have at it. I tried one a few years ago with a couple basic gouges, and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. Good Luck.
