Next shape forming up...

Next shape is forming up, reverse sidecut, and I have a plan to have one channel in the middle (instead of two that I had before). But I have to say I haven't quite figured out how I'll do it. Shaping the Finnfoam is also easy, just have to keep in mind that the 3d surface shape has to have close to zero curvature (no need to have it exact zero, it just accounts on stretching veneer and possibly creating tension for that reason).
I do the sketches on to a silk-paper (the same that is used for clothes patterns). In Finland you can buy this from the same shops that sell fabrics for making clothes (kaavapaperi in Finnish).
