Slow and Steady

I've been spending an hour here, an hour there working on the guitar...basically whenever I have a little bit of free time.  It's super slow going, and a little frustrating but now I think it is starting to take shape so that is kind encouraging.  I've made a few mistakes, but nothing major and I've been able to recover pretty well after a bad cut or slip of the gouge.  I'm getting more comfortable with the tools and I have a much better understanding of how the wood will react depending on which direction I make my cuts from.  Here are some updated pics:
