Thanks gave it a first shot(but not too successful)
Thanks cabinet man gave it a first shot, I was able to get a wood piece as shown in the picture attached but then I tried to chisel out cut 7 the last piece and the whole thing broke.
cut 5 and 6 are easy, but without cutting 7 the piece wont dislodge, now as this whole thing is surrounded I cant saw it off , the chisel+hammer method just broke the piece as it becomes slightly flimsy once the 6 cuts have been made.
Please advise how to get arround this.I used redwood about 1 inch wide. I dont know if I should get some other wood like maple or oak or something. Please let me know.
Scribbles this is to make the violin more compatible to my sitting down playing posture.(As I am 6 ft tall without this extra 4 inches in extension I have to bend too much and get back ache because of this.)
Thanks for all the replies.
