Demyx's Sitar: Part 4 (Original Creation)

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 beginning of gesso the still not finished-being-sanded base.

The tuning pegs...

The dark part of the neck, along with the frets.
