|On the home stretch|
We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of the rosettes from Russia and in the meantime continued work on joining and thinning the back and sides and bending the sides will proceed apace. Testing and selection of the top wood is under way and I'll probably join and inlay two or three tops from which I will choose the ONE.
The neck scarf joint and heel block is on the shooting board at this time and will be joined. I'm kicking around different ideas for the detail work beyond the rosette and bridge tie block and what to do with the headstock shape and details. I may add a very crude drawing of a shape I have in my head and see what people think of it.
All for now,
