After more hours of carving and sanding than you could possibly imagine, this is the side and back views of the not-yet-finished backside.
Neck of the sitar, sanded and painted with seven or nine layers of gesso! And hanging from the ceiling to dry.
After gessoing the plywood front, I chose my color and did the dark blue interior. Note that the edges haven't been touched yet.
The dark part of the neck, along with the frets.
