The guy in this vid makes some Brazillian guitar like things using a small variety of hand tools. Google translate called them viols but I think that was because it was doing a Portuguese translation not a Brazilian Portugeseback country creole translation.
carving a guitar by machete? well this is an eye opener...feel positively decadent with a power drill ..lol
was he actually cutting frets from a piece of metal?
Yes he first flatten it then he cut them with a chisel .
Thanks for sharing. It was great watching a simple way of life, and the use of basic tools to build with . What spectacular results.Made me feel good watching it.
