Designing and Carving the Pegbox and Volute

Will Whedbee is a recognized and prolific instrument maker in Chicago whom I have had the great fortune of working with and studying under.  For the form of my pegbox and scroll I used one of his cello templates, and then enlarged it by a bit to make it "bass sized".  I modified a few dimensions of the pegbox to accommodate the installation of machine tuners and a C-extension, while maintaining the elegant curves and eye catching shape of the scroll.
