Two soundboards all braced, some carving left to do

Tired of looking at my bracing?  I am.

Getting close.  Put on and carved the transverse bar, upper cross strut and lower V braces.  My little plane worked like a champ for shaping the bars.  I was hoping it would since it was too big to use on the fan braces.

Just glued on the lower cross struts, which are curved to about 28’ radius.  Hope to carve those, cut them back to within the perimeter and clean up any rough spots with some 220 tomorrow.  Then on to the backs or sides… backs involve bracing… maybe sides… or get them all done while I’m in brace mode?  Whatever I feel like I guess.
