Cutting f-holes on a hardanger fiddle

This is how I cut them:

After rough cutting the top, I drill the four holes. The small ones from the outside, and the big ones from the inside.

Then I shape the arching, but the f-holes are still only rough

Carving out the inside

To start opening the holes, I saw it. Then uses knives.
