Here are some pictures of my block plane. I had two blades and used a dremel cutt off wheel to cut teeth into one blade.

I made a short video today, just gluing the corner blocks and end blocks to the form. I use modern glue for this, not hide glue since it's convenient and only temporary and will not be part of the finished instrument.

It's been a while since I worked on the violin due to holidays and bad weather.
Finally it warmed up a bit and I got back out to the shop.

My computer crashed recently so I'm still trying to get set up to save images online so I can post them here.
Until then, here's a couple youtube videos I made yesterday working on shaping the end blocks.

Back in the shop yesterday, I was shaping the C bout ribs. For a bending iron, I use an old iron pipe and a torch and a piece of an old leather belt for the strap. It's not glued to the form, I just clamped it on until it dries thoroughly so it holds it shape better.

Here's a video. I need to get better at making videos. Very Happy
