I really love your work and am thinking of trying something like this myself.
Previously I have just used the hollowing out a solid block of wood and my own invention band sawn bowl uke techniques https://www.instructables.com/id/Band-Sawn-Bowl-Ukulele/
How do you form your staves?
What kind of mold do you use (if any).

...and if you need even more help, try watching Turkish and Egyptian Oud makers on Youtube-thats how I learned to make a bowl back instrument.
