Finishing Up Some Old Business

As I begin to make the transition from being a school teacher to building instruments full-time, I am encountering a lot of unfinished projects in my shop. Here are two of them.

I started the little soprano in 2009. It has mulberry back and sides and it has a western cedar top. The neck is mahogany and the fretboard, headstock veneer, rosette and end graft are walnut.

The concert on the left was started in 2008. The body is made of some really spectacular black locust. It will have walnut binding, end graft, headstock veneer and fretboard. The neck will be mahogany. Basically, it is going to be a concert version of #4 on my website.



So here we begin! I will be finishing these charming little guys in the next few weeks and you can tag along for the ride.

Until tomorrow….

  1. Love your blog. It looks even better when I can view it on my desktop rather than the iPad. For some reason, iPad and WordPress don’t like each other. You might want to link to your blog from your website. Just a sisterly suggestion.
