Making a Florentine Cutaway Mold for Guitar #116

In this episode of DIY Guitar Making, I build a mold for a florentine cutaway parlor guitar model. I cover the process of stacking and duplicating the pieces of the mold on the router table, fine-tuning the cutaway with a chisel, and making the best out of your latch mechanism so your mold lasts a lifetime.
