Photos: new theorboes of the smaller (sl76/130)  "French" model , well suited for the solo music by Castaldi or Visée.
I use to work on two lute or theorbo bowls simultaneously. It is both efficient and the mind and body adapt to certain work processes when doing a type of work for some period. The theorbo bowl in cyprus and walnut is now almost completed. I will then make one in rosewood on the same mould.  On a different  mould I make a 6 course Frei lute , Vienna "C34 " . The Record 077-a plane is an essensial  tool when shaping the rib joints on the mould.
