Thanks for posting this! How does the tool work to draw the topo lines?

There is a fixed stylus in lower position of the fixture and a pencil that can be set at different distances from it. By dragging the fixture around the edge of the cello with the pencil set at various heights, a series of topographic lines are created. They make any variations in the profile very apparent.

Thanks Bob,

I just started cutting the grooves for the purfling, so I will be posting some content on that procedure shortly.
