Finishing purfling work

Post date: Oct 26, 2014 1:47:0 PM

After the purfling groove was completed yesterday,I worked quite fast today. Bending cutting and inserting the purfling is a continuous process for me. I don't bend them in upper and lower bouts as the get a smoother curve that way. I use the end of a piece of boom-stick to push the purfling down into the groove, using quite a bit of force so no gaps is left under the purfling. The purfling channel is easy to carve while the edges are still wet from glue. Channel roughly worked down to ~3,5 mm, with a small gouge and finger plane.
