Begin the build 13 course baroque lute after Jc Hoffman
Wood for Staves Cherry, slab sawn so I will make ribs 2mm thick instead of 1.5mm.
As you can see I cut the staves pretty thick 3/16th to 1/4th of an inch, I power planed the rough cut edge
so at least one side will be close to finished. I still have a lot of planing by hand to get the wood down to 2mm, but I had to enusre that I had enough wood to work with.....
