Lots of Progress, but still not done

Alright so today a few toys came in the mail. (finger plane, scraper, and 2 cam clamps). the finger plane really helped me get into the contours of the body and really clean things up. I spent about 4 or 5 hours today carving away with this tiny thing. Im pretty sure i'll have a huge blister or two, and im also pretty sure typing wont be as bad once my hand un-cramps. Needless to say it's loborious work, but its enjoyable and i like to see how the arch is taking shape. Here's a few pictures of the guitar and the new plane and scraper.

from far away it looks almost complete, but theres still plenty or planing and sanding to do.

Nice work. You did that with just that little thing on your finger? Seems like torture. You are going to work on your guitar more now since you have to drive the benzo to do it.
